Examiners Meet

Members of the Board of Examiners met on Friday 6 January 2012 to keep abreast with the latest development of the sport and the direction of Singapore Taekwondo Federation (STF) and also to update themselves on the latest grading requirements.

Mr Milan Kwee, STF President, took time off from his busy schedule to meet the examiners. He thanked them for their contributions and went on to fill them in on Singapore’s status in the international scene and STF plan to get more senior members to be internationally qualified.

After that, the Chairman of the Board provided the examiners with some feedback he received from coaches and parents. He reminded the examiners of their responsibilities and informed them of the changes. These included the scrapping of the modular grading and the introduction of a sparring workshop which will exempt successful participants from the grading components.

The examiners were also given a new list of interview questions. Participants of the Grading Workshop would be taught how to answer them.
