Too many cases of local sports bodies self destructing over the last few years
:stupid:
Unfortunately, sports has reached a point where it has to be more professional. Yet, sost NSA are run and managed by amateurs or by people with self-serving interests without any professional help. As a result, most of them CMI.

SAGA - delisted by SNOC in 2001. a new NSA, Singapore Gymnastics, reborn in its wake.
SBBF - NSA status revoked by SSC (now SportSG) in 2013.
SAAA - (now SA) responsibility of managing the SEA Games squad taken over by SNOC and SG in 2017.
FAS - threatened with a suspension by FIFA for political interference in 2018.
STF - suspended by SNOC in 2019.
Cannot agree more, NSAs need to modernized run professionally so that sports can improve in SG.
Compared to other countries , some of our more successful/prominent sports persons have done it mostly on their own. From their parent's own pockets from their own savings.
Be it main stream or non core sports, these sports persons should supported.

SG have talent just that not supported by NSAs.

Quite number of kids there, competent coaches from what I have seen.
Managed by Mr Lai who has been in TKD for quite long time.
Of the three JH Kim schools here, the biggest I would say.
I think they offer trial classes as well, can call them to check

Is your child interested in competitions?

If you are looking around the Bukit Timah area, there are several schools that you can choose from.

Thanks Sob7!

My kid's still new on his TKD journey... guess we're open to him joining competitions if he shows the aptitude and interest.

So amongst the Bt Timah schools, which would you have picked, assuming you had to pick one?

Most schools around the Bukit Timah area are fairly good, I was asking if your child is keen on competition as some schools do not participate much in competitions.
Around the Bukit Timah area you have JH Kim, ildo, trifecta, kyunghee that I would utilise the trial class for your child to see if he likes which one

Thanks sob7!

From your knowledge, which are the schools that participate often in competitions?

I also see from some schools' timetable that they have Level 1, 2 or 3 classes. Are these levels determined by each school or is there a common understanding of what belt levels go under each level?

JH Kim, Ildo, Trifecta I see a lot in competitions, Kyunghee might have but I did not notice.

The levels mostly by schools, usually not related to belts.

Good luck on the TKD journey
