Something Different!

Bennetts Karate has been teaching in Erie, Colorado for over 25 years and is now offering an after-school karate program for students that are attending Aspen Ridge Preparatory School. Kids will be picked up on site after school at 3:15 pm and moved over to the Bennetts Karate Dojo across the street, located at 1010 Carbon Court, Unit F.

During their time at the dojo, students will be involved in martial arts activities each day, be able to work on homework, have snack and free time until being picked up between 5 and 5:15 pm. This program is intended for students in Kindergarten thru 6th grade. Students will have fun and be supervised in a controlled and disciplined environment by qualified martial arts instructors.
