Last week end was held the 62th IIC at Riccione in Italy, 110 participants from 11 countries: Italy, Ireland, England, Germany, France, Switzerland, Bosnia, Czech Republic, Albania, Lebanon and Ukraine.
The course was led by ITF Technical Committee composed on GM Marano, GM Bos and GM Ung Kin Lan. Special guest was GM Pablo Trajtenberg President of the ITF. Were also invited Master Weiler and Master Ferrando, respectively Senior Vice President and Secretary General of the ITF, they have taken the opportunity to meet and discuss the future project of the International Taekwon-Do Federation.
The course was held at the gym “Pattinodromo” sufficiently spacious to allow all the participants to work out without problems. Participants have a high technical level that we precede quickly with the program, questions are numerous and the Teachers give evidence of their knowledge and competence, as you already know GM Marano is like a living encyclopaedia. Unfortunately, after the incident where he was the victim, GM Bos can move only with on crutches so he can’t express his talent in teaching. He looks like a lion in a cage! However we can feel always his presence.
For the Italians GM Ung is a welcome change, his technical knowledge on sparring and competition matters was a great success among the participants, his charisma and his humility capture everyone’s attention.
In the end all participants enjoyed the course very much.
Many thanks to the Italian Taekwon-Do Federation (FITAE) for hosting this 62th IIC, another successful event organized!
