Many would think that when the child attained the POOM Belt (Junior Black Belt), they have completed their taekwondo journey. On the contrary, this is only the beginning of their taekwondo training. They will begin a new learning phase of the sport, after what has been an eventful journey learning the basics and foundation to attaining their POOM belt.
At INDUK, we have introduced the ‘POOM Club’. The ‘POOM Club’ classes are exclusive for the POOM Belt holders, so that colour-belt holders will not be a distraction when learning new and higher level techniques, which includes various higher level kicks and hand techniques. Apart from preparing them for their 2nd POOM and/or higher POOM promotion; focus will also be on the use of power, accuracies and finer points in techniques. Lessons will be kept engaging and fun, with learning taekwondo still the focus.
In addition, students will also have opportunities to assist the coaches to lead classes, as well as guide junior students. Through such activities, we hope to instill leadership as well as patience and compassion in our students.
