the 3rd, 4th and 5th of December 2004, Grandmaster Leong Wai Meng (9th
Degree Black Belt), who is also the Vice President of the ITF conducted
an International Instructor Course for Malaysian instructors. During
the whole course, Grandmaster Leong covered patterns, theory of power,
proper sinewave generation, self-defence routine and much more. It was
a fun course, especially being able to train alongside the Malaysian
Masters, which before this were thought to be very serious and strict.
During the course, junior black belts were assigned into groups
together with senior black belts and given practical assignments. From
there, new friends are made, regardless of the number of stripes on the
belts. To quote Grandmaster Leong, all of us are "white belts",
including him. We are all there to learn, and to learn, rank is not of
importance. Seniors can also learn from juniors, which was seen during
the 3-day course. Around 70 black belts attended the course. Below are
the photos from the event.
