HK Correctional Services Academy organises 5-day Chinese-style foot drill for different auxiliary units and youth uniformed groups


29th September 2022 – (Hong Kong) The Correctional Services Department has fully adopted Chinese-style foot drill since July this year to maintain the strict discipline of officers. In the same month, the Hong Kong Correctional Services Academy also organised a 5-day Chinese-style foot drill course for different auxiliary units and youth uniformed groups to train them to become Chinese-style food drill “seed instructors”, laying a solid foundation for the introduction of Chinese-style foot drill by uniform groups in the future. Since the implementation of the plan, Chinese-style foot drill instructor courses have been provided for 5 auxiliary units and youth uniformed groups.

The Chinese-style foot drill emphasises uniformity and teamwork, requiring an elaborate display of synchronised movements with steady and sonorous steps to showcase high spirit, confidence and the commanding presence of the team.
