Seminar with Master Peros


This 2-hour training session with Master Peros turned out to be an exciting, fun and informative session for students of all ranks and abilities. Ranging from some interesting stretches and excersices to some new sparring techniques.

I think i can speak for all those who was there when I say that training with Master Peros was great fun and I would deffinatly do it again.

We managed to get a group photo and a respecful handshake at the end of the session just before we walked away tired but aching for more.

C K Choi

Grandmaster C K Choi - 9th Degree Black belt.


Enjoy a rare opportunity to train with Grand Master C K Choi on his visit to the UK on Feb 27th 2010 in Cardiff. Grand Master Choi was one of the original Masters who developed our martial art along with General Choi the founder. He admired how the TAGB had retained the original style of Tae Kwon-Do and hence offered to hold seminars, unique to the TAGB around the country.







Grade 'A' passes all round for the Abergavenny TAGB students.
Well done everyone, fantastic results! Keep up the good work.


We are a small and friendly club focused on the traditional values set by Gen Choi, the founder of Tae Kwon-Do. We work hard at our fitness and reap the benefits. We have fun and develop stamina at the same time. We learn powerful effective techniques and their implications.


We learn about self control, discipline and perseverance and demonstrate this each lesson. We gain courage, confidence and develop humility through our martial art. If this is the way you think then come and meet us, we are a friendly bunch with a common goal.
