Re: Article: What is Zanshin? by Chuck Clark

In my opinion, there is no one out there who explains Japanese concepts in English better than Chuck Clark, at least in terms of martial arts. I have found that there is a corollary in music for the idea of zanshin. I think that zanshin is the pause between when a master musician has finished a piece of music and the applause begins. If you have experienced such a concert, I think that you have experienced zanshin.

Thanks for the article, Mr. Clark
