Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim shares her personal challenges and experiences in her book, The Silent Master .
“My own life certainly has not been free of obstacles. To reach my goal of becoming a Grandmaster, I had to overcome the hardships of war and many centuries of limiting prejudice towards women living in the Orient.
Today, and every day, I still have many problems to overcome in continuing my work to train others in the art of Jung SuWon. One purpose of this book is to share with you the action steps that have helped me win my goals. I have never regarded defeat as an acceptable alternative. If defeat has any purpose, it is only to act as a guidepost, as feedback, while you keep moving toward your goal.
If you have tried before and failed try again! In this book I will be asking you to try it my way. I can only tell you that my principles have worked for me and worked for my students. If you are willing to take action, they will work for you too. I have included many action steps in this book to help you create your own path. Keep a pencil handy as you read, and give some of these exercises a chance. You can always go back to your way.
Remember that you are not alone. Like the single blade of grass, you are one with the Life Force of the universe, and you have the power and ability to fulfill your dreams. My greatest wish is to help you discover the true Love within you, and show you how to use It in creating a life of fulfillment, peace, and joy.”
