Our Style

Uechi-Ryu (Way-chee-roo) is based on a specific form of Chinese temple fighting originally called Pangai-Noon (pung-guy noon). Pangai-Noon is a method of self-defense based on the movements of the tiger, crane and dragon. Uechi-ryu-Karate-do emphasizes close-in fighting, with practical, no-nonsense techniques. The training includes kata practice, two-person application drills/sparring, and physical conditioning.
