That's Capital, Visor. Thanks!
Reminds me of Mr Anderson aka Neo in Matrix dodging bullets from the Agents. LOL!

Ok, but you should try throwing balls at your boy first before using bullets.

And being in the zone. Interesting bit about "error parking".
Perhaps that's whysome players after a mistake, even though they don't have any noticeable sweat, they walk to the side of the court to wipe and fling off sweat from their face.

Muga-mushin (無我無心?) is a compound term of muga and mushin. Muga literally means no-self (derived from the Sanskrit anātman) and Mushin no-mind (also from the Sanskrit a-citta). What is negated is the empirical body-mind as an ontological independent state of existence. Muga and mushin point to the same thing, the state of egolessness, but from different perspectives. Muga refers to the negation of the physical state, mushin to the mental state of empirical existence.
To understand better mushin one needs to understand acitta, or simply its Sanskrit-root citta. Citta is not easily rendered into English. As is the case with so many other Sanskrit terms, there does not seem to be a precise equivalent for it in English. Previous translations have proposed a variety of renderings, such as 'mind-stuff', 'thinking-principle', and similar compound words. In many instances, citta seems to convey consciousness, mind, intellect or psychic mass that orders and illuminates sensations coming from without—can serve as a mirror for objects, without the senses interposing between it and its object. Thus the non-initiate is incapable of gaining freedom, because his mind, instead of being stable (still, non-fluctuating) is constantly violated by the activity of the senses, by the subconscious, and by the 'thrust for life'.
Reductionistic steps in the evolution of muga-mushin concept and application
- 7. Samkhya – Mystical Tradition
- 6. Yoga – First Level of Reduction. Note that the words 'mārga'/'dō' and 'yoga' are interchangeable.
- 5. Buddhism – Second Level of Reduction
- 4. Chan/Zen – Third Level of Reduction
- 3. Budō/Bujutsu – Fourth Level of Reduction – cultivation muga-mushin (revealed as heijō-shin).
- 2. Modern Kendo – Fifth Level of Reduction
- 1. Olympic sports – Sixth Level of Reduction – Combat sports as well as non-combat (baseball, basketball, swimming etc.)

Always new stuff to learn. Many thanks.
After some worthy sparring sessions, I ask the boys to recall what was the best shot they did during their match. Then I asked how they felt when they executed that shot. Then I let them re-visualize and savor that sensation while its still fresh in their minds. I dont know if there is any term in psychology or if its related to wushin or mushin, but I want to simply leave a positive imprint at the end of their training so as they approach the next with the same euphoric feeling and confidence.
