TNZ Secretary General Visits WTF

2 Jan. 2012 Posted by Garry Carpenter

TNZ Secretary General, Master Matt Ransom recently visited the WTF in Seoul Korea and held a number of meetings regarding the development of TNZ and its programs for 2012 and beyond. Master Ransom first met with the head of the WTF International Referee Division Mr Jay Lee, to thank him for his support of our Kiwi International Referees and to discuss further upcoming Referee and Judging seminars for both Kyorugi and Poomsae.

Master Ransom then met with the WTF Secretary General, Grandmaster Jin Suk Kang to discuss the proposed WTF International Poomsae Judge Certification Seminar & Refresher Course being planned for March 2012 in Auckland. This will be the first time this seminar series is held in New Zealand and is seen as a major step forward for the ongoing development of Poomsae Competition in New Zealand. During the meeting Grandmaster Kang presented Master Ransom with an official WTF Citation for his contribution to WTF Taekwondo.
The final meeting of the day was with WTF Executive Deputy Secretary General, Mr Manseek Choe who was very supportive of TNZ during its early days. Mr Choe is also Vice-President of the Taekwondo Peace Corps. Master Ransom thanked Mr Choe for his support of TNZ and both discussed bringing the Taekwondo Peace Corps back to New Zealand for future visits.
