Martin Svitek, 29.6.2008 – Instructor and trainers of our taekwondo school met on Saturday (21/6) to share their experiences and to train together. First (and hopefully not the last) trainer seminar was led by Vláďa Švanda (II. Dan) with main theme – hosinsool (self-defence). Vláďa, beside the fact, that he sings well and is able to eat 5 steaks per meal is also soldier and my opinion is that is the most educated between us regarding methodic of self-defense training. First part (pretty long one :o) was dedicated to theory, explaining the meaning of section mark 13 of penal law and answering our „practical“ questions. Then we played basketball for few minutes (it looked more like rugby, some started trying arm-bars) to warm-up and then training itself started. Basic falls, throws, bars, everything explained to details. I (limping malingerer) spent most of training watching rest of group and I have to say that I saw pretty big differences between our skills, but that is not critic, that’s the reason why we had met. What makes me happy the most was fact that even after 3 hours training everyone looked interested and happy.
So thank you Vláďa and in few weeks we going to share article and hopefully also photos from second trainers seminar.
