During this Covid-19 pandemic a lot of instructors are searching their way through online classes, with Facetime, Skype, Zoom or other means. Also Master Virginia (ITF Brussels) stays busy. She wrote this report:
Saturday 18 April, 2020 – virtual Masterclass
In times of the pandemic that we need to train at home, people are finding different ways to get closer. I was invited to conduct a virtual Masterclass via Zoom by the school Centro de Entrenamiento from Misiones (Argentina), lead by Sabum Agustina Correa and Sabum Mauricio Rodriguez (both V° degree). Between the participants there were children and adults from 10° kup till VII° degree, mainly from different locations in Misiones and some participants from Belgium, Hungary, Czech Republic and the USA. It was nice to see on the screen complete families taking part! The class was conducted in Spanish language.
It was a great experience and we could feel the good vibes online of the more than 80 Taekwon-Do practitioners that participated. The class consisted of warming up/conditioning, fundamental movements/kicks in patterns, sparring drills and stretching. After the class participants received a certificate of attendance.
Many thanks to the organizers for the invitation! It was very emotional, challenging and fun!
Yours in Taekwon-Do,
Master Virginia Dionisi – ITF Brussels
