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!

 

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 times when you had an intuition and didn't act on it.  Did the intuition turn out to be correct?    

I said earlier that your Silent Master knows when a yin or yang action is called for to create balance.  Yet, how often do we find ourselves making the wrong move, increasing discord rather than eliminating it?  You may even have had moments when you said, "If only I had listened to myself, I wouldn't have done that."  You were probably right.  You may not be aware of it, but your Silent Master speaks to you very quietly at times through the faculty we call intuition.

 

When you have an intuition, it feels like an impulse to say or do something that suddenly pops into your conscious mind.  Generally, an intuition will feel like a right choice and will bring you a sense of serenity or peaceful resolution (even if you may not have wanted to do it.)  It may feel vague, as if it's not really your own thought, but it is.

This inner "voice" is actually your inner knowing.  It is your Silent Master's knowing attempting to penetrate your consciousness with its truth.  It does not necessarily speak softly; it only appears to do so because your surface thoughts and emotions noisily clamor for so much attention.  Clearly, if you could consistently be aware of these leadings from your Silent Master, you could make the right moves at the right time.

How can you develop greater awareness of this supremely intelligent, quiet voice?  Ideally, your awareness should be like a pool of still water.  Light travels easily into still water, enabling you to see right into the water.  However, when the wind blows and the water is agitated or when the water is polluted, you can't see clearly what's in it.  The same is true of our minds.  You can make your mind like a pool of still, clean water, undisturbed by turbulent surface thoughts, free from polluting feelings and emotions, so that the light of your Silent Master can travel easily into your awareness.

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

When you consciously connect with your breathing, you are consciously connecting with your life force. Your breathing directly connects you to your inner power. When you take control of your breathing, you take control of your inner power in a general way. That's why women in childbirth learn breathing techniques to help them control the process and dissipate pain.

Your body processes, your thoughts and emotions, all respond to changes in your breathing. Thus, you can alter your mental and emotional state by altering your breathing. Have you noticed that when you're deep in thought, focused, concentrating intensely on something, your breathing is deep and slow? When you are anxious and excited your breathing is shallow and fast paced. When you're shocked, frightened or extremely angry, your breathing may actually stop momentarily. If, when you're in a state of shock, fear, anger, or anxiety, you can deliberately take control of your breathing and slow it down your mental or emotional state will start to calm down. That's why I ask you to start your formal meditations by deliberately slowing your breathing. In this way, you're taking control of your mind, and encouraging it to form the calm, focused, receptive state necessary to begin the meditation.

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Who Am I?

"Who am I? Remember, you are asking for something incredibly simple, really, something profoundly natural, something as close as your own being, yet something as infinite as the universe. Your Silent Master knows this question, and knows the answer. Now you, through your meditation, can also begin to know, to “make real” your unity with your Silent Master.

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Meditation requires patient listening

This meditation requires much repetition and patient listening. The understanding that results from it often doesn’t happen all at once. The growing awareness can be so subtle that you don’t realize you’re getting it until you have it."

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Saluting/honoring the flags

"When you honor a country’s flag, you honor the spirit of the nation. We could say that a flag is the face of the people, a symbol representing each individual who with many others form the spirit of the country. So, in the dojang, when you honor your country’s flag, or another person, you honor yourself and the self in others who create the nation.

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Bowing shows respect for yourself and your opponent

And all gestures of courtesy and respect (such as bowing) honor the self in others in a most tangible and peaceful manner.

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Traditional or a "Rebirth" Bow

If you wish, you may regard your physical martial arts training as a comprehensive symbol of your life training. The mental and physical overcoming and strengthening that you demonstrate in the dojang represents the same overcoming in every other aspect of your life as well.

So, in martial arts training, we value symbols because it is a way to observe the real ideas the symbols represent."

"Physical Training Is Observing Reality

 Physical Training Is Observing Reality

Even if there were no martial arts systems in existence, we could still learn much about the valuable traits developed by these systems, like survival, self defense, courage, discipline, and patience, just by watching nature. It’s not by accident that many martial art forms incorporate the qualities of animals: the tiger, eagle, crane, bear, turtle, monkey. The original martial arts masters observed valuable traits in these animals then imitated them to extend their fighting skills.

 Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

You may not be able to go directly to nature to learn basic truths and primal ideals embodied by nature’s creatures; we do not live in nature the way people did thousands of years ago. So you, the modem warrior, may have to imitate others who have learned the way before you. However, you will still need to observe as much as the original warriors did. Your ability to observe is a powerful, essential weapon in self defense."

 Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

You may become keenly aware of your weakness and negative thoughts and emotions as you train in a martial art because you’re making greater demands on your body and asking yourself to perform in ways you previously considered impossible. But keep in mind, as we discussed in the section on Purity in chapter four, that your weaknesses are “shadows” of your real characteristics. The war against a shadow does not have to be waged with force. It’s not sensible to fight against something that’s insubstantial, is it?

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Instead, the war can be won by gently embodying the real idea about yourself, whatever it may be at the time.

“Gently” doesn’t mean “weakly,” however. Gentleness is its own kind of force. Remember the fable about the contest between the Sun and the Wind? They each tested their power by attempting to make a man walking along a road take off his cloak. As the wind ripped and tore at the man with tremendous force, the man only drew the cloak tighter and tighter around him, until the Wind finally gave up and challenged the Sun. The Sun, however, showed no “force” at all; gently and persistently, it burned brighter and hotter, until the man released his hold on the cloak and took it off in the warmth of the day. This is the true nature of your conflict with yourself. Like the Sun, gently and persistently you must be who you are in truth.

 Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Also during your warfare, remember what we discussed in the section on Truth in chapter four: To make your work easier, you must remain unimpressed with the evidence of your material senses. The material picture outside you is never the source of truth; it is a picture of what you've been believing to be true.  Therefore, as a Jung SuWon warrior, you are not limited by any material evidence; you can change the picture when you change your thinking.

You are not limited.

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Second, the saying means that the spiritual principles of Jung SuWon are practical. When you use the principles, practice them, and apply them to the physical training, you discover that these principles are the foundation for your physical power. So, Jung SuWon is not just theoretical. It is to help you do whatever you need to do. “He can do, she can do, why not me?” And you can apply the principles to any situation in your life, not only in the school where you practice the physical martial art.

 Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

So, the foundation for your physical doing in Jung SuWon is the mental and spiritual training. Your physical strength is only as good as your mental strength. Powerful kicks and punches are worthless unless they are properly directed at an appropriate target, with the necessary mental focus. But all the physical strength in the world will not help if your mind is full of fear. Therefore, you must conquer fear and weakness within yourself before you can conquer a foe outside yourself. This is the purpose and essence of the Jung SuWon spiritual principles: to give you practical tools to free yourself from limiting, self defeating states of mind. And it works!

Dr. Tae Yun Kim Quotes

"Physical Training Is Overcoming Limitation

 Dr. Tae Yun Kim Quotes

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. Tae Kwon Do, Shotokan Karate, and Kung Fu are all similar in the origins of their basic forms. But the quality of physical training in Jung SuWon depends directly on the extent to which the spiritual training is applied. Learning the martial art moves and forms, learning how to spar effectively with an opponent, and demonstrating extraordinary physical feats (breaking bricks with your bare hand) require that you use all the principles of awareness, balance, visualization, commitment—all the rules of mental conduct—as well as the seven principles of inner power.

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. Your training, then, can be a feedback system, letting you know where you stand in taking control of your mind and body."
