Meditation: The mind, like the body,
benefits from training. Weekly meditation classes are available based on the form of Rinzai Zen, the style
historically preferred by the samurai of Japan.
While Zen's ultimate goal is Satori (enlightenment), for martial
art students, the emphasis is on what may be considered a byproduct,
Mushin (lit. no mind).
Mushin refers to the state of mind
that is alert and unclouded by the barrage of
thoughts that confront us from one moment to the next. It is that state of
mind that resides in the continuous present moment.
Meditation is open to everyone.
