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!
Check out our ongoing youth and outreach programs to learn more. Do know of a group in your community that would benefit from martial arts, contact us today with your outreach ideas.

There’s something crucial about a young female understanding her own empowerment. You can help girls and boys in the Appian Way Mercy Housing apartments learn confidence and body positive empowerment through martial arts by donating today. Just $75 dollars provides two children participating in the program with uniforms and belts so they can be a part of the Quantum family.

You can support Quantum families to help parents and kids participate in an activity that will keep them close and inspire them to make the world a better place.
Quantum offers scholarships to families in need and significant family discounts so that siblings and parents can find strength in training together.
Quantum will once again be taking part in the Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG event. This is a one-day giving extravaganza where you can join thousands of others in contributing to charities and nonprofits you support.
Last year, Quantum raised over $6,000 from generous donors, and this year we’re hoping to raise $7,000 with your support! The Quantum leadership has stepped up and created a matching fund of $3,000 to bring us almost halfway to our goal. And with your contributions, we can reach our goal and keep growing and strengthening our community!
Every $75 buys two kids uniforms for our outreach programs, $150 buys colored belts for one session at Lake Washington Girls Middle School, and $500 provides a new uniform and a year of classes for a child on scholarship at our dojo. These are the real effects of your generosity, and they reach further every time!
Please, join us on May 10th, 2017 and donate!
