A boy born at 1:00 a.m. on New Year's Day in Korea is considered to be incredible good fortune, but Tae Yun Kim turned out to be a girl, thereby cursing her family with bad luck. This 4'11", 90-pound martial arts Grandmaster overcame abandonment by her family, bomb attacks during the Korean War at the age of five, her brother's suicide, and ridicule and rejection, to become one of the highest-ranking martial artists in the world today. She founded the art of Jung Su Won, and coaches Olympic athletes, corporate executives and movie stars at her academy in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her determination will awe and inspire you, her energy will leave you breathless, and her words of wisdom may very well change your life. Tae Yun Kim says her purpose "is to help people discover the strength within them, and how to use it." She leaves us with this advice: "Always know that you have the capability to do it, if you just give yourself permission to go ahead." (hosted by Michael Toms)
