New Black Belt!

Very happy and proud to present Ben Sutton with his Taekwondo 1st Degree tonight! It's great to welcome him to the Black Belt ranks after successfully taking part in the Black Belt grading last weekend. 

The National Black Belt grading took place on Sunday the 16th of October 2016 at the T.A.G.B. Headquarters in Bristol and was led by a grading panel of World Masters and Senior Instructors of the T.A.G.B. All students were asked to demonstrate their theory of Taekwondo, technical skills, as well as their pattern knowledge, application of self-defense and sparring abilities. 

Ben represented his school and Instructor in the best way possible and has now become a role model and inspiration for his training partners by reaching the rank of Black Belt! Ben started training with me in 2009 and is only the 9th student to achieve the level of Black Belt in our Cowbridge Taekwondo school. I am once again a very proud Instructor!

Well done for this great achievement and never giving up, all the years of hard training and dedication have finally paid off!

2016 Taekwondo International World Open Championships

Massive congratulations to 14 years old Ben Arnesen from Cowbridge on placing third at the recent Taekwondo International World Open Championships! 
The tournament took place on the 16th and 17th of July 2016 at the Birmingham Barclaycard Arena with upwards of 3,000 competitors coming from all over the World to test their skills and battle it out in the different aspects of Taekwondo. 

The competition was a huge success and ran perfectly over the 2 days to accommodate the thousands of competitors taking part in events such as traditional and musical patterns, point stop and continuous sparring, destruction and International Teams sparring event. 

Ben took a hard fought Bronze medal in the junior red belt heavyweight sparring division after 4 gruelling fights, only narrowly missing out on a place in the finals. This is a fantastic achievement for Ben and a great follow up to his recent third place at the Welsh Open Championships earlier in the year! Ben is the first student at the Cowbridge Neil Gimbel Taekwondo school to get a medal at a World Championship level and is now a role model and inspiration for all his training partners! Years of dedication and consistent training is starting to pay off and Ben's instructor has no doubt that this is only the beginning of a great sporting journey and that more amazing results will follow! Well done Ben!

2016 Summer break

Taekwondo 2016 Summer Break

With the school holidays looming and impending holidays planned, we will close training between the 15th of August and the 1st of September 2016. Therefore, the last training session will be on Friday the 12th of August and we will re-commence training on Thursday the 1st of September 2016, (usual times).

IMPORTANT: Due to the clubs being closed in the last 2 weeks of August, all students will have the option to train at both venues (Cowbridge and Porthcawl) for the first 2 weeks of August. This will give students the opportunity to train up to 4 times a week during that time.

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a lovely summer break and thank you for your continued support to the clubs.

New Black Belt!

Massive congratulations to our new Black Belt William Miles!

I am very pleased to announce that Will has achieved the rank of Taekwondo 1st Degree Black Belt after recently taking part in what proved to be a very busy and demanding Black Belt grading!

The National Black Belt grading took place on Sunday the 24th of April 2016 at the T.A.G.B. Headquarters in Bristol and was led by a grading panel of World Masters and senior Instructors of the T.A.G.B. All students were asked to demonstrate their theory of Taekwondo, technical skills, as well as their pattern knowledge, application of self-defence and sparring abilities.

William represented his school and Instructor in the best way possible and has now become a role model and inspiration for his training partners by reaching the rank of Black Belt!

After all the extra hours of training leading up to the big test and nearly six years of consistent training, dedication and hard work, this is a fantastic result and great achievement!

Well done Will!

A special mention also goes to two of our existing junior Black Belts, Jake White and Rhydian Williams who tested for their first Star at our recent colour belt grading! These examinations are a way for our talented juniors to progress along the Black Belt syllabus until they’re old enough to take part in their 2nd Degree grading. The boys were very successful and are now 1st Star Black Belts!
