Truth of Taekwondo Be Both Right and Strong   
 
 

"I think I'm still deficient."

"What would be the difference between sufficiency and deficiency?"


 

Taekwondo permeates your inside through training and your life through yourself. To the contrary, the entirety of daily life forms you, who also determine the momentary Taekwondo. Taekwondo is both a part of life and a way of life at once. Therefore, the moment of facing your opponent always lies hidden in your daily life, which is again condensed in a moment. A moment is not separated from the eternity.

Taekwondo and life permeate each other erasing their distinctions just as everything has no distinction originally. In its origin, every thought comes from action and intention to act, and it is composed of words and logic. Words and logic always include names, which inevitably rely on distinctions over things. Here you can find the limit of word and logic. This distinction breaks the harmony, the perfect harmony of the world and you. If a truth were to include the real figure of things it must be beyond those distinctions, so it cannot be said in words. The word is nothing but a sort of tool.

TAEKWONDO plunges into the being itself with no word but as action. And it says no distinction of this and that. Taekwondo man does not face the world in words but enter it to be overlapped. That is, he meets and touches beings at first hand. Thus, he accepts everything as it is. Therefore, the ultimate truth of Taekwondo can only be felt and experienced while it cannot be said and analyzed completely. The truth of Taekwondo, which is beyond distinction, cannot be explained in words but delivered directly from mind to mind.

You should empty everything of yours in order to destroy the wall between minds accepting everything in impartial mind. Then all of attachments and negations will be emptied together. This is giving up everything of yours to get TAEKWONDO. What vice could break into this? Therefore, it is so impossible for a truly vicious man to reach the ultimate truth of Taekwondo as has been told in most instructive stories. For the vice is an attachment or avarice to something trivial, so it is a contradiction confused in closed mind. The true should be the strong. Therefore, if there were an ultimate truth it should be both right and strong for man. The truth of Taekwondo is such thing. Taekwondo is by itself such an entirety as is life originally.
