It has been a tradition in Bulgarian Federation Taekwondo (BUTF) to invite every year high qualified instructors for seminars and courses. Last year BUTF invited Grand Master Lim 9 Dan and this year the Federation invited Master Ivan Tzatchev, a 7 Degree Black Belt. The seminar took place in Sofia Bulgaria on the 15th of June 2014.
Master Tzatchev conducted the seminar focusing on all traditional Taekwondo aspects and techniques, emphasizing the application of Taekwondo in self-defense. The seminar was attended by more than 60 participants ranging from 12 to 56 years of age, and from white belt to 6 Dan black belts.
The seminar program was very comprehensive and exciting, at the same time easy to follow by everyone. Master Tzatchev’s instruction style is very special, and balances well the best aspects of the past Martial Art tradition and attitude with the current attitude challenges facing young generation these days. These things made the seminar very exciting, and at the same time created a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. “It was a very great pleasure to teach the Bulgarian student”, Master Tzatchev says. “They are quite knowledgeable students that gained the knowledge from their instructors, and at the same time very hungry and eager to learn new things. The feedback from the seminar was:“Everybody Happy”
