A 10-hour poomsae course for coaches was held on 22 March 2009 at the National Training Centre. The course covered both theory and practical.
For this course, the participants enjoyed a lot of personal attention because the ratio of ‘instructor’ to student ratio was about 1:4. There were 9 course conductors and assistants.
The two main course conductors were Tan Kok Heng and Tan Cheng Hui. They were assisted by Lai Han Seng, Leon Koh, Samuel Tan, Ng Lee Noi, Muhd Fadhil, Wong Liang Ming and Lim Teong Chin. Under their watchful eyes, the participants’ faulty movements were almost promptly corrected.
It was no wonder that 35 out of 37 passed both theory and practical tests. For theory, they did a 45-minute paper testing their understanding and knowledge of poomsae. The practical tests included poomsae performance to assess the candidates’ ability to demonstrate the poomsae and fault detection to evaluate their ability to spot mistakes.
The results are attached. Congratulations to those who have made it.
