​We are once again into the exam season and many children and parents will be doing everything they can to help with their exams so to achieve the best possible results.
Many children will stop participating in sport and exercise during their exams but a study by The Headmasters’ & Headmistresses’ Conference (HMC) has found that taking part in sports will have no effect on results.
The study analysed the GCSE results of 1,482 male and female students from 19 independent schools, and examined the effect that participation in sports had on their results.
In fact, taking part in sport appears to have a lot of positive impact. There is no evidence that people involved in sport get any worse GCSE results. They are however happier, mentally healthier, less anxious and more resilient and robust. Taking part in sport on a regular basis is not doing any harm and it is doing them good, there is an abundance of benefits to sport and wellbeing and it plays a vital role to a balanced and healthy lifestyle and the findings in this research strongly suggest that students revising for their GCSEs or A-levels should not abandon sport.
The profile of “super performers” was also examined in the research. Students, who were the very top academic performers, played a lot of sport as well as achieving the highest grades in their class.  
Aside from providing a well-needed break from the marathon revision, when our bodies engage in exercise, it triggers the release of various hormones and chemical compounds in the body. These hormones and chemical compounds all have very important effects on a variety brain functions.
What endorphins are released during exercise, and how they help
Serotonin – involved in regulating sleep patterns and improving mood.
Dopamine – positively influences learning and attention span.
Norepinephrine – affects motivation and mental stimulation.
Combined with an increased blood flow to the brain, this concoction of hormones and neurotransmitters improves cognitive function and the ability to focus for longer time periods. Which translates into higher quality revision sessions and a higher chance of achieving your target results.
Research also shows that exercise significantly reduces resting levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, allowing you to spend less time worrying and more time getting work done.
Not only that, regular exercise has also been shown to increase the size of the part of the brain involved with memory retention, the hippo-campus.
Taking all of this into account I strongly believe and encourage children to continue participating in sport during the run up to exams as it is good for them to have a balance of activities, also integrating exercise into a revision timetable promotes discipline with time management.

<![CDATA[the Kobukson – Turtle ship]]>Sun, 17 Mar 2019 20:04:58 GMThttp://tagb-taekwondo.co.uk/whitchurch-malpas-oswestry-tagb-tae-kwon-do-blog/the-kobukson-turtle-ship
The Kobukson, also known as the turtle ship was a large Korean warship that was used by the Royal Korean Navy during the Joseon dynasty, 15th century and 18th century. The Kobukson was used in the fight against the invading Japanese and is said to be the precursor of the present day submarine.  The name “turtle ship” derives from its protective shell-like covering and is often recognised as the first armoured battleship in the world.
Turtle ships were equipped with at least five different types of cannons. Their most distinguishable feature was a fierce fire breathing dragon-shaped head at the front of the ship that could launch cannon fire or flames from the mouth. Each ship had a shell-like covered deck to protect against arrow fire, musket shots, incendiary weapons. The covered deck also had iron spikes to prevent the enemy from attempting to board the ship.
Admiral Yi Sun-Shin is reputed to have designed the Kobukson in the year 1592. The great Admiral Yi Sun-Shin was never defeated in all of his 23 major naval battles and is dearly cherished by many Koreans.
Below is a fantastic video all about The Kobukson and is well worth a watch.

INDOMITABLE SPIRIT (Baekjool Boolgool)

Explanation of the tenets of Tae Kwon Do

​The tenets of Tae Kwon Do play a huge role in the success of ones Tae Kwon Do training. Any serious student of the art should observe and implement the tenets to the bet of their ability. 


(Pronounced ye-wee)
The showing of politeness in one's attitude and behaviour towards others.
Students of Tae Kwon Do should endeavour to practice the following fundamentals of courtesy to build up their noble character and to conduct training in an orderly manner.
  • To behave oneself according to the etiquette. 
  • To respect others and their possessions.   
  • To encourage the sense of justice and humanity. 
  • To handle matters with fairness and sincerity. 

INTEGRITY (Yom Chi) 염치

​(Pronounced yom-chee)
The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.
In Tae Kwon Do, the word integrity assumes a wider definition than the one usually presented in the Dictionary. One must be able to define right and wrong and have the honesty, if wrong, to feel responsibility.
Listed below are some examples, where integrity is lacking: 
  • The instructor who misrepresents their self and their art by presenting improper techniques to his students because of a lack of knowledge or apathy. 
  • The instructor who camouflages bad techniques and lack of knowledge with false flattery to their students. 
  • The student who requests grade with minimal effort.
  • The student who desires rank for ego purposes or the feeling of power.
  • The student whose actions do not live up to their words. 
The student who feels ashamed to seek opinions from their juniors.


​(Pronounced een-nay)
Persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.
There is an old Oriental saying, "Patience leads to virtue or merit." "One can make a peaceful home by being patient for 100 times." Certainly, happiness and prosperity are most likely brought to the patient person to achieve something, whether it is a higher degree or the perfection of a technique, one must set their goal, then constantly persevere.
Robert the Bruce learned his lesson of perseverance from the persistent efforts of a lowly spider. It was this perseverance of tenacity that finally enabled him to free Scotland in the fourteenth century. One of the most important secrets in becoming a leader of Tae Kwon Do is to overcome every difficulty by perseverance.
   Confucius said; "One who is impatient in trivial matters can seldom achieve success in matters of great importance."


