Seishin Judo - a pure mind

Meaning of Seishin

The Chinese character of "sei" means pure or truthful and the character "shin" roughly translates to heart or mind.

Our club's literal translation of the word SEISHIN is "pure mind".

Judo is a form of martial art that requires swift use of the mind as well as the body. Your body must act in unison with your mind and spirit to produce an instinctive action, yielding to your opponents movements, yet delivering a decisive and graceful finish.

In order to condition one's self to be able to take such decisive action it is important to train your mind together with your body. You must be able to concentrate and totally focus your mind towards achieving your aim. At Seishin we aim to combine your mind, body and spirit into a total effort.
