Seminar VII Dan Master Paul Knighton & Exams

posted by tw at 16:09:36 09.04.2014

On the 29th / 30th March we were fortunate to be able to host a seminar in Baden with 7th Dan Master Paul Knighton from the UK. In total, sixty four students and black belts attended, either in part, or for the whole seminar which was well attended.

We had the opportunity to enjoy an intensive, hard but very meaningful two day training. Saturday Morning the training was for all students and grades of ITF Switzerland official schools. In the afternoon, as well as Sunday the training was for more experienced students and was open for to all green belts and above.

On Saturday exams were conducted for 32 students who stood before the strict eyes of Sahyun Knighton (Masters / 7th Dan) and Sabum Regan (teacher / 4th Dan) for inspection, in order to prove that they have mastered their level, and can be promoted to a higher rank The students were tested in small groups of up to 4 people of the same level, and it is with pride we can announce all students passed their exams. 4 students were exceptional enough to be awarded double exams, congratulations!

Sunday was, as already mentioned, dedicated to the more experienced students and black belts. The main focus was on sparring tactics and attack combinations (Matsogi), as well as movement and patterns (Tul). All students learned a lot from Master Knighton and practiced hard.

Photos from the seminar - and especially of the exams can be found here:

The exams are a small but very crucial part of Taekwon-Do. An exam is the opportunity for the student to demonstrate their ability and is the end of one phase of training and the start of the next. As in any school, course or study, Taekwon-Do training continuously develops the student. From one level to the next, Taekwon-Do becomes more difficult, more complex, and assessment criteria more stringent. We feel it is very important at such events to have the support of parents, relatives or partners, by attending and applauding at the end of the exams. It goes without saying that not everyone always has the opportunity to attend, but who has the opportunity should.

Taekwon-Do is not just a sport, It is a way of life.
Before each exam, the Taekwon-Do oath is taken. Five short sentences, with very deep meanings. The oath wasn’t written for fun, but to remind us of who we are and what we do.
I shall observe the tenets of Taekwon-Do.
I shall respect the Instructors and seniors.
I shall never misuse Taekwon-Do.
I shall be a champion of freedom and justice.
I shall build a more peaceful world.

We were very pleased that some parents and relatives found the time to attend the last examinations and support their children or loved ones, We sincerely hope to welcome many more parents and relatives as spectators at the next exams.

TKD-Baden-Mitglieder trainieren mit TKD Pionier der 1. Stunde

posted by sg at 07:18:18 30.04.2012

On the weekend of April 20-22 TKD-Schweiz head instructor Peter Regan and Assistant Instructor Brian Cox travelled to Cork, Ireland, to attend a 3 day International Instructors' course with TKD Pioneer Hwang Kwang Sung (IX). Grandmaster Hwang was one of the first three people in ITF Taekwon-Do history to be promoted to 9th degree by General Choi Hong Hi. Originally from what is now South Korea, Grandmaster Hwang learned TKD in the Korean army, but has lived and taught Taekwon-Do in the United States since 1971. After many years as a special assistant to General Choi, GM Hwang has now dedicated himself to teaching and preserving Taekwon-Do techniques exactly as General Choi created them. The seminar was very well attended with over 100 members, nearly all of which were black belts. Sabum-nim Regan and Boosabum-nim Cox had many opportunities to demonstrate their techniques and receive corrections from one of the most experienced Taekwon-Do teachers in the world. For photos of the seminar, visit our gallery.
