Unity & Teamwork in BATTLESHIP!


Have you seen the movie “Battleship” yet?

Pretty impressive for a movie based on a board game!

Exemplifying Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim‘s teachings!

This movie is all about UNITY & TEAMWORK.  It’s about not being selfish, self-serving and a loner.  It’s about Purpose, Focus & Determination.  It shows that it doesn’t matter how high tech or how modern a tool is, ANY tool can be used (in this case, an old Battleship) to reach your purpose & goal as long as everyone works together, no pride, no emotion.

From the beginning of the movie, Alex Hopper is arrogant, lazy and spoiled.  His life was spent mooching off his brother, who happened to be a commander in the U.S. Navy (go Navy!).

The movie demonstrated how Alex’s arrogant attitude was the source of his problems and got him into trouble time and time again.

But in the face of dire emergency, when all the lives in the world were at stake, Alex tempered his emotions and became a Team Player and through his humbleness and unity focus, they were able to defeat the more modern, more high tech alien invaders.

This is what Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim teaches: to have Unity, Teamwork, Loyalty, Humility, Focus, Determination…

These are all teachings that we learn at Jung SuWon Martial Art Academy.

Great Grandmaster Kim doesn’t go to the movies just to watch movies, but to see what we can learn from the movie itself.

When a movie has a great message, it makes that movie that more powerful and meaningful.  Even if a movie gets a “terrible” review from critics, it is the Message in the movie that is more important to my life as a Jung SuWon Warrior.

This is how Great Grandmaster Kim has been teaching me for the past 21 years.

I have had more purpose and meaning in my life for the past 21 years than in the previous 23 years before I started training.  Imagine that!  Instead of just wasting time every day, wondering what to do, wandering from here to there, I have focus, purpose and determination!  Even going to the movies is “class” in our University of Life!

I wouldn’t trade it for the world!
