Jung SuWon’s 111th Belt Testing

June 25, 2017

The Art of Jung SuWon

Jung SuWon Martial Arts Academy’s Belt Testing provides a series of challenges to test a student’s determination, focus and perseverance. Many of the color belts had the opportunity to test for this testing cycle and they performed very well. Continuous training on the dojang floor paid off for these students as they were able to execute their techniques and perform. Forms required endurance, sparring required determination and breaking the boards required focus and perseverance.

Our founder Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim teaches her students about overcoming challenges in their lives. During testing, we go through many different thoughts and emotions. We go through struggles that test our determination and our perseverance. However, Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim instills in her students the will and the grit to overcome our challenges and our fears. All of the students were able to overcome their challenges and break through.

Congratulations to all of…

Jung SuWon’s 110th Belt Testing

April 1, 2017

The Art of Jung SuWon

Jung SuWon Martial Arts Academy recently had our 110th Belt Testing Cycle. There were students of various color ranks testing to obtain their next belt rank. The students were nervous and anxious, but this is an opportunity for them to display what they have learned through their training. It is a testing of not only the physical aspects, but also the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects.

Our founder Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim teaches us about ki energy and power from within. We have an energy force within us that we can tap into that acts as a generator. 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…

The meaning of the name “Jung SuWon”

February 13, 2017

The Art of Jung SuWon

Jung SuWon” means the uniting ofbody, mind and spirit in total harmony

The example/story that I try to help students understand the meaning of Jung SuWon training goes like this:  When you are sitting at home with your school books open trying to do your homework but your mind is elsewhere maybe thinking of having a good time with your friends… ask yourself “am I getting my school work done effectively”.  The answer will be a resounding “No”.  Then when you are out with your friends at the mall having a good time but deep in the back of your head you are saying to yourself… bummer I still have not done my homework… ask yourself am I really having a good time with my friends? 

In both of these situations our body and mind are in different places.  The solution is to put your body and mind…

Learning Coordination and Utilizing Our Bodies

February 13, 2017

The Art of Jung SuWon

The physical aspects of martial arts training isn’t only about kicking and punching. We also learn more about how to utilize our body and learning about the mechanics and coordination of our bodies. This requires lots of practice to become good at it and this requires different methods of working out our body with lots of repetition.  At Jung SuWon Martial Arts Academy, we work on different exercises that help us refine our coordination and our abilities.

For the regular classes, we practiced a fun activity that all of the students can enjoy. We were practicing our coordination by jumping back and forth above a belt. As we succeed in one particular height, we would elevate the belt to a higher height. This helps us to challenge ourselves as the belt height gradually becomes higher.

This is a fun and exciting way for us to challenge ourselves and our bodies. We…

Special Training under Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim

After several trans-continental flights I am finally settled back in to “regular” schedules.  This means, back in Jung Suwon classes, and now that Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim is finally back from her 2 1/2 month stay in Korea, classes have been rocking!

Here is me, back at Jung Suwon, in action:

And here, I get to work with our youngest Jung Suwon warrior, who is 3 proud years old!  He is full of energy and spunk, and doesn’t know fear.  Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim allows kids to train at a very early age, because they are able to learn and absorb at a much faster rate, regardless of how they act and regardless of their physical coordination.

Just take a look at how great Joshi does:

Healthy Foods Inspired by Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim

2013-01-08 21.59.43

So, you would think that right after Christmas I wouldn’t want to bake any more cookies.  However, since simply didn’t have time for cookies during Christmas, I really wanted to catch up on the unbaked cookies, waiting to happen.

Besides, Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim, just recently returned from 2 months in Korea, always emphasizes that we determine when there is a season – let the season serve you, don’t become a slave to it.  Just because Christmas is usually December 25th – if your circumstances prevent you from celebrating on that date, why not do it another day?  Isn’t that the very message of Christmas?

So, here I was, looking at 2 recipes for chocolate chip cookies, undecided which one to bake, when a bunch of Jung Suwon demo team members stormed into the kitchen.  “What are you gonna bake?” they wanted to know.  When I told them…

 Dr. Tae Yun Kim, 김태연 회장님 , founder of Lighthouse worldwide solutions, 10th degree Tae Kwon Do Great Grandmaster, and founder of Jung SuWon Martial Arts was invited to speak yesterday at one of the top-top high schools in Seoul, South Korea – DongSan Christian High School.

The students are under a lot of pressure there because first it is very hard to be accepted into this high school – it is very competitive – and then it is very competitive there to get good grades. Almost the whole huge audience was students – and they really ‘got’ Dr. Kim’s message and were in awe of the Jung Suwon Demo team! They chanted (the whole audience!) “Kim Tae Yun! Kim Tae Yun!” and “He Can do! She can do! Why not me!” over and over!

Watching Dr. Kim speak to the high school students, motivate and inspire them…
