During a very special outdoor training and sparring session Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim taught me to “Let if flow” while sparring. 

We tend to think in a line.  My partner attacks and I block then I attack back then I wait for my partner to counter attack.  Neither of us are thinking past the present moment.

But when I ski down the mougle slope I am always looking 3-5 turns ahead of myself.  Perhaps I should be doing this in sparring also.  As my parnter is attacking I am now thinking way past the simple block and counter attack about to follow.  I am thinking about letting it flow continuously.  I am thinking several steps ahead of the present moment.

One way I can describe it is like a jet liner goes on auto-pilot.  It lets the computer maintain stability and keep the airliner level and moving forward on course.  The computer makes the minior adjustment along the way in realtime.  Similarly when I spar I need to move into this same realtime auto pilot mode and really let it flow.

When I did this time seemed to slow down and I felt my emotions relax and I felt calmer although I was actually moving faster!

Very amazing training experiences!

We are all so very fortunate to have our founder Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim sharing these inner Ki power training experiences with us.

Three cheers for Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim!
