Kukkiwon World Taekwondo Academy(WTA) Completes Courses for Foreigners Including the International Taekwondo Master Course

Training Held at Taekwondowon in Muju from July 8 (Fri) to July 15 (Fri) with 100 Participants

 

Kukkiwon World Taekwondo Academy (WTA) held the “86th International Taekwondo Master Course” and the “40th Poom and Dan Promotion Examiner Course” for foreigners.

 

A total of 100 foreign trainees including 54 from 21 countries for the International Taekwondo Master Course (Class 1, 2 and 3) held for 5 days from July 8 (Fri) to July 12 (Tue) and 46 from 17 countries for the Poom and Dan Promotion Examiner Course (Class 1, 2 and 3) held from July 13 (Wed) to July 15 (Fri).

 

Once a year in Korea, WTA carries out these training courses to improve foreign Taekwondo instructors’ skills, to train competent and fair examiners and ultimately to further promote and improve Taekwondo as a global sport.

 

These courses reopened for the first time in 3 years, had been temporarily suspended since the last training courses carried out in July 2019 because international travel had become very challenging due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The training courses covered Taekwondo History and Spirit Regulations and Rules on Promotion Tests, Examination Theory and Scoring Method, Terminology and Basic Techniques, Poomsae (Color Belt Holders and Black Belt Holders) Demonstration Competition Self-Defence Techniques.

 

This year’s International Taekwondo Master Course was particularly well-received because Lee Kyu-seok, the President of the Asian Taekwondo Association carried out a special 2-hour training on “Taekwondo Instructors’ Attitude”.
