When I first saw Braveheart, I was most impressed by the power of its battle sequences; after seven years, I am most impressed by the enduring power of its story. It is a great movie because it seriously argues that one man's lifelong personal experiences and struggle can make a difference, if not in the world then at least in the lives of others, it is a great movie because it is ultimately an inspiring story of perseverance in the face of considerable brutality and heartbreak, greatness because a thousand words are not adequate to express all of its emotional power and impact. I do not have the heart to give Braveheart less than a perfect score, even if I wished, because it is much more to me than mere entertainment...It is a constant reminder to me that I must never lose heart, to stand up for what one believes in, to be true to ones self.

Thank you Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim for standing up and fighting, when it would be so easy to run or compromise. You fight for what is right. You live your live with honor, love, and strength. To me, that is what life is all about. Thank you for your books and teachings, like "Seven Steps to Inner Power". It is an honor to be your student. :)
