Concentration (Chung Shin Tong Il): the ability to focus mental effort
When is concentration necessary? Concentration is necessary for learning and improving skills. It takes work to learn the basic actions and concentration to practice them until they are perfected. Concentration is evidenced in the forms through eye focus, intent, balance, and clean execution of techniques. How else is concentration used?
