12118690_10207685109584169_4227442327936933715_nI was selected to participate in the 2015 WTF-KHU Partnership Program (Coaches Program) from 12th to 25th October 2015. The program was attended by 71 participants from 26 countries.
2015-10-14-21.28.22Throughout the course, we were exposed to practical/physical and theoretical trainings which include Sparring, Poomsae, Extreme Taekwondo 2015-10-23-19.39.31(tricking), Taekwondo Aerobics, Demonstration, Taekwondo Nutrition, Taekwondo Philosophy, and etc. . In addition, the program also included classes relating to the Korean culture such as K-Pop Dance, Korean Language, and etc.
mmexport1445679921935There were 3 sessions of training per day with 3 hours of training per session. The physical training sessions were exhausting as the participants were only given 2 break sessions of 3 minutes each. I was thrilled and amazed to see some of the coaches / masters with over 50 years of age performing like a young athlete – good stamina, flexibility, strength, speed, and etc.
It was indeed a great learning and growing experience as I learnt more than what the program has offered. It gave me the opportunity to get along and communicate with people from different countries, learning about different cultures and the operation of their Dojangs (training centre), and most importantly, establishing network with other coaches to obtain the opportunity for our team to participate in International Tournaments.
Lastly, I am especially grateful and thankful to Mr. and Mrs. Leong for giving me the opportunity to participate in this program which has brought me much knowledge and experience.
