  • What is Moo Shim?

    Moo Shim is empty mind. This is a state in which one no longer thinks before they do something, the action is performed without thought. This is only possible when the mind and body are united as one unit which comes from many hours of training.

    For example, when you get into a car and drive somewhere that you have been to many times before, you don't think where to turn, when to stop, or when to go. You perform this action automatically without thought because your mind and body are one.

    Just think of all the things that you do with out thinking first. When you touch something hot you move your hand quickly; when something is thrown at you , you catch it or move out of the way; when you are walking and someone walking ahead of you stops, so do you. All of these things are done without thinking first. You can then consider Moo Shim (empty mind) action without thought.
