“Self-discovery means learning to live free!”
Tae Yun Kim, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within

This is one one my favorite quotes from my mentor and teacher, Dr. Tae Yun Kim.  It reminds me, like the little flower in the picture above, to not accept limitations that society puts on me, and especially not give into limitations that I that I put on myself. Dr. Kim is a constant inspiration – she has lived this quote and her motto, “He can do, she can do, why not me!” her whole life by overcoming, not just Korean culture, which at her birth in 1946 in South Korea labeled her bad luck and curse for being a first born girl, but also prejudice against women succeeding in martial arts, and later in business. When ever I have a tough day I remember the example she sets in her life, and it motivates me to keep going, I can do it, and to never give up!

About H.Chamberlain

I am Sr. Software engineer at Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions, and a black belt at Jung SuWon Martial Art Academy. I have been lucky to train for almost 20 years under 10th Dan, Great Grandmaster Dr. Tae Yun Kim. Before I started training I felt so lost and empty inside. I was 25 years old and didn't know what my life was supposed to be or what I was supposed to do with it. Not feeling purpose in my life, I felt just grey and like I was drifting. Then life took some unexpected turns but what could have been one of the toughest times in my life turned out to be the point where I changed my life for the better through what Dr. Kim teaches and training at Jung Suwon Martial Arts.Yahoo! I thank God for an awesome life!
