Are You Interested in Enrolling Your Child in Karate?

The Dojo of Karate offers an Array of Benefits for Children.

Owner and Chief Instructor Javier Lozano Jr. plays an important role in helping young people develop focus, confidence, and self-discipline. Kids learn to concentrate on the tasks they pursue; they discover the value of setting goals and setting their minds to accomplishing them; and they learn to have respect for their peers and adults.

The decision to enroll your kids into martial arts classes should be made methodically. As a parent, you should investigate the various styles (i.e. karate, judo, etc.) to identify the one that best matches your child’s personality. Part of this process includes reviewing your goals and those of your son or daughter.

Choosing A Style That Fits Your Child’s Personality

Every child has a unique temperament and personality. Some are rambunctious while others are naturally calm and easygoing. Some are aggressive while others are even-tempered.  There are dozens of Martial Arts styles and each offers distinctive features that dovetail with certain personality traits.  Children who are enrolled into martial arts classes that fit their personalities are more likely to enjoy the experience.

What Is Your (And Your Child’s) Objective?

Parents enroll their children into martial arts classes for a variety of reasons. Ideally, the motivation springs from a desire to give their kids an opportunity to develop lifelong skills.   If your child has difficulty controlling their emotions, the structured setting of classes offered at The Dojo of Karate can teach this skill. If your child suffers from ADHD, then martial arts offers an ideal environment to help them hone their focus and improve their attention span. If your kids have trouble persevering toward a defined goal, karate can encourage self-discipline.

If you would like your child to train at a safe and exciting martial arts school that is family oriented, than contact The Dojo of Karate & Fitness at 303.920.4500 or email at [email protected]

They are located in the Safeway Shopping Center on 128th Ave and Zuni St. in Westminster / Broomfield.

More Broomfield Boot Camp Testimonials

We’ve got more testimonials from our boot campers from getting amazing results.

The average amount of weight these ladies are losing is about 4 lbs in 4 weeks… the healthy way. However, we’ve had these ladies lose approximatelyy 2-4 inches on their waist, hips, and thighs by simply following our workout plan and nutrition program.

Those companies that say you can lose 20 pounds in 4 weeks… though it may be possible, your biggest concern should be whether it’s healthy…

Losing weight is great. It’s motivating, builds confidence, and makes you healthier. However, it’s not worth the cost of your future health.

So, when you’re looking for a fitness program that guarantees results, make sure it’s healthy.

Westminster Health & Fitness Boot Camp Launches New Time Slot

After high demands of incorporating an evening Fitness Boot Camp, The Dojo of Karate and Fitness will launch a new time slot starting in April 2010.

Fitness Boot Camp Instructor and Certified Personal Trainer, Javier Lozano, Jr. is the owner and Chief Instructor of The Dojo of Karate and Fitness. A premier martial arts and fitness school serving residents in the Westminster, Broomfield, and Thornton area.

“Many of the parents at our school have been requesting an evening Fitness Boot Camp, and we were just having trouble fitting it into the schedule” says Javier. “But we made a few adjustments, and were able to find a time slot.”

The new time slot will start on April 13th from 8:00pm to 8:45pm, and take place every Tuesdays and Thursdays for a 4 week session.

Their fitness program is called the Fighting Fit2 Boot Camp Fitness Program (TM), and it has been taking the country by storm.

Founder and National Director, Michael D. Massie is the creator of the F2 Fitness Boot Camp, and has been in the martial arts and fitness industry for over 25 years. He designed this boot camp with the mind-set of getting the best results in a short period of time.

What makes Fighting Fit2 Fitness Boot Camp (TM) so different from the others across the Denver Metro area?

Where do we start!

For starters, the F2 Fitness Boot Camp (TM) is taught by Javier Lozano, Jr., a former World Champion fighter and Certified Personal Trainer under AFAA. He has a solid understanding of how the muscles work, and what types of exercises will deliver results to help build lean and toned muscles. He has also trained in the martial arts for 20 years and continues to train regularly.

Under his watchful supervision, he coaches and encourages you from the beginning to the end, and takes a passion in helping you meet your fitness goals. Javier also uses an accountability system in all of his boot camps and demands only the best effort from everyone. But still encourages people to have fun.

The next thing that sets the F2 Fitness Boot Camp (TM) a notch ahead from other boot camps is their actual program.

