I'm so excited and honored to be this year's Grand Marshal for the 45th anniversary of the LA Korean Festival!  If you are in the area, I would love to meet you!

Here is an excerpt from my book, SEVEN STEPS TO INNER POWER.  As you read through this, think about what it means to be one of a kind.  Does this help to shed any clarity on your life goals?    

Your Silent Master is your real self, your original self.  It expresses itself through your thinking, through true ideas and thoughts in your mind.  It is your eternal Selfhood that exists apart from your brain (which is a sensory processor only) and the personality traits imposed on you from your environment.

I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to live by the truth that you are one of a kind.  As a child in training under my martial arts master, I would be in tears as I told him how my family was treating me - how they were pounding negative messages into my ears every day, telling me I was no good, I was bad luck, I was a tomboy, I was a curse, I was a disaster, I was never going to be happy, I could never be a martial artist and I was crazy to even think like that.

No matter how much I wanted to get angry and fight when I heard those words, my master would say to me: "Just remember: You are one of a kind.  You are not your mother and you are not your grandmother.  Do not let their opinions or judgments or ideas affect who you can be, because you are not them.  You are unique.  Your mother has copied her lifestyle from your grandmother, as she was taught to do.  You say you want to become a practitioner of the martial arts - even a teacher.  No woman has ever done that.  So you need to accept that you are one of a kind and acknowledge it.  You need to believe that's who you are before you can convince anyone else."  He encouraged me to affirm that truth over and over.

Now it is my turn to tell you:  I know who you are. Now you have to know who you are.  You are one of a kind.  You are not just someone's son or daughter, brother or sister, mother or father.  You're not just an employee or manager at such and such a company.  We've all heard about people who lose their job or break up with their boyfriend or girlfriend and then lash out violently at others or even want to commit suicide because they believe their life is now finished.  Have you ever felt that way yourself?  Remember, your job, your relationships, what other people say about you is not who you are.  If someone doesn't appreciate who you are, you are still one of a kind with unlimited opportunity and potential.  No one can take that away from you - unless you allow them to.

Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim offers Private Classes in California and Oregon!

Jung SuWon Martial Art Academy provides many different programs! Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim and Master Instructors offer private classes in both California and Oregon. These classes are very popular in the surrounding cities like Medford, Oregon; Applegate, Oregon; Jacksonville, Oregon; Central Point, Oregon; Grants Pass, Oregon, and Fremont, California; Milpitas, California; San Jose, California; Cupertino, Silicon Valley California; and more!

What is a Private Class?

It is a one-on-one session for students who want to further their training by focusing on a specific technique, form or sparring.  Private classes are designed so that the student will receive immediate feedback and advice on how to improve, which helps accelerates the students training. One private class is equivalent to about a week’s worth of regular classes because of the student-teacher ratio.

                    

One of the students who recently took private classes shares how she learned to better visualize her target.  Before, she was striking with her techniques aimlessly, now she is exercising the power of visualization with every technique that she does and it’s helping her to direct her energy toward her target or goal.  Her focus at work and home has improved, she can see her goals clearly and she knows how to achieve them.

Why is visualization important?  Dr. Tae Yun Kim writes in one of her books, Seven Steps to Inner Power, “Visualization is the process of forming a mental image.” and “It is an immaterial activity that takes form first as a mental image, then as a material image.”  So, as students focus on their physical techniques, they are also visualizing their goals.  “No matter what goals you are aiming for in your life, visualization is an essential tool to achieving them.”  Dr. Kim’s words are based on nearly 70 years of experience and application.

Learn more about visualization! Can you visualize your goal and your dreams? Are you ready to make it happen? You can gain many insights and lessons through private classes offered at Jung SuWon!

 

Here is an excerpt from my book, SEVEN STEPS TO INNER POWER, where I discuss the topic of how to free our minds from limitations: 

While the art of Jung SuWon includes a physical form, it is more than a martial art.  It goes far beyond the hard martial art forms that are strictly of foot and fist, and it is not a sport.  Jung SuWon embraces principles and practices that help you develop your whole being - body, mind, and spirit.  Its mental and spiritual aspects are not separate from its physical form.

Tae Yun Kim

Let me give you a quick example.  In the martial arts, powerful kicks and punches are worthless unless they are properly directed at an appropriate target with the necessary mental focus.  In other words, physical strength is only as good as mental strength.  All the physical strength in the world will not help if your mind is full of fear.  As students practice, they identify what weaknesses are holding them back.  They learn to fight to free themselves from those limitations so they can express their innate power.  As they cultivate determination, confidence, and strength in practicing martial arts, they also apply those same qualities to the challenges in their daily lives.  They are learning to free themselves from whatever is holding their dreams and their future hostage.

Tae Yun Kim

The same principles hold true for you in your everyday life.  You must learn to conquer fear and weakness within you before you can overcome any foe or obstacle outside of yourself.  You must fight for your freedom.  Thus, the purpose of the art of Jung SuWon is to give you practical tools to free yourself from limiting, self-defeating states of mind.

Dr. Tae Yun Kim Quotes

"Sacrifice

 When you have a goal that is a priority, and when you commit your total loyalty to this cause, you will undoubtedly make decisions about competing priorities in your life.

Remember the example of preparing to train for a marathon race? Attending every party in town could not be an equal priority to working out every day. One or the other must be chosen, the other sacrificed.

When your Silent Master gives you a desire, It will never ask you to sacrifice something you need. That is contrary to Its nature of love. When you find yourself at a crossroads and you must make a choice, look closely to see if the so called sacrifice is really a loss. Usually, the things we give up to achieve a goal are no longer needed or are unworthy of keeping. If you give up laziness to keep your workout schedule, is that a loss? If you give up fear while learning something new, is that a loss? If you give up smoking to train for the race, is that a loss?

