Many martial artists train to achieve this state of mind during kata so that a flawless execution of moves is accomplished - that they may be achieved during combat or at any other time. Once mushin is attained through the practice or study of martial arts (although it can be accomplished through other arts or practices that refine the mind and body), the objective is to then attain this same level of complete awareness in other aspects of the practitioner's life.

This is my 3rd martial arts dictionary. I'm not that impressed. The book is largely devoted to more full explanations of the terms used in various arts. But it's hardly encompassing. In fact, there are so many items left out that I'm left wondering why it wasn't 3 times it's size. There's certainly enough source material!

I have another Martial Arts dictionary which is tiny (not quite as thick and about 1/4 the size) with 10 times the number of terms and they are fairly well explained in there. I like reference material, so this will probably get a 2.5 in reality, but I'm rounding down for lack of depth. The explanations are quite nice, however, so if that's what you are looking for, you will be happy. It does, at least, cover some phrases as well as words.

If, like me, you are looking for a real dictionary with a ton of entries and hopefully as many phrases, as they say in Star Wars: "move along"

Decidedly Japanese. If you're into Japanese martial arts then this is a GREAT book for you! If you are into any arts with different countries of origin, then I would probably avoid this book.

Example: There are almost 2 pages of background for Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido. There is only about a paragraph about Bruce Lee and it contains inaccuracies such as insinuating he was part of a roving gang that looked for street fights. It also states that Bruce died in 1974 when it was actually 1973.

There are no entries for Jeet Kune Do, Kali/Escrima/Arnis, and it only says Muay Thai is the name given to thaiboxing and to "see kickboxing".

On the other hand, there are countless entries for specific techniques of judo, sumo, karate, and other Japanese arts.

It's a good book but FAR from a dictionary of martial arts. It should be titled "A Dictionary of Japanese Martial Arts" and just leave the other countries out of it.

This is one of four or five books I always keep nearby when writing. The content is comprehensive and easy to use and I appreciate the lack of stylistic or nationalistic prejudice.

This is a great overall dictionary for any martial artist. It has many older references that newer books do not cover.
