SunDo training sessions are held on the first Tuesday afternoon from 1 to 6 pm of the 5-day annual summer retreat with evaluation taken later in the week.
Training topics and activites include:
Standardizing methods of SunDo practice, implementing teaching strategies in the practice space, providing instructors with teaching materials, demonstrating and modeling by advanced SunDo teachers, and establishing a professional learning community.
Whereas retreat workshops focus on the outer form of leading practice, Tuesday Training Sessions also examine the fundamental concepts and core principles of teaching SunDo.
During a final evaluation, instructors have a chance to test the knowledge learned during the training session and at other workshops during the 5-day retreat.
Who should take the training?
All students, instructor trainees, instructors and senior instructors seeking a promotion to the a subsequent instructor level. Even if you are not promoting to a new instructor level at the summer retreat, these training session requirements must be fulfilled before your next instructor promotion. Teachers need to renew their certification by attending a training session on a five-year cycle with renewal fees.