When we discussed increase and decrease with the yin-yang symbol, we said that every decrease (the black yin area) carries with it the seed of some new increase (the white dot in the black). Decrease is destined to turn into increase. So, even a real sacrifice is not ever really a loss. It is preparation for a new condition.

Many times it appears we are forced into a crossroads situation and we have to make a choice, a sacrifice. Sometimes, however, we can freely and willingly sacrifice certain states of mind to make room for the new.

The word “sacrifice” is derived from the Latin words sacer, meaning holy, and facer, meaning “to make.” Sacrifice means “to make holy.” So, when you sacrifice your weaknesses, fears, and limitations, you’re actually loving yourself, making yourself holy by expressing your truth and purity This is a joyful, expanding process, no matter how painful it may appear on the surface.

Sacrifice leads to patience."

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

"Loyalty is a supreme act of love. Suppose you had a friend who gave you money when you were out of work, gave you a place to live when you had no home, saved your life when you were in trouble, told you to call anytime you needed help. Is this friend worthy of your loyalty? If one day this person asked you for your support, wouldn’t you gladly give it, even if it involved some kind of sacrifice on your part? Most likely, you would do anything you could for this friend. Your loyalty would know no bounds.

If this is what you would do for a friend, how about your Self? What are you willing to do for it? Aren’t you deserving of your own loyalty? How much loyalty are you willing to show your Silent Master, the infinite part of you constantly standing ready, like a friend, to give you everything?

Your Silent Master knows Its worth and value, knows It deserves all your love, energy, support—and loyalty. It knows It is truth, purity, and love—your truth, purity, and love. Thus, loyalty to your Silent Master is putting your real self forward with confidence, conviction, determination, purpose, power, and love. Show your loyalty! And as you do, you move as One with your Silent Master.

Loyalty leads to Sacrifice."

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

"Loyalty

 Why does love lead to loyalty?

 Love is its own reward. The wonderful feeling of love generated from expressing your real self naturally leads you to value your real self even more. Then, the more you value your real self, the more you love. This momentum of love is the essence of loyalty, so loyalty is the result of perpetuating, reinforcing, and expressing your real self by loving it.

 And how do you love yourself? By being your real self. There is no greater way to love your real self than by being It. That is loyalty.

 Here’s an interesting thought you may not be aware of. The word “loyal” is derived from the Latin word legalis, which means “legal.” Thus, loyal includes the meaning of legal, which means “bound by law.” So, when you are loyal to your real self, when you are loyal to true and pure ideas about yourself, you invite the law of manifestation to operate and bring forth your real self. Loyalty is an act of acknowledging this law, an act of recognizing that whatever you are mentally loyal to is bound to take form.

 Loyalty, then, is a lot like gratitude because they are both acts of recognizing or acknowledging an idea. Whatever you’re loyal to, you recognize. Whatever you recognize, you think about. Whatever you think recognize, you think about. Whatever you think about, you manifest.

 If you act with your body and mind as one, if you know the truth about yourself, if you express purity and love, you have done much to achieve your goal. It is at this point you must exercise loyalty to your cause so you bring your vision to completion, so you do not give up, turn back, regress, or undermine yourself."

 Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

"Experiencing gratitude is a simple way to connect with the love imparted to you and every idea in the universe. The direct experience of the consciousness of love is gratitude. Gratitude is the process of recognizing what is true. Gratitude is an act of awareness. Without awareness, there is no recognition of anything and, therefore, no love of anything.

 I’ll give you a small example of what I mean. Once I was driving west along the highway into a magnificent sunset. The entire sky was seemingly on fire with flames amazingly bright, burning colors: purple, orange, red, yellow, blue, pink. I’d never seen so many colors in one place. Finding my vision restricted by the car windows, I pulled over and got out so I could have a full view of this incredible sunset. After a few moments I began to notice cars rushing by. Some were filled with people talking to each other, in another a man was using his car phone, in another someone was trying to read a paper while keeping one eye on the road. I was puzzled because not everyone was aware of the magnificent sight in front of them. Most people seemed distracted in one way or another.

 I was reminded of the power of gratitude. The feelings I experienced with the sunset—the great peace, joy, appreciation, and love that welled up—seemed to exist only for me at that moment. Of course, this sunset offered the opportunity for wonderful feelings to everyone else driving on this road as well, but only those who were willing to acknowledge the sunset, to make a conscious recognition of its presence, would feel the impact of its beauty. That is gratitude. Gratitude is the act of recognizing an idea or a quality; and when you do so, you identify with it."

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

"Love

Before you can express love, you must find love. You must know love within yourself before can express it. You must love yourself before you can give it to another.

 When you recognize or experience the truth about yourself you automatically feel love, because love is a quality of your true consciousness and true ideas.

Remember what we said of your Silent Master Consciousness:

IMAGE VI

Your Silent Master

expresses completeness,

fulfillment, harmony,

peace, joy, and Love,

and imparts these

qualities to everything

It creates.

Thus, when you express purity—which is the truth about yourself, your Silent Master Consciousness—you feel a love for yourself that is expressed by self respect, self esteem, and self confidence.

 Love, and all the feelings of love, come with recognizing what is true about you and everything around you."

 Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

"Continue for yourself, now. Ask, What idea is lacking when I feel sorrow? When I feel shy? When I feel anger? When I feel jealous? Go down your personal list and fill these voids with the pure ideas belonging to your Real Self.

Doesn’t a healthy immune system operate on the principle of constantly distinguishing between self and not self, and then eliminating what is not self? Your mental immune system is your mental purity, the constant attention you give to which thoughts are Self (the Silent Master) and which are not Self (negative and limited). When you express purity, you express the pure power and knowing of your Silent Master. You express your Real Self!"

 Purity leads to Love.
