The Management Committee, in its monthly meeting on 17 September 2013, endorsed the recommendations of the Chairman of the Board of Examiners for the following.
- The re-appointment of all examiners except Mr Tan Cheng Hui who had requested for a break.
- The promotion of Mr Lai Han Seng and Mr Leon Koh Wee Kiat from Provisional Examiner to Examiner.
- The appointment of Mr Patrick Tan Yong Chen as a Provisional Examiner.
During the provisional period, Mr Lai and Mr Koh had acted in the best interest of the candidates, conducted themselves responsibly and maintained a high level of integrity. Hence, they were granted the promotion.
Mr Patrick Tan, a 7th dan black belt holder and qualified coach and national referee, has been very supportive of the goals of the STF. He has demonstrated qualities that meet the requirements of an examiner. The Management was convinced that he could contribute effectively as a member of the Board of Examiners.
To all examiners: Congratulations on the appointments and keep up the good work!
