"I Cannot Wait Until Tomorrow", is another powerful phrase in Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim's song call Universal Heart. The more time passes, the more I realize that there may not be a tomorrow. We have to train, and workout and be discipline towards our goals now. Live your life now! Do meaningful things now. Everything is constantly changing. The environment, your body, your situation, your finances, and more. You may have been able to take a vacation 2 years ago, but now with the recession there is no way. You might have been able to workout last year, but this year your knees hurt, and your body isn't cooperating. GGM Tae Yun Kim has always said that time is her greatest enemy, and now I am just starting to see and feel that myself. As I review my life, I have unknownly wasted many years, and that time is wasted for ever. It is a very expensive lesson. Don't let that happen to you. Take charge of your life. Add love and balance to your life. Be good and honorable to others.
At a recent Jung SuWon Belt Ceremony 3/14/2009, Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim led a most incredible event. Bringing up that "Can Do" Energy, and injecting it into the students and parents spirits. It was great to be a part of. I only wish more people could be part of that very special energy. I was watching the Super Nanny the other night. Many families have problems with their children's behavior, and yet when I see how well behaved the children at Jung SuWon are, I say to myself that all parents should know more about the children of Jung Suwon.
I was thinking more deeply about the passing of time and our responsibilities as instructors. We must help the children learn and grow into strong disciplined and confident people. As I see the younger students involved in good martial arts training, it helps build their bodies and minds. It helps shape them into better human beings. I feel and incredible feeling to help children more and to teach even more.
Remember your responsibility as a Jung SuWon Martial Arts Instructor is to make a postive difference in this world. With love and purpose in your heart, give each class and each student your very best. It is awesome to watch Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim do this. She is really good at teaching and inspiring people.

What happens when you get so busy, that you can't find time to workout anymore? What happens when your environment and situation dominate your time and your mindspace? What happens when you are in a financial crisis and it requires all your time to just survive? What happens when you look back and findout your you have gained 30 pounds and your health is slipping away?
This is not uncommon among people today. One thing that has always helped me is to go back to my roots as a martial arts student. When I was training, and when I was in shape, I was the happiest. My mind and body were on a high. I felt like I could conquer and overcome anything. Now is time my friend. Do whatever you can to get back in shape. Don't let others rob your health, and spirit and dreams.
I was remembering a great song that Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim taught me, Universal Heart. The first part is: "I have a dream and the will to follow, I am aware of the power in me. I can not wait until tomorrow. I must act now if I want to be free. ..." The drums are playing to it, and it is an energetic song. I can feel the power rising up inside.
If you never have heard the song go to the Jung SuWon Martial Academy to learn the martial arts and ask about the song. And then think about making your dreams come true. Don't let your dreams slip away. Or you can go to Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim's website, or the Jung SuWon Website, or Great Grandmaster's product website, called Northstar Productions.
Remember your dreams. You have the power within you. Do it now...!
