The grading preparation workshop organized by Bukit Purmei Taekwondo Group on 9 January 2010 at Bukit Batok East Community Club attracted more than 55 participants from 7 clubs. It was conducted by the following examiners – Mr Tan Cheng Hui, Mr Tan Kok Heng and Mr Ng Hwa Ann. They were assisted by Mr Lai Han Seng and Mr Tay Xiong Sheng who are members of the national poomsae training squad.
Said Mr Tan Cheng Hui: “Some of the students required a lot of guidance as they were pretty weak. Their basics were far from desired. It they wanted to pass their grading, they had to practice more.
“I was glad that the participants understood the grading requirements and the examiners’ expectations.”
The participants were also happy because they had a better picture of the grading process and enjoyed the training environment. They had their theory session in an air-conditioned room and practical lessons in an air-conditioned hall. The venue for the workshop was also convenient to them.
