Inner Strength



Link Your Mind & Body


Dear Friends I want to discuss a common terminology in the Martial Arts. In Korean Based Martial Arts such as ours, Choong Shim Do, there are three efforts Weh Gung “Outer Effort” Relating to physical training Muscles, bones, tendons etc Neh Gung “Inner effort” Relating to the breathing during training and the inner workings of the organs Shim Gung “Spiritual Effort” relating to our attitude or effort of our mind This article will focus on the term Neh Gung, inner effort. This concept is important to Martial Artists. The neh gung links our external body to our mind. When we breath during performance we use this air as fuel to help our external body keep moving and to keep our mental acuity. This is inner strength. When we develop our inner functions of our body we have a better understanding of who we are and what our limits can be. Our mind is the primary actor and the external body the secondary. In between we have our heart, liver and lungs. These organs supply necessary fuel to our outer body due to the efforts of our mind. It is an important piece in this puzzle. All three components are important, and our inner strength is the gateway between mind and body Many people neglect this aspect. They won’t take the time to practice deep breathing or proper breathing in performance. Subsequently, they become poor practitioners. They also will neglect other important factors in their personal development. Don’t become neglectful of any aspect in our life. Like your training everything is useful and has a purpose.
