Uechi Ryu Karate Do Classes at the Erie Community Center
Karate classes at the Erie Community Center are hosted by Bennetts Karate, location in Erie, Colorado. The Bennetts Karate school teaches a unique form of Karate from Okinawa, Japan – the birthplace of modern Karate. It is considered one of the principle karate systems of Okinawa and traces its roots directly to the Chinese Dragon, Tiger, and Crane styles of Kung Fu. Uechi-Ryu Kokusai Karate-Do teaches students how to fight in close combat, utilizing fast kicks and punches, throwing, and joint locks while using the body’s “center” in order to optimize the amount of power.
