ITF KIDS COURSE SCOTLAND
On Saturday 31stAugust ITF Scotland hosted the 6thITF Kids Program Instructor Course. 22Participants from Scotland, England, Wales and Sweden took part in this highly anticipated course.
ITF Treasurer and ITF Scotland President GM MacCallum was present to open the course and to welcome the ITF Kids committee and its participants.
The instructors really enjoyed the new developments that the ITF Kids committee have implemented, the simple approach and progressive nature of the course was very well received with many of the instructors quite surprised at how different the course is to any other course they have attended.
This original course has been developed to raise the standard of young children in Taekwon-Do and very much in line with where many ITF instructors want to teach, keeping completely in line with the principles of Taekwon-Do without deviating into games for games sake.
One of the points the instructors where pleased about was that the kids program is not a private business and is run at minimal cost to the instructor helping them to develop their classes and that the kids doboks are available through all ITF Officially approved suppliers and not just through one single source.
This very intense course is constantly being developed and the content of each Kids course adapts as the course continues to grow. The development of the new ITF Kids website is working well with the launch expected during October, this will enable the instructor to access all of the tools they need to run their classes effectively.
The next courses are in Managua - Nicaragua on 9th and 10th November and New York – USA on 16th November.
Very thought provoking from many previous childrens courses I’ve attended in the past. Fantastic!
