In society, we are put in numerous positions where we may feel uncomfortable. Whether it is doing a presentation in front of your manager or having to speak to a crowd, there are certain circumstances we dread. People tend to want to remain in their comfort zone, but life does not always work out that way. Having confidence in ourselves and in our abilities is crucial to becoming successful in society.
A few of the many benefits that students receive from Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim and Jung SuWon Martial Art Academy include learning to face our fears, having confidence in ourselves and learning to step out of our comfort zones. Through the martial arts training, students are not only learning to be stronger physically, but also mentally, emotionally and spiritually. At the Academy, training in the martial arts isn’t just about kicking or punching, but learning about internal strengths and weaknesses, developing self-confidence, self-esteem and courage, and much more. The instructors and teachers at Jung SuWon promote a positive environment that strives to form the next generation of leaders.
One of the current high school students who recently tested for his first Black Belt expressed some of the challenges he faced when he was much younger and how training at Jung SuWon Martial Art Academy has helped shape who he is today.
“One of my major struggles as a child was being shy and unconfident. Before I knew it, I was reciting the Jung SuWon Code of Ethics in front of the whole school during a belt testing event. I have been constantly tested on my self-confidence since. These moments in my training have shaped who I am today. Currently, I am the President of a club and an officer of another club, which puts me in a position to speak often. I know I couldn’t have done it without the practice in my training.” - Black Belt Testing Candidate, 16 years old
