Teaching, Instructing and Coaching can be one of the most rewarding experiences you can have, it comes with great responsibility and it demands great commitment. Students can make improvements through a structured programme of learning, meaningful practice, measured performance and appropriate competition. Effective coaches will create and manage a safe and fun environment. They will motivate their students to continue participating in Taekwondo, improve their performance and help them to achieve their goals. They will also understand what their students want to achieve, why they are participating in Taekwondo and they will create the appropriate opportunities to build on students’ strengths and improve their weaknesses.
