My daughter was 3 when she started in the Dragons version and will be aiming for her black belt next! 🥋 I have seen her grow in so many ways as a result of the personalised, professional attention to each student. My youngest daughter has progressed through to the 3rd belt and now I’ve joined them on that journey! Coming out of my comfort zone was hard at first but the classes are geared towards all levels and having family classes means we can train together 💗.

We have gone through some challenging personal circumstances and the sensitivity and compassion shown by the team has been very much appreciated 🙏🏽. The sense of achievement spurs you on and for that time in the class you become immersed in the experience of doing something for yourself and improving your mental and physical health which is critical. 💪🏽🧠❤️I highly encourage you trying this out and you won’t be disappointed bringing that form of discipline and learning into your life. ☺️

My son started at Warrior Factory 18 months ago, he loves attending every session. He has made lots of new friends including staff, built his confidence, skills and discipline.

I highly recommend to anyone who comes accross this review/ website to try for yourself or your children. One of the best parts is, you get a free class or two, to see how you settle in.

All staff are very polite, professional highly skilled and very interactive with all ages. The rooms are always filled with happiness, you are always very welcomed, staff always take a great interest in you and your child.

Whenever I’ve had to reschedule for whatever reason, a simple email and staff have accommodated for my son.

10 STAR ALL ROUND!!!!

My 2 girls started in July 2023, they absolutely love coming to Taekwondo. The eldest has gained so much confidence. The instructors are brilliant, very knowledgable and the kids love them. There is a real friendly family feel to the club, you are always greeted with a friendly smile and a warm welcome. I would highly recommend the Warrior Factory to any parents wanted their child to learn a martial art, skills, discipline and gain self confidence that will stand them in good stead for life. They offer 2 free taster sessions so you have nothing to lose and all ages are welcome.read more

My boys absolutely love coming to Warrior Dragons, they are always met with a warm welcome and everything is so well organised. My eldest is usually shy and takes a while to warm to new places but that has never been a problem at warrior dragons which is a true testament to all the staff 😊 highly recommend for your little ones!read more

RESPONSIBILITY
Leaders Must Own Everything In Their World. There Is No One Else To Blame.

Children visiting your centre has caused me nearly £5k of criminal damage Saturday 22june the parents said they would take responsibility Donna & Jordan but now failing too. Teach the kids how to treat others property with respect. I also reported to the receptionist at the centre who failed to get me a call back from the owner.read more

Both my boys are Dragons at Halifax. They love the classes and are excited to attend every week. The classes are fun, affordable, great excercise and the coaches have such patience and enthusiasm. My littlest’s listening and behaviour has improved so much since he started and they can channel their rough and tumble energy into safe drills at home with the practice pad. It’s such a welcoming, family friendly and generous sporting facility with charity events, parties and holiday clubs throughout the year too.read more

We’ve been with Warrior Factory Halifax for years and I can’t recommend the guys over there enough!! They offer a wide range of physical activity based on Martial Arts, lessons have a great structure and discipline but maintain fun. The sessions help to build a strength, confidence, concentration and listening skills. The staff is excellent and passionate about their work and they will tailor any exercise to everyone’s ability to achieve an amazing progress. The atmosphere here is fantastic and family friendly. I can highly recommend this place and have a go with one of the tester sessions!read more

My little boy started in dragons a few years ago. He started off very shy and with little self confidence. Jess and the entire team have worked miracles, they have gone above and beyond to make him feel safe and secure, it took lots of time for him to settle in but he was always met with a smiling face and lots of patience! The difference in him now is amazing you wouldn’t believe he’s the same little boy. He now runs in through the door and bursts into conversation with anyone who will listen, he’s learnt that it’s ok to make mistakes and that you just try again, he is now so much more confident in himself and really enjoys going each week.
Honestly can’t reccomend enough!

Two of my children attend Warrior Factory Halifax. They both enjoy their specific lessons, with one being a beginner having joined recently and one at an intermediate level who has been a member for the past couple of years. Both find each session engaging and fun. They look forward to each session, with each lesson having a fantastic structure and discipline but maintaining fun They have kind and passionate coaches who work brilliantly with each child, they have instilled great confidence, resilience and strength in my children. I would highly recommend sending your child to one of the taster sessions to find out if it is for them.read more

As members for over 5 years, we would highly recommend Warrior Factory to anyone looking for martial arts training. Coaches are always encouraging and provide a fund and friendly training environment.

