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.

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, SEVEN STEPS TO INNER POWER. As you read through this, think about times when you may have felt your Silent Master.
Waiting quietly within you is a presence, a force, a state of consciousness that gives you the power to harmonize and change discordant situations, the power to create and to achieve goals. It gives you the power to experience peace and joy regardless of the circumstances around you - the power to be who you really are. In Jung SuWon, we refer to this presence within as the Silent Master or Silent Master Consciousness.
When you tap into the consciousness of the Silent Master within, you begin to take control of your life. You may have been drifting through life before; now you are driving through life and toward your goals. You experience a new sense of freedom, creativity, purpose, and peace of mind. You find yourself glad to be alive every day for the sheer pleasure of experiencing life - of experiencing yourself.
The keys from the art of Jung SuWon that you'll explore here will help you awaken to this powerful presence within and empower you to recognize and express the qualities of your Silent Master in your daily life. As you open to your true potential in this way, you'll discover more of your beauty, your strength, and your courage.
At the core of the philosophy I teach are six truths about your Silent Master. I call them "Silent Master images" and you'll understand why when you read the section on visualization, or, as I call it, "future memory." In essence, these images describe who you truly are and the awesome power you have within you now to shape your life. As you move through this book, you'll learn much more about these foundational concepts and how to put them into action in your life. Here I'll simply touch on these truths to give you a brief introduction to them. For now, think of each one as a seed-thought designed to blossom into a practical understanding of your true being and power as you contemplate "Who am I?" Give yourself complete freedom and permission to fall in love with who you are and you are becoming.
Here is an excerpt from my book, SEVEN STEPS TO INNER POWER, where I discuss the real you waiting to be unleashed:
Moving from a limited sense of self to tapping into the power of your unlimited self does require a change, and change can be frightening. If you want to live up to your full power and potential, however, you will have to change. When we've been sleeping in the dark, our eyes are used to the darkness. So when someone suddenly draws back the curtain and the daylight comes flooding in, don't we pull the covers over our head and moan, "Close that curtain! You're hurting my eyes!" The bright light causes discomfort at first, even pain, but that feeling eventually goes away. In the same way, your limited self may be accustomed to living in comfortable darkness. If you are willing to experience the initial discomfort that the light brings, you will soon grow accustomed to the brightness and see a whole new world illumined by the light.
As you open to a new way of seeing and being, new opportunities will come. Yes, challenges will come your way too - challenges within and without. That is part of life's journey. Yet, as we learn in the martial arts and as you'll see examples of in this book, you can use a force coming your way to your benefit. You can learn to ride the wave of those challenges to create greater growth, mastery, and overcoming. In fact, it is in facing those challenges that you will learn the most about yourself.
The way of the warrior on the path to inner power is to realize who you are in truth and to demonstrate it, a process of evolution that continues throughout your life. The work of the warrior is joyous and every encounter is an adventure. As a warrior, you know that the obstacles and limitations you confront are destined to fall because they were never a part of your real self.
No matter what challenges arise, you are never alone. Your inner strength is waiting for you right now. Your courage and creativity are waiting for you Your excitement and dedication and discipline are waiting for you. All these qualities and more are part of your support team, waiting to be unleashed. I know you may not be used to feeling that these qualities are a part of you, and you might have some fear about what your life will be like when you step out of your comfort zone. But I promise you that you will love the sense of freedom, peace, and purpose that comes when you meet who you really are. Are you ready to experience the real you?
Here is an excerpt from my book, SEVEN STEPS TO INNER POWER, where I discuss visualization:
A Powerful Tool for Turning Ideas into Form
As I sat in the fields and watched the moon flowers gently open at night, I was also amazed that, even in the moonlight, their color was beautiful. I remember having the thought that surely our ideas of color come from nature. I thought about how often people look at flowers or a beautiful sunset and want to imitate those colors somehow - in art, in clothing, in many ways. Isn't it interesting that the purity of nature, its original natural beauty, inspires us to capture it or duplicate it? Certainly, that is one form of visualization - reproducing in representative ways what we see in the world around us.
Although ideas seem quite invisible compare to moon flowers or sunsets, they are as real and inspiring. Aren't you just as excited by a wonderful new idea as you are to experience something rare and beautiful in nature? In the same way that the world of nature inspires us to imitate its beauty, so we are naturally impelled to capture the beauty of true ideas in material form.
Remember that the true ideas that come to you are coming from your Silent Master: "Your Silent Master is your real self, your original self. It expresses itself through your thinking, through true ideas and thoughts in your mind." Those ideas are the primal, original source of everything that manifests in visible form. In fact, the word idea is derived from the Greek root word that means "to see." So an idea automatically carries with it the concept of visibility. Haven't you noticed that when you understand an idea, you usually say, "I see." In our universe, we turn ideas into material form. Visualization is a powerful tool for doing so.
Visualization is the process of forming a mental image. The process of forming images in our mind is also called imagining, something most of us do with relative ease. The word image comes from the same Latin root as the word imitate. This means that when we form an image, we are imitating, or creating a likeness of, something else. That something else is an idea. All images, whether those you see outside yourself or those you see in your mind's eye, are visible duplications of some idea.
Here is an excerpt from my book, SEVEN STEPS TO INNER POWER, where I discuss the creative power of your words:
When you have let go of negative emotions during your shower meditation and are making your first impressions on the new day, be sure to use positive affirmations. Let your inner and outer dialogue with yourself be filled with positive declarations about your true self. Instead of saying, "I am not sad," be sure to affirm positives such as "I am full of the confidence and natural joy of my real self."
It's always important to consider the way we communicate and the words we use, whether in daily life, in our meditations or in our inner dialogue One of the most powerful avenues of expression your mind uses is your words. Consider for a moment how you think. Don't you generally "hear" yourself think? You express your ideas in words, words that either play in your mind or words you speak out loud.
Words have great creative power. Your words can tear someone down or inspire them to be a hero. Your words can spur someone to greater achievements or get them fired. Since words are the creative carriers of your mental energy, treat them with great respect and choose them carefully with all your heart. Be conscious of what you are saying. If you have to, pause before you speak. Careful means "full of care." I encourage you to send your words out with extreme care because with those words you can start World War III in your relationships. We've all had the experience of saying something we didn't mean and finding that the words, once released, go right ahead and have an effect, maybe one we didn't intend.
It's not so much the word itself that has an effect but the energy and vibration the word carries as you say it - your intent. The energy and intent you put behind your words makes all the difference. So when you're speaking to others as well as to yourself, examine what energy you are letting your words carry. Are you building up your ego in a selfish way that hurts others are are you boosting another's self-image? If a woman keeps telling her husband how stupid he is, he can start to believe that and decide that "if I can't do anything right, why bother trying at all?" In your dialogue with others and in your own inner dialogue, constantly reflect on whether you are paralyzing yourself and others or whether you are elevating yourself and others.
