The Target TAGB Tae Kwon-Do group of schools is celebrating a great start to 2014 with a 100% pass rate for all five of their schools which participated in the February grading, under grading examiner Master Michael Dew, the 8th Dan vice-chairman of the Tae Kwon-Do Association of Great Britain (TAGB).

Mr Gerry Waugh, instructor at the Axminster, Charmouth and Sidmouth schools, said: “This was a very challenging grading. Because of the way the dates fell, there was a shorter than normal gap between gradings, and with Christmas in between and all the terrible weather we had making it difficult for some students to get to training, I am delighted with the excellent results, proving that everyone worked hard.”

Sidmouth students Finn Roland-Small and Thomas West achieved superior Plus Passes, while Jamie Wyant and Aidan Rees achieved the top level A Passes, with Aidan also receiving a Grading Award on behalf of the Sidmouth class.
