Byō-ki (n.) 1. A state of poor health. 2. In Budō, focus of concentration on one point, interrupting the natural flow of energy and spirit. (When a competitor loses fluidity by focusing only on winning the match, by concentrating too hard on the choice of techniques, or by being too tense, they will be too preoccupied to respond naturally.)[1]
