Tae Kwon-Do was introduced into the United Kingdom in 1967.
In August 1983 it was decided to form an organisation that would be run by a democratic committee without direct influence from either of the two Korean based world bodies. Hence the Tae Kwon-Do Association of Great Britain (T.A.G.B.) was born.
On the 21st of April 1988, a new governing body for Tae Kwon-Do was formed called the British Tae Kwon-Do Council (B.T.C.). This now incorporates 11 different organisations and is the only body for Tae Kwon-Do recognised by the United Kingdom Sports Council. The T.A.G.B. is a founder member and is also at present the largest organisation in the B.T.C. with currently over 20,000 members.The T.A.G.B. is a member of the Tae Kwon-Do International. Tae Kwon-Do International is a worldwide body with representation in every continent of the globe. Tae Kwon-Do International was inaugurated on November 13th 1993 at a meeting held in England, and attended by Tae Kwon-Do practitioners from all over the world
