OTU Accredited Sparring Coach and Referee Seminar

October 22nd, 2016
OTU Accredited Sparring Coach/Referee Seminar
Well what a great day at Schembries TKD Centre with some 28 people attending the OTU Sparring Seminar.
The Presenter for the Seminar was Denzel Ray who I must say did a First Class Job focusing on the interpretation and implementing on the WTF Sparring Rules and Interpretation.
All the participants I spoke to were more than pleased with the way the Seminars was conducted.
We are now all qualified to Coach Sparring and Poomsae at the coming 2016 Oceania Championships Fiji.
