About Josh

Liverpool lad Josh has always had a passion for all things Taekwondo and originally trained in the ITF style before changing to WTF in order to follow his dream.

Calland has previously won gold at both the German and Dutch Opens and was chosen to represent Great Britain at the WTF World Championships in 2015. He bowed out during the preliminary stages however deemed the experience as a learning curve.

He left the World Class Performance Programme in 2017 and is one of three athletes to rejoin in the team’s history.

Since coming back, the determined fighter has added a bronze medal to his collection from the 2018 Luxembourg Open.
