Report on 50th ITF Instructors Training Course

The ITF Technical Committee celebrated their 50th IIC at a special Dinner in Auckland on Friday 5th March 2010. Started with one minute silence to remember Gm. Tran Trieu Quan.

A video presentation was shown and a special 3D cake was presented. Congratulations to the Technical Committee for their years of dedicated work.

The IIC commenced the next morning with a New Zealand traditional Maori welcome, and then a big announcement of Master Wim Bos receiving promotion to 9th Dan (Grand Master).

There were over 160 participants on the course with a large group coming from Australia and others from Japan and the Cook Islands. A tremendous 2 days of intense ITF Taekwon-Do training took place and the learning was very much appreciated by everyone who attended.

A senior Dan grading was conducted during the course by the three ITF Grand Masters. Master Michael Daher from Australia received his promotion to 8th Dan. Mr Peter Barbour (Australia) was promoted to (Master) 7th Dan and Mr James Rimmer (New Zealand) was promoted to (Master) 7th Dan.

ITFNZ was proud to host the 50th International Instructors Course and a big thank-you goes to the organising committee from our Counties-Manukau Region.
