TAGB Tae Kwon Do instructor Chloe Lock was delighted that all 26 students who attend her schools at Honiton and Broadclyst took their grading examination on Sunday at Honiton Sports Centre were successful.

Although many of the students were fraught with nerves it was an especially good day for the Hart family, from Whimple, as all three gained an A pass.

A grading award is presented to the best A grade student from each school attending by the South West grading examiner Master Michael Dew 8th Dan - this time he had to decide which family member should receive the Broadclyst award as all three family members have been previous recipients. Thomas was chosen this time.

It's not all about the A grade students though. Master Dew recognises every individual's ability and looks to see improvement on their previous grading. Many students decide to take up Tae Kwon Do because it is suitable for all abilities and all ages, enabling everyone to train at their own pace.

Some students reach their Black Belt in three and a half years and some take 7-8 years or longer. Tae Kwon Do is not all about the gradings, it has many health benefits as well as the self defence and sporting aspects.

The regular physical training improves balance, flexibility, stamina, strength and posture and the mental element helps focus the mind and provide confidence and self control.
