At Jung Suwon, every body part can be used to your advantage!

I know I have been saying it over and over again, but its simply true, that classes at Jung Suwon are exciting, and never the same.  I really like that.  Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim remembers, that when she started training many decades ago, all she was allowed to do for the first three months was middle punch.  That’s it!  Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim also says that when she opened her first Martial Arts school in the USA, in Vermont, she kept losing students because they wanted excitement, not depth of training, not self development!  After a week of only “horse riding stance, middle punch” they never came back!

Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim is very radical, and understands that in order to reach people, you have to adjust to the times.  So now, at Jung Suwon, Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim teaches a greater variety of techniques, but still maintains the high standards of Jung Suwon.  There is no easy way to earn your next rank at Jung Suwon, in fact, Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim challenges us incredibly!

Last weekend we had something totally unexpected happen:  Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim met all the black belts and Masters at Jung Suwon, and had us learn a most unusual breaking technique, something I call “reverse headbreak!”

This is what it looks like:

And no, I didn’t do this technique, although I was so tempted – when on coumadin, you don’t go use your head for this kind of activity.  But, I was in Jung Suwon Class, busy filming and taking pictures!
