International Instructor Course 138: IIC 138
On February 9, 10 2019 Master Rod Johnson from Jon Sun’s Taekwon-Do in Vancouver hosted IIC 138. 133 participants including 14 Masters and 4 members of ITF Australia enjoyed a full two day seminar with ITF technical committee members Grand Master Hector Marano chairman, Grand Master Ung Kim Lam, Grand Master Pierre Laquerre and special guest instructor Master Clint Norman, President of the Canadian Taekwon-Do Federation International. The seminar took place in the terrific Sheraton Marriot Vancouver Airport Hotel.
IIC 138 covered the many parts of ITF Taekwon-Do including fundamental techniques, all patterns, step sparring, free sparring, self defense techniques and self-defence stress management skills as a well as an intense introduction to anaerobic training for maximum performance. The Grand Masters knowledge was remarkable and well…humbling. Throughout the event they consistently welcomed questions and answered all with clarity and respect. Their joy and enthusiasm for instructing was evident and very inspiring. It was a great weekend.
