Seven Star Women's Kung Fu


Seven Star - a great training experience 12/11/2006

I’m a student at Seven Star Women’s Kung Fu in Seattle where we have just celebrated the school’s 25th anniversary, recognizing four generations of “women teaching women” martial arts. Seven Star is one of the few all-women’s martial art schools in the country. One of the great things about an all-women’s school is the amount of support we give each other, both on an emotional level and also by understanding the training needs of women. For example, the school provides free child care and offers both daytime and evening classes to help with busy schedules. Also, as an all-women’s school, Seven Star students have an opportunity to learn not only martial arts but also practical, street-wise safety skills especially geared to women. You can attend classes that teach you how to deal with verbal harassment at work or on the street and how to physically protect and defend yourself. Just the self-defense part of the training program makes signing up for classes at Seven Star well worth your consideration. Seven Star is also unusual because it is democratically run. Unlike traditional martial arts schools, Seven Star is run by a steering committee made up of students and teachers. We have an all-school meeting once a month when everyone can vote on issues that are important to the school (we even took a vote on what color to paint the walls!). If you are thinking about self-defense or martial arts training, please visit the school’s website for more information. (By the way, you don’t have to be fit to start marital arts training – you become fit as you train. And you don’t have to be young. We have had students ranging from 13 to over 60 join our classes.) more
