The concept of PhoSeKo
Fostering of high-performance fencing sport in Thailand
PhoSeKo promotes high-performance fencing sport in Thailand on the basis of modern science insights and a full-season professional training concept.
Training of the coaches
Basis of high-performance fencing sport is a solid training of the coaches. The target must be that every full-time PhoSeKo coach possesses a coach license. At the beginning it will be necessary to develop and train coaches in Germany. Prior the required knowledge of German language will be obtained in Thailand. Also German coaches are to support the training in Thailand.
Fostering of the youth
Precondition for high-performance fencing sport is to start training in the childhood. The target should be that teens should obtain international experiences, because: those who have not collected international experiences in cadet and junior will have it hard to participate at Olympics.
Encouragement of German-Thai Relations
Based on life of Somkhit Phongyoo and Wiradech Kothny a special relation to Germans evolved. Both grew up in Germany and celebrated successes in fencing; one as coach, the other one as athlete. Hence various relations and friendships emerged. Further PhoSeKo would like to develop these relations and friendships more.
Sport for physically handicapped
It is self evident that PhoSeKo integrates humans with handicaps in their program.
Encouragement to protect environment
Construction and operation of the fencing center will be oriented on environmental aspects. Warm water, cooling and electricity will be gained on a long term basis from renewable energies.
After the start-up financing by own capital funds from PhoSeKo, the project finances itself through:
o Membership subscriptions
o Booster club
o Entertainment programs
o National- and private funding programs
o Marketing of athletes and events
Instigator for Southeast Asia
Through its central location in Southeast Asia, PhoSeKo aims to develop itself to become an instigator in fencing sport for Southeast Asia. A friendly relation with SEA-states is a precondition.
