As we’ve been redoing the website it’s been a while since our last post – so here is a combined update of what our instructors and students have been up to outside of their usual (now online) classes!
Online platforms have been brilliant for continuing to train as well as maintaining some social connection with the friends we’ve made around the world at competitions and other events.
While these online opportunities have been so much better than nothing, the lights at the end of the tunnel seem to be getting brighter for in person events. I think we’re all looking forward to travelling to a different country, putting on a dobok and spending a weekend in a sports hall with friends!
Back in December the ITF held a three-day online technical seminar as International Instructor Courses hadn’t been able to run due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Mr and Mrs Swain were ‘joined’ by Mr T Bailey and four other PUMA Members for some fantastic training. The seminar was taught by the ITF’s Technical Committee members (Grand Master (GM) Marano, GM Lan, GM Laquerre, Master Jedut and Master McPhail) and covered the technical details of all 24 Patterns as well as tips for improved performance and flow.
