[caption id="attachment_3966" align="alignleft" width="300"] The Harlem Shake is taking the Internet by storm... and also our Karate students, by doing the Harlem Shake - Karate Dojo Style[/caption] The Harlem Shake has been the new internet sensation that has been sweeping YouTube and other online video websites all over the world. This Internet Meme gained popularity in February 2013, with various groups, organizations, and friends creating their version of the Harlem Shake, using a clip of electro-trap artist Baeer's Harlem Shake. From major sports teams, universities, and groups of friends, the Harlem Shake has been recreated numerous times on the internet, with each video trying to out perform the previous video. So, what's the purpose of the Harlem Shake...? Absolutely nothing. It's just an easy video to create, edit, and place on YouTube, Viemo, and other video websites. Sensei Javier Lozano Jr -- Owner and Head Karate Instructor at The Dojo of Karate started to get wave of the Harlem Shake staying up late at night, watching ESPN Sports Center, with various sports teams putting together their version of the Harlem Shake. So, Sensei Lozano went online to see if there were any martial arts schools doing the Harlem Shake, and well, there were a few... but not many. The next day, he approached his Karate Students in Black Belt Club (an elite Karate group of students) and asked if they would be interested in doing the Harlem Shake - Karate Dojo Style! The overwhelming response was YES!! Sensei Lozano gave them a few ideas of things they could use during the making of Harlem Shake - Karate Dojo Style, and left the rest up to them and their parents. A few of them didn't know what the Harlem Shake was, so we showed them a few family approved versions so they could get an idea. The following week, on Friday March 8th at 5:30pm, Karate students in the Black Belt Club began to create the internet meme Harlem Shake - Karate Dojo Style and Sensei Lozano playing the director. Below is the end result The Dojo of Karate student's putting in their hard work, effort, and enjoyment of just being kids. Oh, and if you're wondering which one is Sensei Lozano... he's the tall "kid". Enjoy!
