Quantum Martial Arts Seattle was proud to work with Giddens School and Camp Ten Trees in our 2018 summer programs. We brought martial arts and self-defense to students and youth in our community.
We taught a 5-day fun-packed day camp for 25 children ages 5-8 years old at Giddens School in Seattle’s Summer Blast Camp. The kids enjoyed a Jedi day where they made their own lightsabers out of pool noodles. They moved creatively in animal movements day. And they learned about friendship and trust in ninja day, which was complete with costumes and an obstacle course.
At Camp Ten Trees we taught 4 classes of martial arts and self-defense to 8-17 year-old youths who either identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and/or are youth from non-traditional families. The campers learned verbal drills to defend against known and unknown attackers. Then they practiced physical drills with shield and kick targets. At the end of each session, the campers were invited to break boards. What energy and enthusiasm!
