Zen in Zazen:
As we sit down to do Zen Meditation, we will gradually enter into ourselves and we will go into a slow mental progress, we will begin to feel the moment of emptiness, of separating and selecting the thoughts, every day we will increase that freedom to progress progressing towards our interior in peace and tranquility, our emotions will be greater and we can control them in Zazen.
Zen in ShiZenTai:
We will meditate standing and moving; We will learn to fix our mind on what we are doing by doing the breathing techniques in displacements with absolute concentration; which will allow us to dominate the movement and the moment to do it, we will increase the experience of moving mentally and physically in techniques that allow us to strengthen the union of energy with our mind and body.
Your mind, body and spirit are connected shin-ki-waza
Zen is Action and there are four steps in life; the mind; energy; the Body and all those that generate an internal action and a reaction to the external stimulus. For that we must be prepared to act at the exact moment.
Shin is the Power and the Mental Attitude to use the Body 100%. The body moves only if the Shin gives the order, it also controls the technical form in doing so, the speed of action and reaction in the realization of the movement. The source that unites and empowers the mind and body is the Ki, which is the source of energy that generates the action and reaction of the body’s movement.
Ki is the internal energy that every being possesses and we in particular identify and can increase it to create greater vitality in body movements and expressions.
The ki is the bridge between the mind and body, it causes the body to perform the movements under a mental order to move.
We use the ki in all movements we do or in a specific technical form of sport or in everyday life … That is the Ki.
Waza is our body, it is the technical form of the specific movement that we teach; the vehicle to which we give physical form to any reaction that the Shin produces, The Ki is the bridge and energy that gives the body vitality to do so.
We can train and improve our daily and specific movements of our sport.
Jipsu is the environment that surrounds us and all the information we can capture through the senses; what causes an action and mental and physical reaction in our being. With Jipsu we can have the exact reaction to the perceived stimulus and do it … we can get over and handle it at any time.
