Calderdale Community Taekwondo

Calderdale Community Taekwondo is run by Senior lead Instructor Neil Capper, 4th Dan Black Belt.  Neil has had many years of experience within Martial Arts, having started at a very young age at the YMCA in Halifax.  Whilst in the Military (2nd Battalion, The Light Infantry) he started to study Karate as a pass time.  After 9 years Neil left the Army and started life in Civilian Street.  It was at this time that he found a Taekwondo Club local to himself and he started training.  That was nearly 25 years ago and he is still going strong.  He is now a qualified Instructor, International Taekwondo Council Recognised Umpire and Referee and in March 2023, was awarded his 4th Dan following an examination by 6 times world and 9 times European Champion and head of the G.B.T.F Master Roger Lawrence (6th Dan Black Belt), Master T Littlejohns (7th Dan Black Belt) and the G.B.T.F. Technical Advisor Master Mike Essian (6th Dan Black Belt)

Family Friendly


Calderdale Community Taekwondo actively encourages families to train together.  The training and assessments that students undertake are the same regardless of age and therefore, we believe this means that should families want to train together, they can.  This allows our younger students feel confident in their first few classes and our older students feel a little less self-conscious while training.  To help with this and to keep costs down, we offer generous discounts when family members train together.
