57 participants are better prepared for their next grading after attending the Grading Preparation Workshop held on Sunday 11 March 2012 at the National Training Centre. Why not?
There were 11 examiners, 1 national poomsae trainer and 6 national poomsae squad members were in attendance to guide the participants and correct their mistakes.
The session started with an hour theory session covering, among other things, the examiners’ expectations and the interview questions for the April 2012 grading. The participants were informed what they had to do in poomsae, sparring and unarmed combat (for those going for higher poom or dan grading) and guided on the way they should respond to the various questions.
Mr Milan Kwee, STF President, was present to observe the session. He spoke to some of the parents to get some feedback and thank them for their support.
At the end of the session, Mr Sam Tan, one of the course conductors, gave away the certificates to the participants before they gathered for a group picture.
