My experience as a coach on
Motivation and Motivating
Thesis for Dan IX
Willy van de Mortel, Netherlands
This thesis which I am writing for the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF) for my 9th Dan exam is about “My experience as a coach about – Motivation and Motivating” in Taekwon-Do sport, especially as I experienced it myself. Here I write down my experiences as an athlete, coach and parent over a period of 45 years of Taekwon-Do. I am convinced that a number of things are certainly recognizable for other athletes, coaches and parents. Looking back, I realize how important the subject of motivation and motivation is
throughout my career so far in this beautiful sport.
