On November 15, Taekwondo Canada, Sport Burnaby and the World Taekwondo Federation collaborated to provide a free seminar on ParaTaekwondo, as a legacy for the World Taekwondo Junior Championships.
This seminar provided a high-level look at much awaited, WTF ParaTaekwondo Education Program, as well as some valuable tips and strategies for participants to use in their Taekwondo schools and dojangs. Participants from Australia, Portugal, Austria and Belgium came together to assist one another through discussion and brainstorming, guided by educator and presenter, Lisa Standeven.
Lisa brought her own experiences as ParaTaekwondo competitor to the session, along with her 15 years working with individuals with various impairments.
2017 spring, WTF ParaTaekwondo will make their new education program available online, to coaches, instructors, athletes and officials interested in getting involved in the exciting world of ParaTaekwondo!
