Dr Tae Yun Kim ” Martial arts is a way of life”

Self Discovery as a Jung Su Won Warrior

Tae Yun Kim: “Martial arts in not just a sport. It’s a way of life, a way of living one’s life to its fullest potential”

The above is from an article in Tae Kwon Do magazine which Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim was the first female featured on the front cover.


“They are a way of life, a way of living one’s life to its fullest potential. They are ways of bringing harmony to your life through your body, mind and spirit – regardless of the circumstances around you”

“I Can’t Usually Means I Won’t”

Self Discovery as a Jung Su Won Warrior

In the  “The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within” Author “Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim” shares the following story.   This is one of my favorites as I am reminded daily in my life that “He Can Do, She Can Do, Why Not Me” and this story really speaks to me about the power of my thoughts, my attitude.

Page 35: ” Realize that I Can’t usually means I won’t”

“All of us, at some time or another,  have felt the limiting power of ” I can’t.” Even when we really want something, and even if that something is within our power, those two simple words can prevent it from happening. When you find yourself saying ” I can’t,” look deeper to see if you’re making another excuse. If you look honestly, you will usually find that your words “I can’t” actually mean “I could, but I won’t for…

cherriesLearn about the color “Red” in Author Dr. Tae Yun Kim’s “The First Element” book:

“Red stimulates and excites your nerves, pulse rate and blood circulation, and lends energy to your entire system.

Compassion, courage, and persistence are positive qualities associated with red; extreme passion & anger are more negative qualities. Food which helps impart vibration to you are plums, spinach, cherries, and radishes.”

Christmas Party at Jung SuWon

The Art of Jung SuWon

2017 is rapidly coming to an end which means it is holiday season. Christmas is right around the corner and then 2018 will be right here. Have you achieved the goals you set out for 2017? Do you know what your goals will be for 2018? Like our founder Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim talks about, we must have a “future memory”. The goal we have set is already achieved in our minds.

You Have a Conscious and a Subconscious Mind

Tae Yun Kim - Seven Steps to Inner Power

To understand where invisible thoughts come from, you must realize that you have a conscious mine (accessible to your immediate awareness) and a subconscious mind (outside of your immediate awareness).  The prefix “sub” means underneath; so by definition, you have thoughts and feelings “underneath” you conscious mind, which you are not aware of.  You are however, affected by these thoughts and feelings.  Although you are not aware of them, they still operate.
