Grandmaster “Iron” Kim’s Moo Doe moral principles have been shared with, and have positively impacted, the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world. His message will resound time and time again, long after he is gone, to benefit future generations for centuries to come.
From the dawn of civilization, three primary challenges have existed for every human to achieve success in their life. The first challenge is to have good physical health by achieving physical harmony of the body. The second challenge is to have sound mental health and mental harmony, through which you can have a life filled with joy and happiness. Spiritual health or spiritual harmony, the third challenge, can best be reached by purifying the soul. Once purified, you can experience the tranquility of boundless inner peace.
The primary goal of traditional Moo Doe practice over the centuries has been to attain longevity and maintain a superb quality of life by achieving harmony of the mind, body and spirit. Moo Doe practice is one of the fastest ways to achieve complete balance of the body. Even into the golden years of the 80’s and 90’s, the Moo Doe practitioner can retain the full physical activity of his youth and remain mentally sharp and alert. As a result, and perhaps more importantly, by keeping the soul spiritually purified, a good quality of life can be maintained with the wellness that comes from inner peace. This good quality of life translates into longevity with a healthy mind, body and soul. Without achieving a harmonious balance of the mind, body and soul (spirit), it is all too common that people sense a loss of life’s meaning. Without meaning, the pain and suffering of this deep loss causes the wounded soul to constantly search for new directions.
Unlike your physical and mental health, which can be affected by your financial standing to some degree, wealth is immaterial to your spiritual wellness. You can borrow knowledge to help improve yourself and your life. You can buy material comforts to help ease your mental and physical pain and suffering—but no amount of material comforts can bring someone spiritual inner peace and harmony.
The tiger is symbolic of the physical world while the dragon signifies the mental or spiritual world. Together they represent a harmony between the two. The Chinese symbol Yin/Yang (Oom Yung) stands for balance in life.
