Westminster -- December 22nd, 2009 - The Dojo of Karate had their 1st Annual Holiday Party on Friday, December 18th, 2009 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. It was a Potluck style event where students and members brought a dish to share with everyone else. There were a wide variety of food, from pasta dishes, to dips, sushi, enchiladas, and all sorts of desserts. And, the food never seemed to run out... which is a great problem to have. It was entertaining to see how much the kids were enjoying the wide selection because some kids had plates of Doritos and a huge slice of cake, while others were eating 'real' meals. The Dojo of Karate Holiday Party was a great time for students to hangout, parents to mingle, and Sensei Lozano to get out of his Karate uniform and where normal clothes. There were approximately 85 guests in attendance, which is quite a bit, considering that The Dojo of Karate offers just over 1800 square feet. In order to fit all of the guests, Head Instructor and Owner, Javier Lozano, Jr. had to pull up their state of the art training floor mats with the help of a couple of students. Each mat had to be numbered in sequence, in order to place them back down correctly. At the conclusion of dinner, all of the students and guests sat down to watch a video created by Mr. Lozano -- "The Dojo of Karate Year in Review - 2009". This was a 5 minute clip of pictures and videos from how the school began with demolition and construction, to teaching small classes, and eventually growing to it's current size of 90 active students in 18 months. The video clip played the hit single, "Clocks" by ColdPlay -- a magnificent coupling of music and memories. Below is the video that is currently being viewed on YouTube.
