Still waiting…

August 19th, 2007

Well, I haven’t heard any news yet about the vacant spot, and I’m getting a bit antsy. I was suppose to hear back from them last week, but nothing. I’m hoping to get an answer this week, so i can start my marketing, and get the ball rolling with the layout of the school - i.e. order mats, mirrors, equipment, and do some tenant improvements to the school.

As always, waiting is the worst. But I guess there’s a reason for everything.

Why Karate?

August 11th, 2007

Why not?!… Honestly though, ’cause it’s really the only thing that I’m truly passionate about. Of course I enjoy other things and activities, but nothing really compares to the love I have for the art. And with that passion, I decided at a young age that I wanted to own a Karate school. So I went to college to prepare myself for what I am doing today. And yet sometimes I feel like I’m still unprepared, Read more…

One step closer to opening!

August 9th, 2007

Well, I received a great phone call today. Let me paint the scene first before I explain the great news I received today.

The Dojo of Karate goes blogging!

August 8th, 2007

So, this blogging thing is a bit new for The Dojo, but from what I hear, it’s necessary to have a blog for your business. Especially, if you are a smaller company that is trying to add a personal touch. Plus, it’s free marketing! With that said, I do not want to focus so much on how friendly and professional my martial arts school is and how training at The Dojo can help improve your confidence, discipline, self-defense, fitness, etc. All of this is extremely important to The Dojo of Karate, and you will learn these characteristics, in addition to others, by training here. But, there’s just more to blogging then naming my features and benefits. This is more for the readers (or bloggers) to learn about The Dojo’s journey, and the person behind the scenes.

So… now that you know what my purpose is with The Dojo of Karate Weblog, I hope you enjoy the ride ’cause it’s only going to get better. I hope…
