Master Yoo’s Training Guide – Part 1 | BENEFITS OF MEDITATION BEFORE AND AFTER MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING

1. Benefits of meditation before martial arts training

By meditating before martial arts training we are able to clear distractions and lead our consciousness into a single direction by receiving pure cosmic energy into the Baek Hoi.

This results in enhanced level of concentration. Meditation also awakens the energy of lower Dahn Jun by connecting solidified earth energy into the Yong Chun and, as result, resets the proper angle of our muscles and joints.

2.Benefits of meditation after martial arts training

Meditating after training helps to calm down brain waves and relieve excess body heat through the mouth and pores by repeating simple motions with corresponding breath work. In a short time the body temperature goes from being overheated to moderate. In addition, meditation improves circulation of the vertical energy channels (Im Maek and Dok Maek ),making the lower Dahn Jun warm and cooling down the brain (Su Seung Hwa Gaang).

<태권도 수련 전후의 명상의 효과>

1.수련 전의 명상의 효과

맑고 밝은 하늘기운을 우리의 뇌와 연결하여 대뇌의 산란한 생각을 정리하고 의식의 흐름을 한 곳으로 유도하여 집중력을 높인다. 또한 무겁고 응축된 땅의 기운을 발바닥의 용천과 연결하여 하단전의 기운을 일깨워 근육과 골격을 바로 세운다.

2.수련 후의 명상의 효과

편안한 동작을 호흡과 일치시켜 반복함으로써 뇌파를 안정시키고 입과 땀구멍을 통해 과도하게 높혀진 체내의 열기를 배출시켜 인체의 적정온도에도달할 수 있도록 유도한다. 또한 인체의 수직경락( 임맥과독맥 ) 의 유통을 진전시켜 하단전을 따뜻하게 하고 머리는 시원하게 한다

Essential elements to become Leaders are SVA Smile + Voice + Action= SVA

Essential elements to become Leaders are SVA
Smile + Voice + Action= SVA

Taekwondo leader

Smile Energy – This is more than just smiling.  It means keeping a positive attitude even in difficult conditions.  Smile helps to release fear and grow confidence.

Voice Energy – Sound is one of the fundamental energies of the universe.  Having a strong, confident voice when teaching, answering and speaking builds your own confidence and inspires those around you.  A proper healthy sound helps to open one’s mind.

Action Energy – Taking positive action steps to do whatever is needed to help others.  This can be anything, such as standing and running right away to people who need help and taking action right away if you think the action is good to do, or helpful.  More action brings us self-trust.

Meaning of Jeol(=bow)

‘Jeol’ is a expression of both ‘저:Jeo(My)’ and ‘얼:Eol(Spirit)’.
A ‘Jeol’, which is expressed from a healthy body and a bright mind, is not only beautiful and noble, but also delivers a communication with mother nature.
Depend on mental states of person, ‘Jeol’ can be expressed whether beautifully or perversely.
When a person ‘Jeol’ on one’s opposite, it is a gesture of respect for human beings.
On the other hand, if a person ‘Jeol’ in front of nobody, this person expresses his or her gratitude to the other human being or mother nature through spiritual connection.
Accordingly, we can persue harmony with the others and mother nature through proper ‘Jeol’ that makes energy filled with respect and gratitude.
