Strength & Conditioning for Taekwondo Webinar - Working with Coaches and Athletes from the Grass Roots Up

Contemporary approaches to strength and conditioning are starting to take root in Taekwondo specifically as it is an Olympic Sport. This presentation looks at current practices at the elite level, the current research on training, testing and injury prevention and how this can be modified for club coaches to use at the grass roots level in a practical context.
Presented by Ben Exton, AES, AEP, ASpS1, ASCA Level 2
Ben has been working as a strength and conditioning coach for 15 years in Australia and overseas in Tonga and the Pacific. The last 5 years he has been working for Australian Taekwondo developing programs and leading research engagement in the clinical and sport performance space. As well as this he works as an AEP and tutor/lecturer at Southern Cross University.
