Thornton Martial Arts School | Harvest Fest Demonstration, Part 3
Here is the last video of our 3 part series of the Thornton Harvest Fest Martial Arts Demonstration – The History of Japanese Karate.
Students at The Dojo of Karate show you how Karate has been modernized and can be very fun and exciting.
It can also teach your child life skills, build their confidence, teach them respect, and much, much, more.
This is also the kids favorite part of the demonstration because they get to do cross kicks. Basically, they can showcase their martial arts skills by doing flying kicks.
What kid doesn’t want to do flying kicks???

This was a great opportunity for parents and families to checkout some great Kids Summer Camps for their children.
The Dojo of Karate hadn’t heard of the Super Kids Expo trade show before, therefore, martial arts school owner Javier Lozano, Jr. decided to purchase a booth and put together a Martial Arts Demonstration team to perform for the near 2,000 spectators.
The Dojo of Karate will be hosting their 1st annual Martial Arts Kids Summer Camp starting June 7th, 2010.
These will be half-day camps offered on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:00am to 12:00pm, and allow Summer Campers to participate in the Children Beginners Karate program.
In addition to promoting their Martial Arts Kids Summer Camp, The Dojo of Karate put together a team of 18 students, between the ages of 6 to 13 years old to put on a Martial Arts Demonstration.
These students did a wonderful and amazing job performing a sequence of kicks, punches, blocks, and body movement — choreographed to music.
The crowd was extremely supportive and encouraging of the students at The Dojo of Karate, cheering them on the entire time.
Master Instructor Javier Lozano, Jr. said “I was very proud how hard they worked the past 6 weeks, preparing for this demonstration, and coming out with such great confidence. I told them to go out there and have fun when the perform. They obviously had fun.”
At the end of the Martial Arts Demonstration, spectators, parents, and kids were complimenting all of the students.
The kids had a great time, and stuck around right before the rain came down.
Students can’t wait to perform for the next martial arts demonstration.
We’re sure they’ll be prepared…
Until Next Time,
Thornton Martial Arts School | Harvest Fest Demonstration, Part 1
The Dojo of Karate was contacted by The City of Thornton in August 2009 about performing at their annual Thornton Harvest Fest on September 12, 2009 to celebrate Multi-Cultural Month and teaching kids about Japan.
The Dojo of Karate is a traditional Japanese Martial Arts school, so it made complete sense for our students to put on a demonstration at the Thornton Harvest Fest.
Nearly 36 students got together over the next 6 weeks to practice and train on Saturday mornings.
Our theme for the Martial Arts Demonstration was “The History of Japanese Karate”.
We took the audience through the beginnings of Karate, and how it was introduced to the people of Okinawa through the Chinese Tang Dynasty.
Than we go through how Martial Arts became main stream in the 60s and 70s due to overseas training, movies, and Martial Arts Super Star sensation, Bruce Lee.
Finally, we take the audience to how Martial Arts has become a household sport or activity, and that many schools, including The Dojo of Karate, teaches students about life skills, confidence, and self-defense.
Below is the 1st part of a 3 part series.
Enjoy, because our kids worked hard and had a blast performing.
