318 coaches and 18 examiners attended the “Wired to Win” Poomsae Seminar held on 26 March 2006 at Toa Payoh Sports Hall.
The event was originally scheduled to be conducted at the National Training Centre. However, the overwhelming response forced the STF to change the venue.
STF President Milan Kwee kicked off the programme with a speech on various areas ranging from discipline to coaches’ continuing education.
It was followed by a talk on the development of poomsae by Chief Examiner Lim Teong Chin and a practice session led by Senior Examiner Chin Khee Shin, Examiner Tan Cheng Hui and Examiner Yeo Boon Thiang.
Organising Chairman Edmund Tan said: “The coaches found the seminar useful. I believe the knowledge they gained would eventually benefit their students.”
“I am glad that the seminar has achieved its objectives of, among other things, keeping the coaches abreast of the latest changes and development in poomsae and equipping them with the finer points of the various movements.”
