On the weekend of 16th & 17th March 2024, the Czech Taekwon‑Do Federation hosted an ITF International Instructor Course conducted by Grand Master Prof. Hwang Ho Yong (9th Degree), chairman of the ITF Technical and Education Committee, with the help of his assistants and translators Master Martin Zamecnik (7th Degree) and Master Ondrej Vrabel (7th Degree). The course was streamed through the online platform Zoom, presenting a unique opportunity for all countries of the world to participate and learn the original Korean Taekwon‑Do.

The first two sessions (Saturday morning and afternoon) were devoted to a thorough explanation of the Duties and Role of Instructor, Classification of Instructors, Philosophy of Taekwon‑Do, Tenets of Taekwon‑Do, Moral Culture, Student/Instructor Relationship, History of Taekwon‑Do, Traning secrets of Taekwon‑Do, Composition of Taekwon‑Do, Regulations and Conduct in Dojang, etc. The third session (Sunday morning) was focused on proper training methods, how to lead a class, how to give commands, and the proper procedures for pre-arranged sparring. In the final, examination session (Sunday afternoon), Grand Master Hwang tested 19 prospective International Instructors who had to answer questions from the topics covered by the course, and I am happy to report that all 19 applicants passed the exam.

The course was attended by a total of 77 participants from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Croatia, Czechia, Finland, Greece, Grenada, Hong Kong, Ireland, Latvia, Malaysia, Moldova, Nepal, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Peru, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, the USA, and Zimbabwe. A special thanks goes to the attending ITF Grand Masters Wayne Brown, William Chan, Leslie Hutchison, Augustus Mitchell, and Tam Fook Chee.

From 31th May to 2nd June 2024 another ITF International Technical Seminar conducted by Grand Master Prof. Hwang Ho Yong will take place in Prague, the capital city of Czechia. You are all cordially invited to train with GM Hwang in person.