The training rooms are custom-made for martial arts and maintained by the WF team so no mucky sweaty sports hall floor to use after a 5-a-side match.

The team love what they do and it shows in the quality tuition in class.

‘Excellent staff and family friendly. Our eldest has been going 9 years now – we signed her up to build her confidence and she’s loved every minute of it. So much so her younger sister (and now dad) have joined up!’
Since this review I have also joined I’m not going to lie I was terrified before my 1st session but had no reason to be! The staff were incredibly welcoming and I have not looked back. I’m not the fittest person or the most flexible but that doesn’t matter. Techniques are adapted where needed and I have great fun in each session. 2 years on and I wish I’d joined earlier!read more

Family friendly club. Great Instructors. It’s lovely that the whole family can be together in the same class for a very reasonable price.

Quite a relaxed feel to the place when compared with other Martial Arts clubs that I have attended (at least in the class I attend), so if anyone is at all intimidated by attending a martial arts class then don’t be, Warrior Factory is a great place to be for you. Mums and Dads… this is not just for the kids… you can get into it too at the same time 🙂

The only thing I think that would improve the in-class experience is for the Instructors to just be a wee bit more assertive with class etiquette when some of the more exuberant class members are a bit cheeky, mess about a bit or talk over the instructor. My family and I really want to be able to hear every valuable bit of information that the instructors tells us, and concentrate on every technique as its all so good and interesting 🙂

Keep up the good work and thanks guys!

Looking for martial arts in Halifax?

If you have been looking for martial arts classes in Halifax, Hipperholme and Brighouse for your family or children, you have come to the right place. Our Halifax martial arts centre was officially opened in 2009 by Olympian Sarah Stevenson and we have been teaching Ju Jitsu and Taekwondo to families in the area ever since. After starting in Hipperholme and Lightcliffe High School, the club then opened its first full-time martial arts centre in the old gym called Shapers in Hipperholme, Halifax. The unit is a standalone building that is ours full time and has its own dedicated car park with a capacity of around 14 cars.

The main aim of setting up the Halifax Warrior Factory venue was to provide a central place to teach families martial arts in Halifax. Built off the success of the original club at Hipperholme and Lightcliffe High School (started around 2003), the Halifax martial ats club was formed as a Community Interest Club that exists to serve its members. Even though we operate as a ‘not for profit’, we provide a professional service that ensures the future of the club for years to come.

While our martial arts classes are a good form of exercise, they have so many other benefits. Phill Payne started teaching martial arts in 1996 and over the last 10 year has acquired both a BSc and MSc degree in Sports Coaching through Leeds Beckett University. Our Martial Arts programmes are the cumulation of years of study and practice.

While we do have Taekwondo students that perform at high-level international competitions, we are mostly known for our family-centric community. Our mission is to ‘Develop good health and well-being through person-centred martial arts coaching’. The physical and mental health and wellbeing of our members is our number 1 priority.

Warrior Factory Halifax Martial Arts Centre

Want to get started at our Halifax Martial Arts Centre but have a question?

New students can start in our classes at any time so you won’t be the only beginner. You will start in our foundation classes along side other beginners at a similar level.

Just like you, everyone black belt was once a white belt and everyone had a first session. Obviously we cannot guarantee you will get to Black Belt, but if you train consistently and try your best, you will get there eventually.

Walking through the doors for your first class is the hardest part of your journey to Black Belt and beyond. We are a friendly club and we are ready and eager to support you on your journey. 

You pay for sessions on a monthly basis by a Direct Debit that you can cancel anytime. If you of your child no longer wants to continue training, you can just cancel it at your bank.

The cost of our classes are between £4.00 and £7.50 a session (Paid monthly by Direct Debit). These monthly payments also include access to the Warrior Factory online training portal. This allows you to supplement your ‘in person’ training at the Halifax Warrior Factory venue with some training at home

If your children are 6 years or older, you and your children can attend our family Taekwondo classes. As a family martial arts centre, we have a long history of working with families in the local area. In fact, we have quite a few black belt families.

We have students between the ages of 3 and 63 training in our Halifax Martial Arts centre. Age is just not a barrier to martial arts training given the right environment. As the martial arts journey is a personal one, we make allowances for members that started a little later in life.
