A practical session of Para Taekwondo
medical classifier course was held by Iran National Paralympic Academy.
All the 12 attendees have successfully passed
the theoretical sessions, formerly.
The courses were aimed at boosting the
number of national classifiers- either medical or technical - in the sport.
Medical classifiers can include
physicians, physiotherapists, ophthalmologists, optometrists and pscyhologists. Technical classifiers are expected to
have an extensive coaching background in taekwondo and Para-taekwondo, as well
as biomechanical and sport-specific expertise.
Classification is crucial to the
integrity and fairness of Para-sport competitions.
