Smile zanshin

Zanshin can be translated to remaining spirit (literally), or "combative awareness".

In my definition, zanshin is when you stay aware, and don't turn your back instantly to the opponent for example. Zanshin is being aware and relaxed at the same time. I hope i described it right, there is 1:24 AM, and english is not my strongest side
