Broomfield Karate School Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

December 6th, 2009

Westminster — December 7th, 2009 — The Dojo of Karate is one of Westminster’s newest thriving businesses that teaches Traditional Karate, Modern Self-Defense, and Fitness Classes to the community of Broomfield, Westminster, and Thornton.

In September, 2009 school owner and master instructor, Javier Lozano Jr decided to join the Broomfield Chamber of Commerce as a way to help continue to grow his business and network with other prospering small business owners in the community.

By joining the Broomfield Chamber, The Dojo has been able to attend a few chamber events and participate in Broomfield’s largest community event — Broomfield Days.

In addition to the numerous formats of networking events and unique marketing ideas the Broomfield Chamber offers, The Dojo of Karate was allowed to have their 1st Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on December 3rd, 2009. Keep in mind that The Dojo opened their doors in August 2008, and never had an official Ribbon Cutting, rather a grand opening event. This gave Sensei Lozano an opportunity to take advantage of the chamber’s way of promoting and public relations with the community and putting The Dojo on the map in Broomfield.

During the ribbon cutting event, many chamber members and ambassadors attended this special day, to help support local businesses and create a sense of community.

All new or established businesses part of the chamber are allowed to have one Ribbon Cutting event to help promote their business to the public. This is also a great way to network and get to know other chamber members.

Sensei Lozano and The Dojo of Karate would like to give special thanks to all chamber members and ambassadors for attending this special day. We appreciate your support and wish you all a Happy Holidays.

Someone throw me a bone!

June 24th, 2008

Honestly! I’m sure I jinxed myself from one of my posts in May – Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down… Things were moving right along. I was getting my sub-contractors lined up, so that when my permit was going to be issued in early June, I’d be right on track. I’m far from that right now.

I finally got my plans reviewed by the City of Westminster, but they did not issue a permit because they are requesting some more clarifications regarding the electrical. I don’t know why either… The changes made to the unit are so minor, that it should had been an easy review because the majority of the stuff is staying/existing. I even talked to my architect about the City’s comments – he was livid! He was even more upset than me because they were questioning his work, when he specifically talked to the city to make sure he was going to meet their regulations. Bob (my architect) thought I was calling to invite him to my Grand Opening… FAR FROM IT… Read the rest of this entry »

Ultimate Karate Training

April 22nd, 2008

Finally!

You may ask, “why finally”?

I finally came up with a pretty cool name for my private lessons that I am trying to promote – Ultimate Karate Training.

These lessons are will be geared to those wanting one-on-one private instruction on martial arts training and fitness. Sessions are more customizable to the client seeking certain goals and interested in learning modern self-defense techniques.

I have not come up with a complete description of the program and it’s structure, but that will be coming soon! If you would like some basic info, please go to our Private Instructions page.

Karate Pump

April 22nd, 2008

Karate Pump. The new cardio-karate class offered by The Dojo of Karate.

After many days of pondering, and numerous discussions with female friends and family – I have decided to implement a new program to offer the 20+ crowd looking for a high-intensity workout.

Karate Pump is going to be a 1-hour class that combines aerobic exercise and martial art basics such as:

  1. Kicks, punches, and strikes
  2. Interval training
  3. Weight and resistant training
  4. Plyometrics and Isometrics
  5. Deep stretching

All while moving to the beats of modern, top 40 music. None of that “sweating to the oldies”…

Feel free to go to our Karate Pump page to learn more about the program and what it has to offer.  I think you’ll be excited to get signed up!

What’s cracking this week

April 15th, 2008

As many of you may recall, I had an architect come over last week to do some measurements of the place. The guy was very helpful because he understands that I’m on a tight budget, and was willing to offer sub-contractors for me to contact for the plumbing and electrical.

City code is requiring that I add another bathroom because of load occupancy. You know when you go into a restaurant and the “load occupancy” says 204… that’s what I need to do too. So I’ll have two bathrooms, a small area where students can place their bags and personal belongings, and a small office for parent/student conferences. I guess he had to draw up EVERYTHING in the place. Read the rest of this entry »
