The Target TAGB Tae Kwon-Do group of schools are celebrating another successful grading, with 100 per cent pass rate for all their students.
Over 130 students participated in the grading, held in Honiton in front of 8th dan grading examiner Master Michael Dew, with 48 of them, around a third of the whole grading, coming from the Target TAGB schools in Sidmouth, Axminster, Charmouth (instructed by Mr G Waugh), Colyton (Mr D Sainsbury) and Bridport (Miss C Richards).
The instructors all work closely together and all are very pleased with the results. They offer classes up to seven days a week between the schools and encourage families to train together, with several families taking part in the most recent grading. All five schools are part of the Tae Kwon-Do Association of Great Britain (TAGB), which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and now has more than 600 schools across the UK.
Above average ‘Plus’ passes were awarded to Maisie Bellworthy and Nathan Moorey, of Charmouth, while Aidan Rees and Connor Preston of Sidmouth, Molly McAndrew of Colyton and Rachel Kelly of Bridport, were awarded top-level ‘A’ passes. Grading awards were also issued to Connor, Molly and Rachel.
