Over the next couple of SATURDAYS, we are running 2 events one week apart.
BLACK BELT PRE GRADING. Saturday 24 September 11am
This event is open to all red belts and above. It is compulsory for anyone who intends to grade at the next GTI Black Belt grading in October 2016 or April 2017. Those who are grading soon will be observed and friendly advice given. Those not grading will simply have a Black belt work out with the opportunity to learn or improve your new or existing patterns with a Taekwondo Master.
The session will be conducted by Master Andy Betts 7th Dan. All GTI members or ex NLTKD members are also welcome. White dobok is required.
GTI REFEREE AND UMPIRES COURSE
Saturday 2 October 9:30am to 3pm
The aim of this course is to train and qualify Umpires and Referees. Umpires assist the Referee who is in charge of the ring.
- To be an umpire you need to be at least a Red belt and over 18 years old.
- To be a referee you need to be an experienced umpire.
The GTI runs 3-4 tournaments a year thereby giving all new officials ample opportunity to practice what they learn on the course. This course is particularly useful to adult students who feel there competing days are over but would still like to be involved with Taekwondo competitions.
Existing GTI officials are recommended to attend to refresh their skills and learn new or potentially new tournament rules. NOTE: This course is also a requirement for adults grading for either 3rd or 4th Dan with the GTI.
The training will be conducted by Mr Onipede who is an experienced Referee and the GTI Secretary.
