Three States of the Warrior’s Mind

Zanshin, Mushin, Fudoshin: Apply the ways of Karate-do to harness the Warrior’s Mind

Zanshin — The Fighting Mind

Definition: Total awareness, alertness —being aware of your surroundings and enemies, while being prepared to react.

When we choose to live intentionally and act with purpose we no longer fall victim to whatever happens to us throughout our day.

Mushin — ‘Mind No Mind’

Definition: A mind not fixed or occupied by thought or emotion and thus open to everything.

If we remain cluttered mentally, focused on something else, something other than what we are immediately engaged in — we fail.

Mushin is the state of mind that is not fixed on any one thing, not cluttered up by your everday thoughts or emotions. In combat this is essential because you must not try to guess what your opponent is going to do next, you must simply experience and react to them.

Fudoshin —The Immovable Mind

Definition: It is a philosophical or mental dimension to Japanese martial arts which contributes to the effectiveness of the advanced practitioner.

When you set your mind on something and let NOTHING stand in your way to getting what you want or achieving your goal that is Fudoshin. It doesn’t mean to achieve your goal at all costs, doing it without bringing harm to others is essential. But the central concept is the unbreakable will to finish what you started.
