Report by Benito Martinez:
The Tournament, Umpire and IT-Committee held an extraordinary meeting on Sunday January 15, as a result of a decision taken in the last ordinary meeting.
The TUIC is working in the dynamics of motivation and promotion of umpiring in Belgium, as an important discipline in Taekwon-Do, which contributes to improving the quality of the competition and the classes in general, and the knowledge of Taekwon-Do rules in particular.
How to have more and better trained umpires, how to get the support of the school owners and instructors in the promotion of umpiring inside the clubs, how to adapt the international competition rules to our national competitions, and make it more clear for all. Also how to work in a more professional way with higher standards and improving of the NUC’s with more practice, evaluation and categories for umpires, and many more important issues.
The TUIC is building a project to the middle and long term education, training and motivation of new umpires; we want this discipline to become more attractive to all, and to help reaching a higher level in the Belgian Taekwon-Do.