(Pronounced gook-gee)
The ability to control oneself, in particular one's emotions and desires, especially in difficult situations.
This tenet is extremely important both inside and outside of the dojang, whether conducting oneself in free sparring or in one's personal matters. A loss of self control in free sparring can prove disastrous to both student and opponent. An inability to live and work within one's capability or sphere is also a lack of self-control.
    According to Lao-Tzu "The term of stronger is the person who wins over oneself rather than someone else." 

INDOMITABLE SPIRIT (Baekjool Boolgool) 백절불굴

(Pronounced beckjool boolgool)
To show courage when you and your principles are pitted against overwhelming odds.
A very good example of this tenet is when Leonidas and his 300 Spartans at Thermopylae stood up to Xerxes and his elite vast army.  Indomitable spirit was shown when a courageous person and his principles are pitted against overwhelming odds.
"Here lie 300, who did their duty." A simple epitaph for one of the greatest acts of courage known to mankind.
   A serious student of Tae Kwon Do, will at all times be modest and honest. If confronted with injustice he will deal with the belligerent without any fear or hesitation at all, with indomitable spirit, regardless of whosoever and however many the number may be.
    Confucius declared: "It is an act of cowardice to fail to speak out against injustice." As history has proven, those who have pursued their dreams earnestly and strenuously with indomitable spirit have never failed to achieve their goals. 
<![CDATA[Five reasons why you’re never too old to start Tae Kwon Do]]>Sun, 17 Feb 2019 14:00:50 GMThttp://tagb-taekwondo.co.uk/whitchurch-malpas-oswestry-tagb-tae-kwon-do-blog/five-reasons-why-youre-never-too-old-to-start-tae-kwon-do
If you’re interested in starting Tae Kwon Do but are afraid that you’re too old, you are not alone. Many adults want to start Tae Kwon Do but they never make it to a class simply because they let their age stop them. But think about this: if you don’t even try, you won’t know what you’re missing out on!
If you have or are considering starting but you’re afraid of being too old, remember that age is merely a number and it doesn’t define you and your ability to thrive in the dojang. Instead of just thinking about it, why not take action and book or go for that first class now?

Here are five reasons why you’re never too old to start Tae Kwon Do

1. Tae Kwon Do is excellent for stress relief
Life can be hard, stress and anxiety are on the rise. A little Tae Kwon Do training is a great way to take the edge off. Whether you are looking for an adrenaline rush from sparring, the stress release from punching and kicking pads, or the focus of practising patterns, chances are that Tae Kwon Do will provide a way of managing your stress in a healthy and enjoyable way that works for you.
Tae Kwon Dot doesn’t just give you a needed break from the challenges of life outside of the dojang. It also assists you to develop the tools that will help you combat stress in other aspects of your life. Physical activity and mental training are effective ways to manage stress, and Tae Kwon Do training provides both of those in a safe, friendly and fun environment.
2. It’s a fun way to develop and maintain physical fitness
Getting and staying fit takes work and it can be a challenge if you’re not into weight lifting and aerobics classes offered by your traditional gym.
Tae Kwon Do lessons offer adults a way to challenge crucial components of physical fitness including strength, cardio, balance, flexibility, and agility in a fun and non-judgemental environment.
Whether you’re looking for the intense warm-ups, pad routines, and sparring or the low impact endurance training of line work, patterns and theory Tae Kwon Do training offers an extensive variety of options for people of all needs and levels of fitness who are looking for a new way to improve their wellbeing. 
3. Tae Kwon Do can provide you with vital self-defence skills
It’s better to be safe than sorry, you don’t know what’s round the corner and some sound self-defence training is beneficial to people of all ages. Tae Kwon Do lessons can provide you with practical techniques that you can apply to real life situations that will help give you the confidence and skills to help to protect yourself and your loved ones in the real world.
Good Tae Kwon Do training will also help you gain the ability to think on your feet, prevent situations escalating and when to fight and when to run, which is an important but often overlooked component of self-defence.
4. Tae Kwon Do is great for your social life
Some health professionals say we are currently in a "loneliness crisis", medical studies have associated loneliness with costly physical and psychological ills, loneliness has been proven to be worse for health than smoking 15 cigarettes a day, Countries such as Japan, China and South Korea report similar problems, and in January Theresa May appointed the world's first “minister of loneliness” to address the issue here in the UK. 
Tae Kwon Do is a great way to improve your social life for a number of reasons. Most training takes place in an encouraging and fun atmosphere, helping you to relax and be yourself amongst new people. Tae kwon Do can also be relatively non-competitive, because it focuses on individual development and accomplishment. Your fellow Tae Kwon Do practitioners are there to help you and each other be the best that they can be, not compete against you, which makes for a very positive environment to build new friendships in. Tae Kwon Do introduces you to some of the finest, coolest, most thoughtful, respectful, and interesting people you’ll ever meet.
5. It’s never too late to get into shape
Each and every day is a new chance to work on becoming an improved version of yourself, and Tae Kwon Do can help you to get there. From the physical to mental, there’s no doubt that regular Tae Kwon Do training will help you to get into the best shape ever, whether that be martial artist or as a person.
Tae Kwon Do encourages continuous self-improvement. As a result, you would constantly be working towards becoming a better version of yourself and eventually evolve into everything you wish to become in life. 
It may be cheesy but, it helps to remember that you only live once. So don’t let your age stop you from unleashing your greatness!
