Tamales For Sale To Help Raise Money

May 10th, 2010

One of our students, Edgar R. has been training at The Dojo of Karate since October 2008.  We was one of our first Lil’ Ninjas students.

Recently, his mother found out that her sister in Mexico has been diagnosed with cancer.  We do not know to much of her status, and how she is doing, however, Claudia (Edgar’s mom) asked if she could sell Tamales in our school to help raise some money for her sister’s medical bills.

As any good person, I encouraged it, and told her that we’d send out a newsletter update about the situation.

Anyways, Claudia is selling homemade tamales, one with green chili peppers and the other with pulled pork.  They are $15 for 1 dozen… and I must say, they are quite amazing.

If you are interested in purchasing homemade tamales, please let Mr. Lozano know, so he can provide you with her phone number.

Thanks for all your help!

Martial Arts Kids Summer Camp

May 8th, 2010

Westminster, CO – May 10th — How would you feel if your child gained rock solid confidence, laser like focus, and a Black Belt attitude this summer?

Sound good so far?

And what if they also learned life skills, developed balance, coordination, and agility — all while meeting new friends.

Would you still be interested?

Most parents are looking to get their child involved in a Summer Camp activity, as soon as school gets out.  This is a great way to keep kids active by putting them on a schedule that allows them to have fun and learn, while getting out of the classroom setting.

Why is this so important?

Let’s face it… kids need to be kids.

Local martial arts school owner, Javier Lozano, Jr., is the Master Instructor at The Dojo of Karate & Fitness.  He has been teaching in the Martial Arts for over 17 years and working with kids for just as long.  Sensei Lozano has a very good understanding of how to work with kids, while getting their best efforts and building their confidence.

The Dojo of Karate will be hosting a Martial Arts Kids Summer Camp starting on June 7th and ending on June 30th.

This Martial Arts Kids Summer Camp will be held as half-day camps running every Monday and Wednesday for 4 weeks, from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

When your child enrolls in the Martial Arts Kids Summer Camp, they will learn self-confidence and self-control, learn important child safety skills, gain increased fitness through martial arts training and activities, develop respect and leadership skills, and much, much, more.

Sensei Lozano says “our parents truly enjoy the lessons we teach their kids during every class.  We never talk about the same thing, and always discuss topics that parents need their child to hear and re-enforce what’s being taught at home.  In addition, many of our students are learning skills, such as leadership characteristics at such a young age that their teachers are noticing significant differences in their academics & socialization.”

The Martial Arts Kids Summer Camp will be serving families in Broomfield, Westminster, Thornton, and Erie, for children between the ages of 5 and 12 years old.

The Dojo of Karate will only have 30 spots for Summer Campers, due to spacing and proper supervision.  Plus, this makes the camps more personal, which other Summer Camps can not promise.

There will be three different Summer Camp packages for parents to select from.  Packages range from a basic, introductory level Summer Camp, which simply includes evening Martial Arts Classes, to a full package Summer Camp, allowing your child to participate in 2 half-day Summer Camps sessions per week and unlimited Karate training in the evenings.

The Dojo of Karate is conveniently located next to Safeway on 128th Avenue and Zuni Street in the Willow Run Shopping Center.  They have been operating their as a locally owned business for nearly two years, and currently have nearly 110 members in their Martial Arts, Self-Defense and Fitness programs.

Students at The Dojo of Karate show you how Karate has been modernized and can be very fun and exciting.

It can also teach your child life skills, build their confidence, teach them respect, and much, much, more.

This is also the kids favorite part of the demonstration because they get to do cross kicks. Basically, they can showcase their martial arts skills by doing flying kicks.

What kid doesn’t want to do flying kicks???

Broomfield Martial Arts Demonstation at The Super Kids Expo

April 20th, 2010

Broomfield, CO — April 19th, 2010 — Magazine publisher The Yellow Scene for Boulder County, Broomfield County, and North Metro Denver hosted their 2nd Annual Super Kids Expo on April 17th, 2010.

This was a great opportunity for parents and families to checkout some great Kids Summer Camps for their children.

The Dojo of Karate hadn’t heard of the Super Kids Expo trade show before, therefore, martial arts school owner Javier Lozano, Jr. decided to purchase a booth and put together a Martial Arts Demonstration team to perform for the near 2,000 spectators.

The Dojo of Karate will be hosting their 1st annual Martial Arts Kids Summer Camp starting June 7th, 2010.

These will be half-day camps offered on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:00am to 12:00pm, and allow Summer Campers to participate in the Children Beginners Karate program.

In addition to promoting their Martial Arts Kids Summer Camp, The Dojo of Karate put together a team of 18 students, between the ages of 6 to 13 years old to put on a Martial Arts Demonstration.

These students did a wonderful and amazing job performing a sequence of kicks, punches, blocks, and body movement — choreographed to music.

The crowd was extremely supportive and encouraging of the students at The Dojo of Karate, cheering them on the entire time.

Master Instructor Javier Lozano, Jr. said “I was very proud how hard they worked the past 6 weeks, preparing for this demonstration, and coming out with such great confidence. I told them to go out there and have fun when the perform. They obviously had fun.”

At the end of the Martial Arts Demonstration, spectators, parents, and kids were complimenting all of the students.

The kids had a great time, and stuck around right before the rain came down.

Students can’t wait to perform for the next martial arts demonstration.

We’re sure they’ll be prepared…

Until Next Time,

Javier Lozano
