Thursday, June 15th, 2017
Hi All
The STV State Championship & Selection, for the National Championship advertised to be held at the State Netball Hockey Centre (SNHC) on 22nd & 23rd July 2017, we wish to advise that this booking has been cancelled by the SNHC.
WE are currently locking in a new date with the SNHC & should be able to release the new date early next week. You will now have extra time to prepare for these events as the new date will be several weeks later than the original dates advertised.
STV apologies for any inconvenience cause by this date change, but unfortunately this matter was completely out of our control.
STV wish to remind you that you must compete in the State Championship & win selection to be able to enter the National Championship later in the year.

I have to congratulate the Kukkiwon on their service as I applied for a number of Dan Certificates early May and received them on the 12th June.
This of course made my students and I very happy.
Thank you Kukkiwon.

June 4th TVI Competition

Monday, June 5th, 2017

The Koryo Taekwondo Centre would like to congratulate TVI for organising another competition this year for Victoria.
It was quite well organised and managed competition and along with the very friendly atmosphere all the Koryo students and parents were quite happy with the day.

Its a pity we do not have more Poomsae Judges at these competitions as it would help with getting our younger and less experienced competitors use to seeing the 5 or 7 Judges set up as specified in the WTF 2014 Rules.

I was surprised to see so fews Poomsae judges turn up to the A.T Refresher Seminar organised by Linda Pace as she had just return from attending another WTF Poomsae Refresher along with Judging internationally for the WTF. Linda shared her knowledged and experience with the few that turned up which included myself.

I’m also disappointed with the numbers to date registered for the OTU Poomsae Seminar scheduled for the 11th June.
As registrations close on the 8th June, it looks like this seminar will also be poorly attended.

I think that politics has a lot to do with the numbers attending these seminars which of course is a shame as the number of our of our Victorian Judges appears to be reducing at an alarming rate.

To try and improve the knowledge of our Taekwondo Community I have also invite younger students and parents to attend this seminar so as to bring as many people up to date as possible.
