It has been along time since I posted.  Well, the last couple of years were some of the worst financial times in our history.  It felt like we were going through a war.  Looking back those are some of the hardest times, but they are also some of the most rewarding times.  All my martial arts training helped me keep a positive attitude, and to bring up my energy to fight back and survive.  We were in survival mode the last few years.  I am so grateful to the very intense training I have received from Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim.  She is powerful and intense and drives you hard.  Sometimes in workouts, I felt like I was going to drop.  But she knows her students limitations.  She knew I could take it and come out stronger.  I thought I would drop, but she knew that she had to take me to that limit to really find that true inner strength.  I am so grateful to Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim for that.  She is one of a kind.  She shouts out, "He can do, she can do, why not me!", and really means it.  She injects that indomitable spirit into each of us.  I am so fortunate to have become a student of my master.  If you ever find a good coach or good master instructor, do everything you can to learn, and then try to help others.  This type of knowledge can't really be passed on by reading.  You have to train hard and earn it.  You can read the words, but to feel it and experience it, you have to physically and mentally train hard to get those inner rewards.  On top of that, Dr. Tae Yun Kim has connected me more to God, and I have found God in my life.  Now I truly see and feel everything coming together.  God gave us great gifts to discover and use to help others.  I will now work the rest of my life to keep helping others, and to promote the training of Jung SuWon Martial Art Academy.   From the bottom of my heart - Thank you Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim for everything you have done for me and others.  You are God's gift to us.  You are a beautiful, wise and loving person.  Sincerely - thank you.
