Umpire Course & Seminar with Master Bos


Master Wim Bos VIII Dan visited Ireland from 16th - 18th June 2006 to conduct an Umpire Course and Technical Seminars.  Guest of honour for the weekend was Mr. Mark Hutton VI Dan from Scotland.

This was the first major activity since the merger of Ireland's two Allied National Associations (ANA) and was a very good environment for people from all over Ireland to train together and get to know one another.

The umpire course gave comprehensive information on the interpretation and application of ITF competition rules. The technical seminars covered application of techniques, step sparring and pre-arranged free sparring.
