On 18th September 2019 at 6:30pm, we held our Tiger Tot Grading at the Ickleford Dojo. I’m pleased to say, everyone passed with flying colours and amazing effort all round! So we now have some fantastic new belts in the Ickleford Dojo and Biggleswade Dojo…

The Biggleswade Karate Club has been running since 11th August 2017. We were the first club to use the Kings Reach Community Centre (The Orchard Centre). The club is a member of ESKA (English Shotokan Karate Association)

The club was setup in Biggleswade, as this is where Sensei Steve Pearce lives. The club gives the option for current higher grades in Ickleford to attend a second lesson, which is required when Purple/Brown and above.

The Orchard centre is a brand new facility, having been completed and handed over to the council in May 2017.


  • Large air conditioned hall with sports floor
  • Male & Female changing rooms
  • Male, Female & Disabled toilets
  • Shower
  • Large Meeting Room with conference facilities
  • Fully furnished Kitchen

If you want to know more about the club, then please get in contact.

  • Beginner’s to Green Belt
  • Lesson Time: 18:00 – 19:00
  • Purple Belt & Above
  • Lesson Time: 19:00 – 20:00

Sensei Steve Pearce


Sensei Steve started Karate when he was 10 years old, having joined a club in Baldock which was previously a member of the ESKA Association. Under the tuition of Sensei Sarah and George Fullarton he gained his black belt in October 2002.

Having taken a break for university, he returned to Karate to then obtain his 2nd Dan black belt in May 2008. After another short break pursuing his career and being moved around the UK, he then returned to Karate in January 2013.

It was Steve’s long desire to open his own Karate club and in September 2013 he did so, opening the doors of the Ickleford club.

In November 2017 he obtained his 3rd Dan black belt.