They constantly use muscle confusion during every session. Meaning, their exercises are never the same, therefore the body can not adapt and plateau.

“Every time you come to class, we have a new workout” says Javier. “Even though it may be working the same muscle groups, the actual workout is different, and it can get other smaller muscle groups involved. Let’s face it, variety is the spice of life, and exercising is no different.”

Javier has incorporated exercises that use body-weight resistant, medicine balls, resistant bands, kettlebells, and sandbags, just to name a few.

By using all of these training tools, equipment, and more, boot campers never know what the next exercise will be.

They also use interval training during the cardio portion of their workouts. Basically, this involves you performing short bursts of exercises for a short period of time.

The beauty of interval training is that you will continue to burn calories 24-36 hours AFTER your workout.

However, probably the biggest difference that sets the Fighting Fit2 Fitness Boot Camp Program apart from the pack is their unique and powerful nutrition guide.

“Our motto is, ‘you can not out train a bad diet.’ I make sure to tell everyone that joins our boot camp to follow the guide because they will see results within 4 weeks. If they do not follow our nutrition plan, they will not see the results that others have experienced” says Javier.

The best part, they do not charge extra for the nutrition plan. This is apart of your membership when training in the F2 Fitness Boot Camp (TM)

Are you curious to see how great the Fighting Fit2 Fitness Boot Camp (TM) really is?

Javier allows everyone to try 1 free class before enrolling in a 4 week session. However, he highly recommends you signup for 3 sessions, or 12 weeks in order to get the results you desire.

Fitness Goals – Is Your Goal Measurable?

Believe it or not, this is a common mistake by many goal setters.

Making your goal Measurable is quite important because this is what will continue to drive you in achieving your goals.  It’s basically your motor.  If you see progress, you will continue to push.

A great way to see if your goal is Measurable is to ask yourself these questions: How much? How many? How will I know when it is accomplished?

That way, you can see progress.

For instance, you can measure weight lose by pounds using a scale or a tape measure around the waist.

Whatever the case is, measure it!

The Dojo of Karate always Measures your goals.  Most people join our Fitness Boot Camp because they want to lose weight, get in shape, feet better, and just have more confidence in themselves.

Well, Boot Campers are always given goals by measuring their progress through Physical Fitness Training Days, taking measurements of their body, and calculating weight and body composition.  From there, you are able to establish reasonable and measurable goals because you are given a baseline.

Plus, all of our Boot Camps are put on a nutritional plan that is designed to help you meet your measurable goals.  Our motto is:

You Can’t Out Train A Bad Diet

The Dojo of Karate offers fitness and exercise classes to residents of Broomfield, Westminster, Thornton, Erie, and Denver.

If getting fit again is a goal of yours, please contact The Dojo of Karate at: 303.920.4500 or email us at: [email protected]

Until Next Time!


Broomfield Adult Self-Defense, part 2

Last time we talked how The Dojo of Karate’s Adult Self-Defense program can give you the necessary confidence in order to protect yourself in practically any given situation.

Now, we move on to a different topic.

Self-Defense Black Belt Program Will Increase Your Fitness & Conditioning

We get this all the time…

“I want to learn real self-defense, but also get a great workout so I can increase fitness & conditioning.”


“Staying physically active is really important to me, so doing activities as a cross-training exercise would be ideal.”

“Well, you’ve come to the right!” is what we typically reply with.

See, in our Self Defense Black Belt Program, you will not only learn reality based self protection moves, techniques, and training, but also increase your fitness level.  It’s inevitable…

When you begin to learn a certain series of attacking moves and strikes, we than increase the intensity when you work on a free standing bag, or focus mitts.  This not only trains you to go hard, but also to push yourself because in every self-defense situation, you will have to fight harder.

In addition, we do “burnout” during each class.  This basically requires you to execute a certain drill as fast and hard as you can for small bursts of time.  This will really increase you conditioning.

Finally, all Adult Self-Defense students have free, full access, to our Fitness KickBoxing to compliment their training and practice certain techniques they use in their self-defense class.

So what are you waiting for?

Join the Self-Defense Black Belt Program and build a better you!  We are servicing residents in the Broomfield, Westminster, and Thornton area, so it’s an easy drive from Denver or Boulder.
