On 17th & 18th April 2007, we had a kind visit from Iran Taekwon-do Union. In total, there were 8 members of the union, together with a translator. Mr. Hamid Mohtashami, President of the Iran Taekwon-do Union , was the team captain. The aim of their visit was to learn ITF-style patterns and training in lieu of their conversion to the roots of Taekwon-do.
Island Taekwon-do Centre had the privilege of holding a demonstration for Iran Taekwon-do Union as a welcoming ceremony for our guests on 17 th April. The 1 st day was reserved for a gathering-cum-get-together session for Iran Taekwon-do Union and Island Taekwon-do Centre.
Iran Taekwon-do Union organized a short training session, based on the kicking techniques for our ITC members. Our members had gained new knowledge in their quest of learning Taekwon-do. With due respect, Mr. Motashami and his team had demonstrated various kicking techniques of differing abilities which held our members in awe.
With a short training stint, both Iran Taekwon-do Union and Island Taekwon-do Centre has made it a valuable lesson. At Island Taekwon-do Centre, we hope to hold more training visits in the future for our kind friends from Iran and hereby wish them all the best in their conversion to the original Taekwon-do, International Taekwon-do Federation.
