Martial arts is all about self-improvement in many different aspects of our lives. Whether we want to get in shape or become physically and mentally stronger, martial arts provides an opportunity to improve in these areas. The focus and discipline we apply to ourselves during training provides a means for self-improvement. One key attribute that Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim highlights is the importance of visualization during our martial arts training. It is important to identify what our goals are in our training and also in our personal lives. We may feel like we are only focusing on our physical body during training, but also we are working out our mental and emotional state. After training has ended, we feel more confidence, more energy and more focus. This can be applied to our personal lives and what we are striving for.

Throughout the martial arts training, we are reminded to focus on our goals. Also, we talk about focusing on our weaknesses, what we want to get rid of. Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim talks about how important it is to put these items into our consciousness and visualize achieving it or overcoming it. By doing this, we are building up our strength and our discipline to breakthrough. We should all visualize the goals we want to achieve and the steps and actions it takes to achieve it. We should also set goals for ourselves for the weaknesses we want to get rid of and start taking action to chip away at them.
