Patterns are the lifeblood of ITF Taekwon-Do. This sections showcases our TKD Pattern Videos coached by some of the world’s top expert coaches.
ITF ON-LINE SEMINAR VIDEOS
In December 2020 the ITF Hosted an On-line Technical Seminar. We had well over 1000 participants from 60 countries take part.
The plan was for each of the technical committee members to create videos of our subject matter, and use those videos in conjunction with live Q&As.
Due to technical problems, we ended up doing the session LIVE so didn’t use the videos we have prepared.
So some of the videos I prepared that didn’t end up being used, I will be uploading those for Premium Members to watch.
This videos ended up being quite different from the Live version so should be of value even if you were at the seminar.
