I hope this newsletter for October finds everyone doing well.
Below are some events taking place this month and in the next couple of months.
So, as many of you know, we are hosting our Women Self-Defense clinic for Saturday, October 8th from 9am to 4pm. This is a 6 hour self-protection course that will teach you the Level 1 curriculum of empty hand self-defense.
The class with go over the following:
The 6 Hour Women Self-Defense course is only $75 per participant and is only limited to the first 20 registrants. If you are interested in reserving your spot, we have approximately 5 slots available, please contact Sensei Javier Lozano, Jr. by emailing him at: javier@TheDojoOfKarate.com. From there he will send you a link to pay for the course via PayPal.
As parents, family members, or simply humans -- many of us try to eat healthy. Unfortunately, many of the food products at the grocery stores are misleading...
This is what I mean.
Many packaged products tend to have ingredients that our body does not know how to process correctly. Or better yet, they are loaded with sugars -- even though the front of the package says "only 100 calories" or "no trans-fats", etc...
Eat This, Not That is a great class for parents, grandparents, adults, friends, and family members interested in learning how to eat healthier by making proper food choices.
Diet is one of the reason Americans are suffering from various diseases, including cancer, obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart conditions, etc.
Now don't get me wrong, it's NOT the ONLY reason... it's simply one of the reasons.
If you know how to make proper food choices for you and your family, you begin to limit the risks your family can potentially suffer in the future, and increase the way your body can function at a maximum level. Even if you're just a normal person, living life day-to-day, or an athlete training for your next 10K run.
Eat This, Not is a FREE seminar open to the public.
The seminar will take place on Monday October 17th, Friday October 21st, and Saturday October 22nd all at 10:00 AM. It will last approximately 1 hour, including a Q & A segment.
If you are interested in reserving your spot, please email me at: javier@TheDojoOfKarate.com. And, if you want to invite someone, please just let me know and we'll put them on the list.
Please keep in mind that we will be closed the following days:
Thursday, November 3rd – My wedding rehearsal dinner
Friday, November 4th – My wedding
As tradition, we always host a Holiday Potluck & Award Banquet at The Dojo of Karate. Right now we have not set a date, but as soon as we find one, we'll let you know.
Typically during the Holiday Potluck we have students and their family members bring a dish to share with other guests. This ranges, from desserts, hot dishes, cold dishes, drinks, and appetizers.
After dinner, we play a slide show with events that took place that year at The Dojo of Karate, which is always a nice little recap of how the year went.
And finally, we finish with the Award Banquet. This is Sensei Lozano's opportunity to reward students in the school for their hard effort in training at The Dojo of Karate. Obviously not every student will receive a reward, as it loses it's prestige... but those that are fortunate enough to receive an award get to have a day to shine in the spot light for their dedicated training in the martial arts.
More information to come shortly...
