The Importance of Regular Practice

  “Practice makes perfect” is a very famous quote we hear a lot when we enjoy our hobbies or practicing activities like: swimming, basketball, fitness, training at Jung SuWon, learning math, reading, and many other related areas! However, through my training with Great Grandmaster Dr. Tae Yun Kim, I have found this quote to be applicable to literally everything! For example, I was a very shy person. It was hard for me to approach others, start a conversation, and draw relationships between each other. I was an introverted person.

We work, fight and strive to have an easy life. We do our best to simplify life so we can live comfortably. If something is out of place or if it is something we are not willing to try, we reject it and make sure it has nothing to do with our life! Great Grandmaster Dr. Tae Yun Kim taught me the importance of embracing challenge in my life. She provides me with real-life experiences and examples every day! As an instructor and playing the role as a manager of Jung SuWon Martial Art Academy, I am constantly working with...
