On the 25th and 26th of January, Fall River Taekwon-Do once again hosted the “International Ch’ang-Hon Taekwon-Do Federation Maritime Annual Technical Seminar”. The seminar featured Kwan Jang Nim Cariati – VIII Degree and president of the ICTF.
The weekend commenced on Friday evening with a four hour Instructors Seminar where Kwan Jang Nim Cariati ran eight of the Maritime Instructors through an extremely detailed educational session. This session also included the successful testing of Mr. Muise to 5th Dan (Muise Taekwon-Do, Yarmouth) and Mrs. Stewart to 4th Dan (Stewart Taekwon-Do, Shag Harbour).
Instructors in attendance (alphabetical): Mr. Blue (Blue Taekwon-Do), Mr. Carr (Carr Taekwon-Do), Mr. LeBlanc (LeBlanc Taekwon-Do), Mr. McAvoy (White Tigers Taekwon-Do), Mr. Muise (Muise Taekwon-Do), Mrs. Stewart (Stewart Taekwon-Do), Mr. Stoerig (Fall River Taekwon-Do) and Mrs. Williams (Winding River Taekwon-Do).
On Saturday the Fall River Recreation Centre was filled in three sessions based on belt level. The focuses this year were details in fundamental movements, patterns and self-defense. All attendees thoroughly enjoyed the hard work, intense energy and the accessibility and ease of explanation of all topics by Kwan Jang Nim Cariati. Every session ended with contented tired smiles as all learned a great deal and took something home.
Until next year, “kamsahamnida” again Kwan Jang Nim Cariati.
Thank you and Taekwon,
