Zan·shin, (残心), is a martial art term used in Japanese martial arts and Ninjutsu, referring to a state of awareness - a state of relaxed alertness. The literal translation is remaining mind.

In AKBAN's Ninjutsu this refers to the actual practice and body posture.

At the Yellow belt level a practitioner is reminded to maintain body posture, this indicating alertness to opponent and surrounding conditions. Later this mentally alert and clear state flows into regular life outside the dojo.
