The ITF Secretary General, Master Nicholls along with Master Hogan and myself Mark Skyrme travelled to Zhu Hai China were INO 68, 147 and 335 were hosting the first International Instructor Course.
Early Saturday Morning sore everyone gathering in the hall, for what turn out to be an intensive 8 hour training session. Dr. Zbiqniew Kurk took the group through an intense warm-up, when Master Choi entered he took command for the entire course assisted by Master Nicholls, Master Hogan and Mr Kurk.
The entire 3 day course concentrated on the basics of power generation and use of the sine wave along with utilising body mass and speed. Starting from Choi Ji the whole group went through each pattern by micro analysing every possible way to generate that last extra bit of power. Many of the students returning to the ITF after several years outside were amazed to see how easy it is to generate such power just by applying the basic principles to every single move in the pattern.
With Master Choi's unique teaching style everyone began to see an improvement in their technique and by the end of the three days they were still eager to learn. Master Nicholls and Master Hogan conducted a grading for Mr Jing Nan Xu were he successfully promoted to V Degree. Well Done!
