Are you more ınterested ın coachıng , refereeıng or management?

Of course, especially can improve organizational ability of federation.

When makıng ımportant decıssıons ın kurash who has the fınal say ? You or your daughter

I always support the development of Kurash.
My daughter Jenny arrange the budget for federation.
We always make the final decision in the federation meeting, but most of the time depends on the budget.

What ıs you vısıon for kurash ın your country?

Taiwan government support any sports of Olympic Games and Asian. If kurash is not one of the event in the Asian Games, the federation is very difficultget support and budget.
Taiwan government supports development of kurash in domestic sports education because kurash is the Asian Games event, this is very important for us.
We hopefully IKA can be the member in the SportAccord. For this we can get more supports from government and more peoples will join kurash.

Fınally how ıs corona affectıng kurash now ın your country?

(A) Taiwan ’s alarm system is strong and started to prevent and promote correct ideas very early.

(B) Taiwan is the first country to implement 14-day quarentin, we use face masks, maintain social distance, goverment establish health rules, and highly control the airport and doing the medical test.

(C) Taiwan government established e-notification system and e-control system, and prevent fake messages news.

(D) Taiwan has top medical technology and the factory manufactures masks in large quantities, and Taiwan also share the face mask to all the worldfor free.
For this, people's lives are still normal, and we still have a high degree of freedom in the everyone.

(E) But we still promotion kurash in Taiwan, we send the coaches to all the kurash teams in Taiwan for teaching the technical training and rules, also send the 3 starts referee to teaching the referees in every city.

(F) We will host National Championship in September because the situation better then better in Taiwan now.

Thanks a lot to Taiwan government for its efforts to protect people's lives and health.

Thank you too Mr.Nassiri
