Coach Turgeon will explain the training methods used to train athletes of all levels, from novice competitors through world-medalist caliber athletes.

Session 1 (9am-12pm) will focus on correct poomsae fundamentals (hand techiques, kicking and transitions), accuracy, and a subset of the Taeguek forms.

Session 2 (1:30pm-4:00pm) will focus on advanced training techniques to maximize presentation for competition, covers some of the Dan-level forms, and introduce some of the new World Taekwondo Beegak Poomsae.
