The phrase "ZAN SHIN" is depicted in beautiful Japanese calligraphy.
ZAN SHIN is a state of awareness, of relaxed alertness, in Japanese martial arts. A literal translation of ZAN SHIN is "remaining mind". In several martial arts, ZAN SHIN refers more narrowly to the body's posture after a technique is executed
In the context of kendo, ZAN SHIN is the continued state of spirit, mental alertness and physical readiness to meet the situation (such as an opposing attack) that must be maintained when one returns to kamae after attacking. It is one of the essential elements that define a good attack.
