All the Target TAGB schools are part of the UK’s largest tae kwon-do organisation, the Tae Kwon-Do Association of Great Britain (TAGB), established in 1983.
Classes are available at times to suit most people’s busy lives, with at least one class available every weeknight in the local area, plus also weekend mornings. Training fees allow for unlimited training at all our schools.
Men, women, boys and girls train together and all find improvements in fitness, flexibility, strength, coordination and balance. Tae Kwon-Do is also an excellent way to improve self confidence and children benefit from the structured environment where respect and discipline are promoted
Tae Kwon-Do is about a lot more than just kicks and punches. Defensive techniques and self control are equally important and one of the most important lessons in studying any fighting style is learning the control to know when not to fight, but walk away. Aggression is not tolerated and the training is non contact or strictly controlled contact.
