AOB/APB/WSB R&J Instructors Workshop – Final Examinations closed the Week in Assisi12 April 2013
Monday 8 April 2013 was the last day of activities of the AOB/APB/WSB Referees & Judges Instructors Workshop in Assisi, Italy.
The written examinations took place in the morning with 35 candidates completing the process which started the day before.
After the examinations, all participants had the opportunity to discuss the sign language of the Referees. The main objective of this activity was to standardize their sign language, taking into account the different cultures and what the signs mean in certain countries. The signs were showed by Gerardo Poggi (Argentina) and Rakhymzhan Rysbayev (Kazakhstan), both AIBA 5-Star R&Js.
After this six-day intensive training and evaluation process, participants very much enjoyed the farewell dinner. The dinner was hosted by Mr. Claudio Ricci, Mayor of Assisi and Mr. Franco Falcinelli, European Boxing Confederation (EUBC) President, who encouraged them to continue promoting and developing the sport of boxing at the highest level, now as R&J Instructors.
Ray Silvas highlighted that the certified Instructors have now the important responsibility to train future high level R&Js. Therefore, he exhorted the candidates to share the knowledge that they acquired and spread it in their countries and worldwide.
