Thanks for your patience in waiting for our newsletter this month. We updated our website and there were a few things that went wrong and they needed to be addressed ASAP.
But, now that we have a new look and feel for our website, we are hoping this will help more families learn about our programs and allow them to see what we are all about.
With that said, we have updated our Student Resources Page
to make it a members only
page. Parents and/or children attending The Dojo of Karate will need to create an account with us to have access to this page.
If you do not create an account, then you will not have access to the Student Resources Page, which will have, but not limited to, the following: school closures, rules and etiquette's in the dojo, required training equipment, information about Black Belt Club and Elite Club, belt promotions and requirements, curriculum, and much more in the near future.
To create your account in our Student Resources Page, please go to:
There you will fill out the necessary information to create an account with The Dojo of Karate.
Once approved by the administrator, you will have access to the student resource page. Please keep your username and password confidential.
Sensei Nash Wadokai Karate Seminar
[caption id="attachment_2677" align="alignright" width="225" caption="Sensei Bob Nash teaching at one of his numerous clinics"][/caption]
Sensei Bob Nash has gracefully opened up his schedule to teach a traditional Japanese Wadokai Karate seminar at our school.
If you recall, Sensei Nash is a highly demanded Wado Instructor, traveling all over the world, from Europe to Japan, to Australia, and the United States.
Sensei Nash is my Karate instructor and he has a high demand for his students, therefore, I carry the same standards for our students at The Dojo of Karate.
With that said, the seminar will be on May 20th, 21st and 22nd.
Below are the times for each day.
The cost of the seminar is as followed:
- May 20th - 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (Orange belts and above only. All ages are eligible to attend.)
- May 21st - 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM (Teens & adults only, unless you have been given permission from Sensei Lozano)
- May 22nd - 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (Teens & adults only, unless you have been given permission from Sensei Lozano)
- 3 Days (Friday, Saturday & Sunday) - $75 per participant
- 2 Days (Friday & Sunday Only) - $50 per participant
- 1 Day (Friday Only) - $35 per participant
Martial Arts Summer Camps
Every summer The Dojo of Karate hosts a martial arts summer camp for kids interested in trying out Karate for a short duration of time before making the commitment of training at our dojo full time.
This is a great opportunity to invite your friends that may be interested in the martial arts because they can attend classes either in the mornings or evenings, and the referring student can attend with them at the beginners class.
With that said, our new Summer Class Schedule
has been released and is available online and soon in hard copy.
Our class schedule has not changed, we've just added more time slots to accommodate for overflow in the Beginners Program for the Lil' Ninjas (4.5-6 years old and Junior Kids (7-12 years old).
Below are the new time slots we plan on offering:
- Tuesdays & Thursdays - Kids Beginners, Ages 7-12 years old: 10:00 AM to 10:45 AM
- Tuesday & Thursdays - Lil' Ninjas Beginners, Ages 4.5-6 years old: 3:00 PM to 3:30 PM
We will have be having door hangers going out around the neighborhoods over the next few weeks to promote this Summer Camp program.
Again, if you refer a student to our school, The Dojo of Karate will award you a $25 gift card of your choice, once they have enrolled in one of our programs.
We will be closed the following dates, so please plan accordingly.
- Friday, May 20th - Sensei Nash Seminar
- Monday, May 30th - Memorial Day
- Monday, July 4th, - Independence Day
- Monday - Friday, July 18th-22nd - Instead of taking the week of Independence Day for my personal vacation, I've decided to move it two weeks forward.
If you plan on going on vacation over the summer, please attend extra classes before and/or after your vacation so you stay on track with your training. This includes school closures. And, if you need to attend lower level classes to make up for days missed, please let us know in advanced, but it should be fine to make up classes that way too.
Sensei Robby Smith Wadokai Seminar
My friend David Sasaki operates a dojo in Conifer, CO and he will be hosting a Wadokai seminar with guest instructor Sensei Robby Smith from New Zealand.
The seminar will take place on Fathers Day, Sunday, June 19th.
It's all all day training event, so if you are interested, we will meet at The Dojo of Karate and drive up as a school.
The cost will be $40 per person.
There is limited space, so please let Sensei Lozano know ahead of time before it sells out.
