Programs & Class Schedule
Welcome to Wards Karate-Do, we are a West Norfolk based Karate organisation that runs multiple clubs in and around Kings Lynn & Downham Market. Our home clubs are Downham Market & Wimbotsham Karate Clubs which is based at Wimbotsham Village Hall on a Sunday & Tuesday, and Downham Market College (Ryston End campus) on a Monday. Our Wiggenhall & Magdalen Karate Club is based at Magdalen Village Hall and runs on a Wednesday evening. All our clubs and events are licensed and insured by the West Norfolk & Fenland Karate Association. Wards Karate-Do specialises in not only traditional Karate training (Karate Do & Karate Jutsu), but also providing Karate training to those with special educational and physical needs, this SEN/SPN training can take place not only on a private session basis but also in most of our public classes, providing access to Karate training for all.
The Wards Karate-Do chief instructor is Sensei Simon Ward (4th Dan) who is assisted by Downham Market Karate Club assistant instructors Ian Scott (1st Dan) & Debbie Ward (1st Kyu). We operate small and friendly classes that offer sessions based on traditional Shotokan Karate taking influence from Okinawan-te and other traditional styles. Our training combines Karate Do and Karate Jutsu. We also offer to all students inclusive membership with the West Norfolk & Fenland Karate Association and access to additional training and courses covering topics from advanced Kata bunkai, Karate-Jutsu and Kobudo (weaponry) through to meditation and inner-spiritual development.
All our clubs offer Karate classes for students as young as 5 with adult classes that have no upper age limit (some classes may be age banded, please check the class timetable for further information). We welcome students from all social backgrounds and ethnic origins, students who attend other Karate clubs are also all welcome to come and train with us. All we ask is that you are willing to try and to push yourself to reach new limits, there is no achievement through not trying!
Want to try, then why not come along to one of our public classes or contact us regarding private lessons? We offer all beginners to our public classes a 4-week introductory course for a fixed price of £15 (payable on week 2).
