Chelsea Sim and Kang Rui Jie, arguably two of Singapore’s best poomsae exponents, left of Seoul, Korea on 5 April 2014 to further upgrade their skills.
They had been sent to Yongin University which is known to produce some of the medal winning Korean poomsae performers. Chelsea and Kang were delighted that they were able to train with the best.
The training was arranged by the Singapore Taekwondo Federation (STF) as part of the preparation plan for potential candidates for the 2015 SEA Games which would be held in Singapore.
The STF is grateful to Professor Kim Jung Heon, who is in charge of the taekwondo programme in the University and is also the Secretary-General of the Asian Taekwondo Union, for making it possible for Chelsea and Kang to hone their skills further. The training will certainly stand them in good stead in the selection trials and the competitions they will be participating.
