When the Game Stands Tall 09/08/2019

This  is a movie I saw a while back.  It is still a favorite that is timeless.  I can easily sit, watch and completely enjoy with this family and friends. Try it.

Great Grandmaster Tae yun Kim teaches that there are many messages contained within movies, messages that may not be quite obvious, but very powerful. Also, Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim has said that when you want to know what is going on in the world, look at the current movies.  Even the most fantastical movies have messages about what people are thinking about, what people are doing and what is coming for the future.

Great values of courage, love, honor, great action, and history are essential ingredients.
One  great movie I have seen, that I would like to share in this blog is called “When The Game Stands Tall”.  Its about a local football team in the San Francisco Bay Area. This movie is from the beginning to end a great movie. This movie is a 4 Kicker(««««)! It’s good for all ages.   12years and older is the recommended age group.
This movie tells the journey of legendary football coach Bob Ladouceur, who took the De La Salle High School Spartans from obscurity to a 151-game winning streak that shattered all records for any American sport. The winning streak spanned an amazing 11 years. Just think of the work and consistency required by the coach and individual team members.
Remember, every year the players changed due to graduation. What makes this a good movie is its depiction of the behind the scenes work and training that was necessary to prepare to win on a consistent basis. We see the effort to practice hard and practice consistently, not only physically, but mentally and spiritually as well. These are the same principles that are emphasized every day at Jung SuWon!
In the movie, the winning streak ends just as the upcoming seniors start showing early seeds of overconfidence and laziness.
The coach goes through challenges, ups and downs. It is up to the students to decide what is most important for them. (I don’t want to spoil the movie ending, so make sure to see it for yourself!)  I high recommend this for everyone!
All the ingredients of living a “Tall Life” are present and taught here at Jung SuWon! Remember, He Can She Can Do Why Not Me!
