No matter how good a martial artist you are, when your life is in danger, you will need to quickly tap into your inner power. Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim wrote a book on Seven Steps to Inner Power. It is a great book, that really inspired me to dive into who I am, and to take charge of my life. To be the master of my life, and to be the best I can be. Dr. Kim outlines the 7 Steps to Inner Power. I have read the book several times, and each time, I develop a deeper understanding. I used this energy to drive me to become a martial arts Grandmaster, and to be successful in my career. I used to read articles on people that were overachievers, but I didn't know how to get there myself. Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim connected me my inner spirit, and the knowledge that I am a co-creater. She taught me that my mind is stronger than I can imagine, and with the right thoughts, I can manifest my life and things around me. I can take control. What an awesome feeling.
Just like an Olympic athlete. You have to be able to set your sights high, and be ready to commit yourself to this goal. The same commitment is needed to become a very special martial artist. This needs to come from deep inside you. In your daily practice, you must practice tapping into this great source of energy. Workout hard, and learn meditation. Meditation at first is relaxing and makes you feel good. But advanced meditation takes you deeper into your soul and connects you with your inner power. And more advanced meditation allows you to manifest and use this power. Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim taught me all of this. Also, practice Ki-up'ing loudly. What you practice is what you will do in reality. You don't want to face your attacker with a soft sounding voice. You need to develop your energy. In advanced training, even your ki-up can stop an attacker. Don't under estimate your energy. Visualize yourself in a desperate situation. Typically when you really need this great source of energy, there is no planning. The connection needs to come from your subconscious. So learn to tap into this great source of energy, and use it to drive your techniques and purpose.
Don't let anyone rob your goals. Train hard and learn. Why not? Its all for you. :)
