Is Knowing Self-Defense Important?
If you are like most people, you are not quite familiar with basic self-defense skills.
Most of us live our lives without the slightest concern of learning how to protect you and your family because we live in a safe neighborhood, or your spouse can protect you.
In A Perfect World, We Don’t Need To Know Self-Defense
But, we don’t live in a perfect world…
This is why we believe it is important that everyone has an understanding and basic training in self-defense.
It’s not uncommon to experience a mugging at your local grocery store, an assault in your neighborhood, or feel threatened by an unusual person while going to the gym. These are all common locations that one may need to defend themselves.
All it takes is being off your guard. Not being aware of your surrounding. And being too scared and freezing to be a victim.
Many of us will say “well, that won’t ever happen to me.”
Are you willing to bet those words on Vegas odds? I think not because you don’t know.
Here’s the point. There is no guarantee you and your family will always be safe. However, learning Self-Defense will give you a fighting chance to not only protect yourself, but also the necessary confidence that comes with it.
The Dojo of Karate is the best Martial Arts school in Colorado that teaches Adult Karate & Self-Defense — combining the two most effective self-protection methods.. Meaning, this is an elite program that is designed for the common, working man, or stay-at-home mom.

Westminster, CO – February 23rd, 2010 — Martial Arts expert and local business owner, Javier Lozano, Jr. owns a Karate and Fitness school in Westminster called The Dojo of Karate. He will be hosting a free Adult Self Defense seminar on Saturday, March 20th from 10:30am to 12:00pm for residents of Westminster, Broomfield, and Thornton, Colorado.
This is an opportunity for both men and women to gain some knowledge about self-defense skills, such as striking, kicking, and blocking, as well as basic awareness skills and what an attacker looks for.
Javier Lozano has been training in the Martial Arts for 20 years now and currently holds a 3rd Degree Black Belt in Karate. He is also a former World Champion Sport Karate competitor and is certified as a Self-Defense Instructor under Michael D. Massie’s Martial Arts School Alliance International.
He brings a wealth of knowledge and information from his background, training, and cross-training with other arts and styles.
Why is he hosting a free Adult Self-Defense Seminar?
Lozano says “during a down economy, many of us are short on confidence. By teaching adults basic self-defense skills, they will gain more confidence in themselves, as well as improve their awareness.”
What will he be teaching during this free Self-Defense Seminar?
Master Lozano can’t go into detail about the seminar, but adults can expect to learn how an attacker thinks when selecting victims, to executing proper self-defense techniques that is proven to injure or slow-down an attacker when performed properly. However, the most important thing to remember is that these self-defense moves are easy to perform, and almost anyone can do it.
In addition, the training will be reality based, so participants will have an opportunity to try new, learned kicks and strikes on heavy bags, shields, and partners – while using controlled contact.
“We don’t want people walking out of our Self-Defense Seminar injured and deflated, rather empowered and confident” say Lozano. “That’s why our reality based training is so popular amongst our adult students because you actually learn how to react to an attacker.”
Who can attend this Self-Defense Seminar?
Master Lozano decided to open this seminar to the public for both men and women over the age of 18. Initially, it was going to be a Women’s Self-Defense course, however, “many of our dad’s were sort of disappointed they couldn’t attend” says Lozano. “After getting good feedback from our parents, we decided to make this an Adult Self-Defense Seminar. However, when participants work with partners they will be matched up with someone of the same gender.”
How do you sign up for the Self-Defense Seminar?
The Dojo of Karate has been getting several inquires from parents who’s child trains at the school, as well as their friends. With that said, they will cap attendance to approximately 26 participants. However, if demand increases, Sensei Lozano will open another time slot.
