  • Title: IUC a Great Success - Irish Taekwon-Do Association
    Descriptive info: With participants travelling from Argentina, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, England, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Scotland, Sweden, USA and Vietnam, this was an historic IUC as it was the first time that the updated ITF rules, which will be introduced from January 2013, where presented.. The ITF delegates; Grandmaster Bos and the ITF Tournament and Umpire Committee members arrived on the Wednesday prior to the IUC for meetings to discuss the new ITF tournament rules.. As well as this they were treated to excursions to some famous sights by the local organising committee.. On Wednesday evening the ITF delegates and some of the local committee had a lovely meal in the Cornstone restaurant in Limerick city, they had a chance to sample some of the local cuisine and see the local city.. Thursday morning started with meetings but in the afternoon the organising committee and the ITF delegates headed for the cliffs of moher.. These cliffs situated in north County Clare and soaring 702 feet above the Atlantic Ocean form some of the most spectacular landscape in Europe and are a must see for anyone travelling to this region.. On route to the cliffs the ITF delegates were treated to lunch in Vaughans restaurant in the seaside town of Lahinch.. This meal was hosted by local Government officials from Shannon Development and Shannon Region Conference and Sports Bureau.. These officials thanked the ITF for choosing this region of Ireland for this event.. They acknowledge how the ITA have been so professional to work with and how, as ITA are a government recognised body, they would give their full backing to a major champinships coming to Limerick in the future.. On Friday evening following a day of meetings the ITF delegates, local committee and other invited guests including masters and Mr Mike Mullen of Top Pro Sports were treated to a fantasic banquet in Bunratty Castle.. This medieval banquet in the 15th Century castle was a wonderful experience and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.. The Umpire course began on Saturday afternoon in the large Jean Monet theatre on the University of Limerick campus.. Master Kenneth Wheatley, President of the Irish Taekwon-Do Association opened the event by welcoming the attendees from around the world as well as welcoming and introducing Grandmaster Bos 9th Dan member of the ITF Technical Committee and Director of the ITF, the Tournament Committee; Master Coos van den Heuval, Master Giovanni Ceccenato, Master Harry Vones Umpire committee; Master Alberto Katz, Master Sandy Dunbar and Mr.. Kurt Ottesen and the other masters in attendance, Master Paul Weiler (Senior Vice President of the ITF), Master Tadeusz Loboda (AETF President), Master Adelbert Wagner (Germany), Master Frank Vanberghen (Belgium), Master James Tjin-A-Ton (Netherlands), Master Gordon Wallace (Scotland), Master Thomas Denis (England), Master Patrick O Rourke (Ireland) and Master Neil Franks (Ireland).. The opening address was delivered by Mr Brendan Dowling, the President of the Irish Martial Arts Commission, the National governing body for martial arts in Ireland.. Mr Dowling spoke of the importance of working in a spirit of cooperation within martial arts as well as the positive role that IMAC has played in the development of martial arts in Ireland.. Mr Dowling also praised the ITA for their work in promoting Taekwon-Do and their contribution to IMAC over the past number of years.. Grandmaster Bos then opened the umpires course by welcoming the attendees to the IUC and congratulating the ITA on planning such a well organised event on the impressive University of Limerick campus.. Master Alberto Katz from Argentina and Mr Kurt Ottesen of Canada then proceeded to deliver a presentation on the rules of ITF Taekwon-Do competition.. They explained the importance of courtesy in Taekwon-Do competition as well as competitor safety, before moving on to the more technical point of organising and running a ring council.. One of the highlights of the first day  ...   from Germany explained that a new electronic scoring system is in development which would allow patterns be scored in real time.. After a short presentation, the participants were given an opportunity to get some practical experience judging patterns under the new rules, with volunteers acting as competitors.. After a short break, the umpire committee moved on to the updated rules for pre-arranged sparring, one of the changes being that only one acrobatic sequence per competitor will now be allowed per performance.. Master Katz also explained that only 1 successful blow should be performed at the end of the routine and all other techniques should be defended against or dodged in line with the Taekwon-Do principle of One Blow, One victory.. The IUC broke for lunch following the prearranged section and resumed with the umpiring procedures for sparring being presented by Mr Kurt Ottesen.. After presenting the rules and procedures for running a sparring ring council, the ITF Delegates asked some of the current competitors in attendance to demonstrate the level of contact which is acceptable in competition as well as what would be deemed heavy contact.. One of the more notable changes to the sparring rules is that one point may now be deducted for grabbing or holding, the Umpire Committee spent some time explaining the circumstances in which a minus point would be given.. Again the participants had an opportunity to get some practical experience as part of a jury council for a sparring match under the guiding eye of Master Sandy Dunbar, Master Vones and Mr Ottesen, while Master Katz displayed video clips of various interactions that could occur within a sparring match and asked the participants to decide what action should be taken in each situation.. This proved a very useful method for helping the umpires to sharpen their skills and make the correct decision.. The final section of the day was comprised of the umpiring procedure for special technique and power testing.. Mr Ottesen led this section and explained how these events where as important to ITF competition as sparring and patterns and that in the future we can expect to see these events taking place on the centre ring of a major championships.. The IUC finished at 7:30pm with a closing address by Grandmaster Bos.. GM Bos thanked the Irish Taekwon-Do Association for their warm hospitality and once again congratulated the association on running an excellent event.. Grandmaster Bos said he looked forward to returning to Ireland for a future event to be held at the superb facilities of the University of Limerick campus.. Master Wheatley then closed the event by thanking GM Bos and the tournament and umpire committee for a very enjoyable and informative course as well as thanking all those in attendance for making the journey to Limerick.. All 180 participants then took position for a group photo and with that the IUC had come to an end.. The Irish Taekwon-Do Association would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Grandmaster Bos and the ITF Tournament and Umpire Committees for an excellent course and would like to thank all our guests from abroad for their company over the weekend and we hope to see you in Ireland again for the International Instructors Course to be held in Kerry in January 2013.. Gratitude must also be expressed to the event sponsors Top Pro Sports, Acist Skillnet and Clare Spring water.. Finally a big thank you must be given to the organising committee, the local committee and the volunteers who put in a huge amount of work in the months prior to the event as well as over the weekend to make the International Umpires Course such a success..
