Jung SuWon Testing is a time of Celebration, where students are tested not only in their physical abilities, but also in their spiritual energy and mental attitude.

In: Seven Steps to Inner Power, by Author Tae Yun Kim, pages 79-80

Pg 79, Jung SuWon Physical Training

“Your mind and body are one. Therefore, when you practice the Jung SuWon physical forms along with the seven mental and spiritual principles, you develop your whole being, not your mind only, not your body only.”

Pg 80, Physical Training is Overcoming Limitation

“Certainly, increased physical strength and the knowledge of self-defense are desirable rewards of Jung SuWon martial art training; they reduce fear and weakness and build true confidence and self esteem.  The quality of physical training in Jung SuWon depends directly on the extent to which the spiritual training is applied.

Training in the physical form of Jung SuWon requires that you focus all these ideas within the parameters of this structured art form and that you develop yourself and measure your progress in a disciplined manner (such as during a Jung SuWon Testing).  Your training, then, can be a feedback system, letting you know where you stand in taking control of your mind and body.”

She teaches us about the spirit of never giving up and pushing through obstacles with grit and determination. During the testing cycle, these traits were demonstrated by the students as they persevered through forms, sparring and breakings. Also during our regular classes, we learn about meditation and remaining calm. During the…
