The Dojo of Karate's new home in Westminster, CO[/caption] As many of you may know, The Dojo of Karate plans to move to it's new home in Westminster, CO within the next 30 to 60 days -- with the hope to move no later then June 1st. And, if you haven't heard, The Dojo of Karate is moving to a LARGER space, which will nearly be doubling our square footage to approximately 3,500 square feet. Our new home will be in Park Centre on 120th Avenue and Tejon Street. It's right across the street of the Ranch Country Club, behind Vectra Bank, where the new Snarf's Sandwich shop is located. There are many reason why The Dojo of Karate has chosen a new home, but the most important thing to keep into consideration is that nothing is changing. We have simply out grown our current location and there are far greater opportunities for The Dojo of Karate to grow and share the knowledge of martial arts, self-defense, fitness, and nutrition to our community. This has been a long process, as I began to see what was available in the market almost 14 months ago, with negotiations at our new home beginning around July 2012 and finalized in December 2012. These things take time to workout, but in the long run it's worth the effort. I believe our new location is VERY family friendly, with great businesses that compliment The Dojo of Karate. As I [caption id="attachment_4073" align="alignright" width="300"] We'll be moving to the Park Centre Shopping Center next to Snarf's Sandwich, behind Vectra Bank, in Westminster, CO[/caption] mentioned, there is a Snarf's Sandwich shop, a Kumon Tutoring, a hair salon, a Mediterranean Restaurant, a sports bar called Club Level, a travel agency, an investment / retirement planning place, a Cort Furniture, and a couple of other businesses. Not to mention the other businesses, child care centers, and schools around that area. Today, when Lynn and I went to our new location to put up the Coming Soon banners, they were working on doing the plumbing. Keep in mind, we will be the first business in this new unit, so the landlord needs to put in bathrooms, walls, carpet, offices, and everything in between. So before you come asking "when is the new spot opening?" come checkout our blog postings and get the updates yourself. I'll try to post a weekly or bi-weekly update of our progress, including pictures, and you'll obviously know when we open our new doors. And, if you haven't "liked" us on Facebook, please do so!
