Development & Coaching Seminars

Master Van de Mortel - back home with his broken hand compliments of a Campbell Gold. He continued on to Wellington where he did his sparring seminar with hand bandaged. He then went to the South Island and flew back home still without having it looked at/sorted by the hospital - this dude is tough !

The Coaching and Selections Committee have announced plans to employ the services of world renowned coach Master Willy Van de Mortel, on an on-going basis.

A specially selected team of JUNIORS will get the chance to work under guidance of Master Van de Mortel, with the long term goal of achieving sparring medals at the 2011 ITF World Champs (hopefully to be hosted in New Zealand). Master Van de Mortel will also work with our top New Zealand coaches as well.

Special Seminars will also be open to the general membership, and each region will be giving the opportunity to host a seminar.
