진영쌍검류 수련의 핵심과 요체
I am going to illustrate for trainees to explore the core and essence of Jinyoung Ssangkum Ryu practice in brief as follows.
In the training of Jinyoung Ssangkum Ryu Haedong Kumdo
Through Ki-Mu training, one becomes aware of the flow of energy – Mindfulness and Awareness.
Even Breathing and Normal Mind form the foundation of all practices – Enlightenment.
By employing one or two swords,
one seeks mental and physical training to grasp how to move the body automatically – the principle of body movement.
Practitioners engage in Ki Mu Practice, a training method that cultivates a deep connection with the flow of energy. – Flow of Energy
This practice fosters a heightened state of mindfulness and awareness, where even the act of breathing and maintaining composure becomes the foundation of all training endeavors, ultimately leading to enlightenment. – Enlightenment
Through the use of one or two swords in physical training, practitioners gain a profound understanding of the principles of body movement.
Ki Mu training emphasizes the importance of maintaining Even Breathing and a state of Normal Mind (composure), while sword training focuses on achieving body harmony and balance. – Mastery of how to move the body automatically

with Vipassana Acupuncture Practice
Identifying the blockages and openings of energy in uncomfortable or painful areas and establishing the communication of energy to return to balance and harmony through practice.
The methods of practice include meditation, acupuncture, using stones, swords, and any other tools.
The principle of the body moving automatically and naturally is based on the fundamental concept that my body is not truly mine, and the energy is not mine either.
All the above training methods share the same underlying essence, providing a common foundation.
Whether it is sword training or
acupuncture, regardless of the tool used, it becomes a tool for my mental and physical training, leading to the elevation of martial skills and guiding human life to a better state.
Therefore, the reason why all practice and religious groups use phrases such as “forget yourself,” “discard yourself,” or “empty mind” becomes clear through experiencing and understanding directly through Ki-Mu practice with one or two sword training.
As practitioners delve deeper into their training, they come to realize that their body is not separate from themselves but rather a vessel through which energy flows.
This understanding leads to a state where the body moves instinctively, and practitioners recognize the impermanence of self-identity.
This principle is echoed in various other spiritual and training disciplines that encourage individuals to let go of self-centeredness and transcend their limitations.
Through the integration of Ki Mu Su Practice and sword training, practitioners are able to directly experience and comprehend the rationale behind the emphasis on selflessness and self-transcendence in all forms of training and spiritual pursuits.
This holistic approach enables individuals to achieve higher levels of accomplishment beyond mere mastery of martial arts techniques, which is the goal of Jinyoung Ssangkum Ryu Haedong Kumdo training
Ultimately, the training in Jinyoung Ssangkum Ryu leads practitioners to the right practice for better training and a better life as well.
