We would like to thank GM Dacak for visiting us, for sharing his valuable knowledge and experience.
GrandMaster Javier Dacak, second ITF Vice President, visited Belgium and gave an outstanding seminar. He was assisted by his daughters Iara and Alana Dacak, World Champion and World Cup Champion respectively.
The seminar took place in Brussels, Woluwe Saint Pierre, Wednesday 19th October. It covered the new ITF Protocol, basic and fundamental principles to improve the performance of tul, stepsparring and some principles of sparring. GM Dacak also took the opportunity to share with the participants some memories about the first and second world championships, where he became World Champion, and some stories about moments he shared with General Choi Hong Hi.
There were participants from different clubs in Belgium, GD Luxembourg, Argentina and Paraguay, from 10°kup till VIII° degree, children, juniors and adults.
