They are regular competition goers and for them to be taking part in what must be the largest martial art circuit in the UK, and regularly doing so well, speaks volumes about their commitment and level of training."They are accomplished not only in the sport side of the art but also the technical discipline which builds mental and moral fibre."l For information about the TAGB and it's schools please contact Guy on on 07771 863890.
