Re: budoshin and zanshin?

I've not come across budoshin, so shouldn't comment without seeing the kanji, although at a guess I'd say budo heart.

Roughly translated Zanshin means awareness or connection. It's knowing what's going on around you whilst you are practicing, or at any other time for that matter. It's maintaining a connection with your uke even though you may have just pinned them to the ground and have backed away to let them up, i.e. not turning your back on them because you've finished.

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"

Re: budoshin and zanshin?

Perhaps you meant fudoshin? Roughly translated, it means "immovable mind".

Smile Re: budoshin and zanshin?

Hello Anthony,

As Osensei Ueshiba Morihei stated " Budo = love" and Shin = heart, mind, a spirit, although you will find much older derivations of these words in Japan. I quote these definitions that Osensei expressed for us Aikidoka.

I agree with the definition of Zanshin that you have already received.

Thank you for asking your question.......
