A: Patches on the uniform: The Sun Soo Tae Kwon Do patch goes on the student’s left (viewer’s right) and the JTF (Jun Tong Taekwon-Do Federation) patch goes on the student’s right (viewer’s left). Patches are to be sewn on the uniform prior to the first testing for each student.

The Martial Arts are often misrepresented and misunderstood — as aggressive, excessive and egocentric by media “stars”, — as sloppy, silly or seeming to lack larger meaning by many students and instructors inadequately taught or driven by selfish agendas. Practiced to their potential however, martial arts offer a vehicle to a rich, balanced and connected world!
The ultimate goal of a true martial artist is to be a giver – a contribution to the context that he/she is operating in. So, let’s work backward from here. In order to be a contribution, one must be capable. And capability grows from awareness … of everything…
So, increasing our awareness is the first step in the process — that ultimately leads to a better world!
Now, while jumping to a BETTER WORLD may be too big a step for many of us – “too much to wrap our brains around” – “can’t get there from here”… all of us can get our heads around increasing our awareness – especially if we start with small accessible steps. One of the most effective ways to increase our awareness is to increase what we notice. Following are a few simple twists we can make with familiar tasks and everyday situations to notice in new ways and increase our awareness:
use your less coordinated hand to accomplish ordinary tasks
chew food slowly and deliberately, noticing textures and flavors
breath deliberately and slowly – see how slowly you can make it
slow your heartbeat (through intention and concentration)
get dressed at half speed
Of course there are many others. See if you can think of a few twists of your own, as you try some of these. Through it all – notice what you notice… How much are you noticing that you never noticed before? Now that you notice these things, what else is possible for you to notice? Notice all that you can, and keep noticing – and as you do – your awareness will rise.
