106 blackbelt holders participated in the first four of a series of six Poomsae Coach Courses organized by the Federation. The courses were specially conducted not only to familiarize them with the latest development in poomsae but also to qualify them as poomsae coaches.
Of the 106 participants, only 13 failed to meet the minimum requirements. The rest did well to obtain the poomsae coaching qualification ranging Levels 1 (Provisional) to 3.
The best trainees for the courses were
- Leong Yun Yuet
- Lim Miao Chen Pauline
- Peh Brian
- Zarena Binte Abdul Rahim
- Ushananthini d/o Vadivelu
Those who were not successful in the courses were required to go for remedial training and retest if they still aspired to obtain the qualification.
