We master Karate in order to control our minds and avoid strife, not to gain the skills to cause
harm. When you are an early practitioner, you might believe that your enemy is the one in front of you. However as you practice, you will eventually realise that your true enemy – the one you should overcome – doesn’t exist in your external, but rather in your internal world. Therefore you need
to clear your mind from any disturbances from the external world, so that you can overcome yourself from the inside.
My work, “mushin” embodies this principle of Japanese martial arts, “conquer oneself”.
