Fudoshin translates as the immovable mind. It is a state of complete composure and fearlessness. It is the unshakable spirit that is able to surmount every obstacle that comes in its path. Under stress the mind cannot be disturbed by confusion, fear, doubt, or hesitation. It is this feeling that we are trying to foster, explore, and understand.
