Poomsae Seminar - October 29, 2016

Taekwondo Manitoba, in conjunction with the Referee Committee, will be hosting a Poomsae referee information seminar on October 29th, 2016.

This seminar is being facilitated by Master Bhajan Mann. Master Mann is from the Toronto area and is an International WTF Poomsae referee. He is the current head poomsae referee for Taekwondo Canada.

This course is being offered through Taekwondo Manitoba at a substantially reduced price. As such, it will not qualify for official Taekwondo Canada Referee certification. However, the knowledge is very valuable and it is hoped that Taekwondo Manitoba will soon be able to enter this stream in full force. Focus will be on referee rules and scoring of poomsae, including reviewing poomsae movements for various poomsae.

There are two price tiers being offered for this course.
Membership is required.
Please see the attached registration form and contact me if there are any questions.

When: Saturday, Oct 29, 2016, 9:00 a.m. — 5:00 p.m.
Where: Tactical Taekwondo, 50-2866 Pembina Hwy, Winnipeg (Map)
Dress Code: **poomsae dobok or regular dobok required**
