The closing date of 1st AUGUST will be strictly enforced for this event, and any entry form sent in without an up to date license number will be returned in all cases, and remember only the NEW International doboks or normal TAGB doboks can be worn at this event.

Once we have the correct amount of officials required we will be closing entry and allocating the squares you will be working on. Thank you in advance for your help.

GRAND MASTER C.K. CHOI
GM C.K. Choi will be attending these championships as our guest and will be presenting the trophies to all those who are successful, so you will have a wonderful photo opportunity to keep – you’re picture with the first ever tae kwon do champion, an original tae kwon do pioneer.
The TAGB team continued its rich vein of form following their victory in Scotland with further wins in the All Ireland tae kwon do championships in Dublin and then winning the WASCO world championships in Sardinia for the third year running!
Our team is now tae kwon do international world champions, Wasco world team champions and Clash of the Titans champion of champions. Well done to you all and a special pat on the back for Andrew Deer, as he is in the final selection for the WTF team representing Great Britain in the 2012 Olympics. Well done Andrew.
As we all know the five tenets of tae kwon do have to be adhered to at all times and in particular in the competition arena, unfortunately at the recent Welsh championships we had some instances of unacceptable behaviour, not from West Midlands Students, but within the TAGB. Fortunately in the TAGB this is very rare, but when it does raise its ugly head it will not be tolerated, and the offending students will serve a 12 month ban from all competitions.
