Mushin


What goes through a person’s head when he is held up at gunpoint? “Mind Like Water (Mushin)” is a humorous dissection of the four-second decision-making process when a martial artist faces the barrel of a .45 automatic.
Some masters believe that mushin is the state where a person finally understands the uselessness of techniques and becomes truly free to move. In fact, that person will no longer even consider themselves as “fighters” but merely living beings moving through space.
