1st Technical Seminar with Senior Master Tan Chek Si held in Muntinlupa City, Philippines, 24th-25th May 2014
28th May 2014   11:05

I would like to submit my report on the Event with Senior Master Tan Chek Si that took place here in my country the Philippines last 24th and 25th May 2014. The 1st Technical Seminar that was organized by the Philippine NGB with our guest Senior Master Tan chek Si as the facilitator was attended by at least 13 Black belts under the Philippine NGB, 11 of which are Full time ITF Taekwon-do instructors.
The Seminar duration was 2 days. The first day was for all Black belt instructors who trained for one whole day with the Senior Master. The second day included the gups from 10th grade white up to 1st grade Red with black gup. After the second part of the Training with the Gup and black belts the 3rd PITC Conference was held which was attended by 16 Black Belt official members of the NGB who also addressed their bid to vote for a new set of officials of the Philippine NGB.
I would like to express my gratitude to Senior Master Tan Chek Si for supporting the event in the Philippines. His presence indeed gave a very big boost to the morale of all the instructors of the Philippine NGB. For this the NGB have decided to invite him again next year to conduct a grading for my colleagues.
