To become an Instructor at LCTKD, you need to have extensive martial arts experience, hundreds of hours of supervised teaching, and have completed a lengthy and demanding specialist martial arts Instructor course.   

Co-founder of LCTKD Neil R. Hall is now our Chief Instructor. These days, he writes and teaches Tai Chi, Ensodo, Japanese Sword and specialist self defence extensively.  Neil still teaches TaeKwonDo at Ashton-under-Hill and publishes books with self defence specialist with 30 years of martial arts experience, Senior Instructor Dee Milbery.  Dee’s son, Rhys Milbery, also recently became our newest Instructor, and helps with the Ashton class.

The other co-founder of LCTKD, Gareth R. Hall, with over 20 years of martial arts experience, is our Technical Director, and he teaches our classes in Badsey.

Our Chinatown classes are now led by double Black Belt and Senior Instructor Jon Alagoa, and one of LCTKD’s longest standing students, Susanna Fung.  

Senior Instructor Helen Hall, a yoga teacher for more than 20 years, and with more than 15 years in martial arts, specialises in teaching younger students, and now teaches our TaeKwonDo classes at Moreton-in-Marsh, Kitebrook and Broadway, as well as many of our special events.

Rebecca Nevin joined us at Chipping Campen school as a beginner, and went on to qualify not only as a Black Belt, but also as an Instructor, and she taught at Chipping Campden and Kitebrook until recently.

Drew Hall, with over 20 years of martial arts experience and a third degree black belt in TaeKwonDo, teaches our Broom class.

Ravi Luggah and Rich Edkins both learnt their martial arts at LCTKD and went on to qualify as Instructors.  Sami Remili, qualified in WTF Taekwondo and creator of DFS, leads our work on DFS, and we are welcoming a new intake of Instructors and Tai Chi Tutors in 2015/16.

This page tells you about our Instructors, but we wouldn’t want to forget the enormous contribution made by our many Assistant Instructors, Teaching Assistants, and Junior Leaders - all of whom have had to pass difficult courses in the teaching of martial arts.

A big thanks, too, for all those who help us with the marketing, administration, and various aspects of the running of LCTKD.  We are very proud to have such a great team.
