New introduction – Freddy the Frog, an accomplished Jung Suwon-imal singer

April 22, 2012

As Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim always teaches us, appearances can be deceiving.  I see this all the time in Jung Suwon class, when big people face smaller, timid appearing students.  But as as soon as they start sparring, soon the taller, bigger Jung Suwon student finds him/herself on the defensive, simply because they underestimated their opponent!

So when I heard this newcomer in the great outdoor Jung Suwon-imal DoJang (this time, it was in Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s garden) I thought he must be a really really huge big frog.  I expected him to be immense!  At least the size of my fist!

Here you can hear Freddy the Frog sing:

Freddy the frog sound

So I started to look for the source of this incredible sound.  I could not find anything.  I heard Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s  voice in my head “Use your awareness!  have an open mind!  Don’t pre-calculate!”

I took a few deep breaths, and then something jumped out from under the beautiful, almost ready to burst out with flowers, rose bushes near the big fountain.  I thought it was a big bug, but it turned out to be a tiny little frog.  Meet and welcome new Jung Suwon-imal, Freddy the Frog!

As a comparison, he is about the size of my big toe nail!  But he looks ready for action!
