Summit fit dojo (the adult workout part of this business) is amazing. All the staff truly cares about you and your goals. The workouts are tough but they work with you and will alter them if you have injuries. Class sizes are small which helps you bond and connect with everyone there. I'm so happy I joined and you will be to.

This karate school is absolutely amazing. The Sensai (Javier) cares about the kids so much and it shows. He teaches them about important values, such as integrity, hard work, dedication, as well as the importance of doing well in school and listen to their parents. I give it 5+ stars!

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.
