Reappearance of the Do

Reappearance of the Do

Taekwon that is. Do is the-way. Tae is the foot, and kwon is the fist. These Korean words loosely translate to – the way of the foot and fist. The meaning of Taikwon-Do would be better explained by the great Grandmaster Suk Jun Kim, 9th Dan

“Taekwon-Do is a Korean unarmed martial art. It is not only kicking and punching but also a way of thinking and living. The main goal of Taekwon-Do is to achieve total mind and body control through training.”

But this article is about the reappearance of “the way” Why? When I was typing Grandmaster Kim’s words above an idea struck me very deeply. Specifically his words “a way of thinking and living.” For quite a number of years recently I have been working very hard to improve myself. And I have been slowly improving myself with improving my “way of thinking and living.” I believe the reappearance of Taekwon-Do in my life is to help me on my path to a better way of thinking and living.
