Thirty taekwondo coaches from across Nigeria have completed two-day intensive training to update their knowledge of the sport.

Speaking at the closing ceremony of the programme at the Korea Cultural Centre (KCC) in Abuja at the weekend, the Director of KCC, Kim Changki, charged the participants to put into practice all they have learnt during the training programme.

“The Korean Cultural Centre Nigeria trusts you to put into practice all physical and mental training you have received during this seminar into taekwondo job delivery when you go back to your office training centre.

“We also urge you to remember the tenets of taekwondo and live by it,” he said.

On his part, Grand Master Dominic Asuquo Bassey, one of the trainers, said the seminar allowed the young coaches to have the feel of the masters and learn new things which they would cascade to their students.

“The competition rules, the scoring method and the correction on the pattern of Poomsae  – how we score it and how we apply it, officiating, how to study competitions…for medal purpose,” the retired naval officer who is the number one Black belter in Nigeria said.

Gbolahan Ogunmuyiwa, the head of the taekwondo department at KCC, said the theme of the seminar is “reinventing the ways of a prosperous taekwondo coaching career.”

He said the participants had three sessions bordering on the use of technology by coaches to develop their careers as well as physical training on the latest rules in ring sparing and self-defence.
