Poomsae Seminar conducted by GM Kang Shin Chul

A prestigious event was held over the weekend of the 28th August 2012.

Students, Masters and members of the GB Poomsae Squad were treated to a visit  by GM Kang Shin Chul and his talented family. His son Hyung Jun Kang and his daughter, former World Poomsae champion Master Yu Jin Kang.

Most Students completed the 4 x 3 hour training sessions over the Saturday and Sunday.   This iconic family with the perfectly English speaking Mrs Kang helping with interpretation were received with great excitement and admiration. 

The sessions were all delivered with a slight difference but the message theme was consistent all the way through - basics , technique! and understanding the art of TKD

The National Team were treated to a poomsae demonstration and were given constructive advise and help in overall performance of their poomsae.

 Participating over the weekend were GB Poomsae Chairman and National Cadet Coach Master Derek Sumner , and GB Poomsae National Coach Master Gemma Biescas.

Eager to take notes and watch her squad training, Master Gemma could see where the NT need to improve.   Taking advise from GM Kang and family, Master Gemma is keen to get working with her squad and the newly selected world players Ali Pourtahari , Susan Parkins, Master Simon Negus and Hollie Bousfield .

After a thrilling and exhausting weekend Master Derek Sumner presented the family on behalf of Master Adrian Tranter, British Taekwondo President, with salvers engraved with Gratitude From British Taekwondo .

A visit by the Kang Family to some of Britain’s most historical beauty spots was enjoyed by all, including a few additional invited guests such as Poomsae Chairman Master Derek Sumner and host Ali Pourtahari.

Master Derek and Master Gemma would like to thank Ali on behalf of British Taekwondo Poomsae, for his continued support and tireless work especially in bringing the Kang Family to the UK and hosting them for the 10 day visit .
