Torfaen Taekwondo are proud to be part of Tae Kwon-Do Association of Great Britain (TAGB).
The Tae Kwon-Do Association of Great Britain (TAGB) was formed in 1983 and was also the founder of British Tae Kwon-Do Council (BTC) which is recognised by the United Kingdom Sports Council.
As the largest martial arts organisation in the world the TAGB has over 25,000 accredited members, 600 schools, and organises seminars with World Masters, demonstrations, and national, regional and international championships every month of the year.
The TAGB is not just concerned with its own development, this is why it has played a leading role in the reunification of British Tae Kwon-Do into one body. In 1988, the TAGB helped found the British Tae Kwon-Do Council (BTC), this being the only governing body of Tae Kwon-Do to be recognised by the Sports Council.
The TAGB also helped found Tae Kwon-Do International, the object of which is to bring together Tae Kwon-Do practioners throughout the World.
Tae Kwon-Do International is non-political and it doesn’t attempt to dictate to member countries how they must run their affairs.
Since its foundation in 1993, Tae Kwon-Do International has grown to become one of the biggest World Tae Kwon-Do bodies.
Its World Championships are amongst the largest and best organised and it draws its participation from every contingent.
The Club has been running for the past couple of years. Through the years, the Club has produced various champions, nationally and internationally. The Club has seen it’s members been chosen to represent Team Wales (Carl Betty, Matthew Jackson, Ben Jackson, James Powell, Jamie Sullivan, Sorraya Levan and Jessica Howells), Team Great Britain (Carl Betty and Matthew Jackson) and Junior Team Wales (Cerys Atterbury, Maya Levan, Grace Cole, Joel Clark, Joshua Gould, Ben Jackson, Kian Griffin and Kieran Sullivan). The Club does not only produce great champions but it’s also one of the few TAGB clubs that has managed to win the Black Belt Grading Awards 10 times – Joshua Lee, Ashley Rappell, Simon Cobley, Maya Levan (twice), Kieran Sullivan, Kian Griffin, Sofea Levan, Rita Levan and Summer Underwood. Winning these awards is indeed an achievement as the winner was chosen from a couple of hundreds of students who took part in the gradings. Recently, Kieran Sullivan was also selected as the Up and Coming Fighter 2019.
