We have been buzzing with all sorts of activity!  Never a dull moment at Jung Suwon, and that is how Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim likes it to be!  She wants to share her wisdom with people of all ages, and has always something going on!

We just had a most outstanding testing last Thursday, it was the Jung Suwon 28-year in California  anniversary!  The Dojang was packed, and for the first time ever Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim divided up the DoJang into 3 rings, for 3 testing groups to challenge themselves at the same time.  We’ll put up a lot more pictures and stories about that!

Last weekend our brave and valiant demo team went up to San Francisco to perform at the Korean Festival, right on Union Square.

Korean Festival

The place was packed, and a large, enthusiastic crowd gave support to the team.

And one of our purple belts, Luke Amador, dazzles with a fancy kick break routine, proving that no matter what age you are – you can achieve your goals!

At Jung Suwon, the demo team is not to show off a difficult skill, or just go to perform.  Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim allows students on the demo team not because they can pay money, or because they are so good.  No, at Jung Suwon, Our Great Grandmaster gives her students the opportunity to face their fears and anxieties and overcome them, to encourage them even more to become their best!

Stay in tune for more Jung Suwon updates, especially from the testing!

HE CAN DO, SHE CAN DO, WHY NOT ME!
