Tae kwon-Do was introduced into the United Kingdom during 1967, but owing to subsequent political differences arising in Korea, first two then several competing groups came into existence.
A number of these were and are dominated by foreign nationals with financial and political interests in what they are doing.
A group of the most senior British Tae Kwon-Do instructors eventualy became so disillusioned with the situation that in 1983 the joined forces to formed the Tae Kwon-Do Association of Great Britain.
The T.A.G.B. contains some of the worlds top Tae Kwon-Do performers, with several world, European and British champions.
Since its inauguration, the T.A.G.B. has grown to become the largest and most successfull Tae Kwon-Do practising organisations in Britain, with more than 16,000 members training in over 300 schools nationwide.
The T.A.G.B. isn´t just concerned with its own developement. That is why it has played a leading role in the reunification of British Tae Kwon-Do into one body.
In 1988, the T.A.G.B. helped the British Tae Kwon-Do Council, this being the only governing body of Tae Kwon-Do to be recognised by the Sports Council.
The T.A.G.B. also helped found Tae Kwon-Do International, the object of which is to bring together practitioners of the art throughout the world.
Tae Kwon-Do International is non political and it doesn´t attempt to dictate to member countries how they must run their affairs.
Since its foundation in 1993, Tae Kwon-Do International has grown to become one of the biggest world Tae Kwon-Do bodies.
Its World Championships are among the largest and best organised and it draws its participants from every continent.
