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.
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.
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.
