Victorian Poomsae Judging Seminar

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

Dear Instructor,
On behalf of  Taekwondo Victoria Inc, it is my pleasure to invite you and your club to participate in the first 2011 Victorian Poomsae Judging Seminar.
We have not had a local judging course since 2009 so this is a timely opportunity to refresh existing judges, and to recruit new judges for upcoming competitions. 
Without judges, we cannot have competitions!
With reduced numbers of available judges it makes it challenging to hold smooth and successful competitions.   This seminar will lead to an increase in the number of Poomsae Judges available in Victoria which should give T.V.I the opportunity to manage the coming Technical Competition with greater ease and flexibility.
This of course will not happen without your support, therefore we urge you to attend this seminar along with as many of your students as possible.  Give your club the chance to participate and put back into our sport.
Master Julius Burai, Master Robert Schembri and Master Russell Wood will be presenting the first Poomsae Judge Seminar at Craigieburn Secondary College
There will be 3 levels of participation for this seminar:
Poomsae Judges Refresher – for existing judges wishing to freshen up on rules and renew their qualification.
Poomsae Participation Certificate – for all students that undertake the training successfully.
Poomsae Judge NEW – for first time judges.
Eligible participants that successfully complete the seminar will be eligible to judge at a state and a national level.
To qualify to be a Judge, you must hold a DAN level certificate.
Juniors are still strongly encouraged to participate to help further their taekwondo knowledge and experience and to improve their chances of success at a state and national level.
Participants are encouraged to obtain a copy of “The Textbook of Taekwondo Poomsae” as much of what will be taught practiced and discussed can be found in this publication.  (ISBN: 978-89-7336-740-5) 
There will be copies of this book available for order at the seminar.
Note: A number of these text books will be available at the Seminar at $49.95.00 each.
Instructors are also reminded that participants need to be registered with Taekwondo Australia to participate and all athletes are required to present their 2011 TA card at registration.  (A print out of their TA membership status from the TA website will suffice if card is lost).  Unregistered athletes will be unable to participate.
To assist the ease of administration all entries will be payable via credit card or debit card or by money order made payable to Taekwondo Victoria Inc.
For Information Sheet and Application Form please refer Side Bar.
Interstate applicants are welcome.
