A Taekwondo Instructors’ Course was recently held at SMKJ Kwang Hua, Klang. Organized by Power Sport Taekwondo Academy, the course had attracted as many as 90 participants that filled the open arena on the 27th June 2010.
The course, aimed for black belt students and current instructors was to strengthen the participants’ basics and to nurture up and coming instructors. “Apart from teaching them the proper basics, my other objectives in organizing this course is to expose them to the role and responsibilities of an instructor”, said Mr. Leong Yong Wah, technical director for the group.
The course covered many aspects of teaching the martial art, including role model, responsibilities of an instructor, limbering and warming up, basic stances and executions, kicks and taegeuk. The one day course was conducted in detail to ensure nothing was left out. Participants were also divided into groups for trial runs of instructing and conducting taekwondo classes.
The course was conducted by Mr. Leong Yong Wah and his wife Mdm Yeap Swee Bee. Both of them had been in this business for more than 30 years. Mr. Eric Chong, a very senior instructor himself assisted them in the course. Overall the course was a great success, judging by the feedback from the participants themselves. Some even suggested that the course be organized again but for a longer period such as 3 day 2 nights.
