I thought I would post this, many seniors are now working on there own operating there own groups esp outside ITF C with out anyone watching over them, in the ITF C I see that many of us are infact in possitions where we are accountable,
Me personally I have three that advise and watch over me and my group, Master Nicholls, Master Harry and Mr Skyrme,
What I like about the ITF C is its structure,
G.M.Choi (Head accoutable to all Masters)
our masters (Accoutable to the G.M.Choi and there own instructors)
Instructors (Accountable to all the above and their membership)
The Members (Accountable to all the above and the public, if they act badly they are accountable)
The WTF saga that happened was a real joke, in 23 years I have only ever seen an instance like that but not that bad it was a well known competitor call another degree member a 'baboon' cos of his colour. 'The action against him was banned from BUTF events for life' He was and still is an ITF member so it realy did not mean a thing at all.
The WTF are sying this guy will be banned from the olympics, will this mean he can can still compete in WTF events? in my opinion he needs to be banned from the WTF, and is it fair that the coach is being repremanded as this was somthing no one can predict or is it.
The point is everyone is accountable, the BTC is a great source as mentioned before I know of a 4th Degree who beat his wife and kids, (He has been forced to leave there home) he is from ITF V group, he has no CRB yet he teaches kids as young as 5 years old and is a total jerk but no one can touch him, I hope the UKCC thing will get rid of this type of coach as it goes against the tenets and what we stand for,
The fact is everyone is accountable, if you are a Master acting badly you can still be repremanded regardless, therefore we all have to watch our actions in and out the Do-Jang and in my opinion a body has to be set up in all countries to stop instructors like the one I have mentioned from being in possitions of authority.
What do you all think about accountability,,,,,,
