On 11 June 2006, members of the Singapore Taekwondo Federation (STF) had a joint training session with visitors from the Taiwan Youth Taekwondo Club at the National Training Centre.  It was part of the exchange programme which the STF had with the Club since 1997.

The morning session attracted more than 50 poom belt holders.  Besides the usual warm-up and training, players from both sides had full-contact sparring.

More than 30 blackbelters participated in the afternoon session. The training was conducted by the visiting coach to give STF members a feel of the Taiwanese training methods.  Coach Chiang Chun-Hao was in his elements and the participants matched it with their enthusiasm.

During the break, STF President Milan Kwee presented all members of the visiting team with a souvenir each.  In return, the Club Team Leader, Lai Jung-Mao presented plaques to key officials of the STF.

All the participants in the exchange programme were glad that they were able to bring back some ideas.  Some of them planned to share them with other blackbelters and their students.
