Matt Ward Karate

At Matt Ward Karate we pride ourselves on the quality of our teaching in the Swindon to Hungerford area. Whether you are an adult or child who has trained at another Dojo previously or if you have no previous martial arts experience, we look forward to starting or continuing your training journey.

Award-Winning Students

Matt Ward Karate Classes for Children

Matt Ward Karate class

We offer group and private classes for children from the age of 4.  We run a junior syllabus tailored specifically for children.  There are ‘kids’ classes for children aged 4-7 and the ‘Cadets’ classes for children aged 8-15.  The classes are split into beginners and advanced.  There are no more than 12 children in a class.

There are a whole range of martial arts disciplines out there, but generally speaking they all encourage those things we often struggle to generate in children: physical health and agility, discipline and concentration.

With the concept of ‘goal attainment’ via the belt system at the heart of karate, the sport provides a useful way for children to focus on moving ‘up the ranks’ and the sense of satisfaction and self-fulfillment this brings, building a child’s self-esteem and confidence along the way and giving them experience in exam situations through their gradings.

Karate isn’t just about physical prowess – the sport is also about training the mind and spirit so children learn skills they can take into other areas of their life too; better concentration and reasoning skills, vital for academic success. Karate imparts invaluable physical skills, such as self-defense, which may help a child protect itself if they find themself in a risky situation.

Adult Karate

Matt Ward adult karate

We offer one-to-one classes and also have a club session where anyone can come along and train as a group.

Our one-to-one sessions can be booked both during the day and in the evenings to work around your work/life schedule.

Student Testimonials

“Both my children and I have been training with Matt Ward for over 3 years now. He is a fantastic instructor and very patient. It is helped with building fitness and also confidence for many challenges and situations life can bring”. Nici Weck

“I joined Matt Ward Karate in October 2016 with absolutely no knowledge of karate and very unfit. This is a very welcoming club that embraces students of all fitness levels and works with their limitations. Sensai Matt Ward is patient, very helpful and encourages me to do my best. He is always full of praise no matter how small my achievements. His motivation and dedication to his students is incredible and this commitment and support can also be seen with the other instructors. Sensai creates a great atmosphere and delivers quality training. He seems very intuitive and appears to instinctively know when more support is required. He strives to get me to do my best.

My 7 year old son also trains at Matt Ward Karate and thoroughly enjoys his training sessions. Sensai has pitched the training sessions for younger students just right. The way the Karate lessons are delivered encourages my son to stay focused. There is a great sense of camaraderie amongst his peers”. Sarah Thomas Registered Forensic Mental Health Nurse – Ward Manager
