A traditional dojo with a Seattle flair
Being a traditional dojo, we wear uniforms and have a standard of respect for our training space and each other. Come observe a class and you will hear shouts of “Yes sir” or “Yes ma’am” interspersed with careful explanations, cheers of “Great job!”, and laughter. Our workouts are focused learning and fun!

You will hear these words shouted at the beginning of every class. They are the principles we hope to embody.
The Space to Learn
Our dojo was built by our members. This allowed us to create a space that fit us perfectly and gives us pride. From the white canvas mat to the white walls, the dojo represents a blank canvas for your workout. Every day is different, and every day we embrace our selves and our unlimited potential. When we enter and exit the mat, we bow towards the center to show respect for all the hard work and mindfulness that has been put into it.
Your martial arts journey starts with learning new techniques and refining execution of familiar ones taught in our general and basics classes. Whether you are 6 or 60, martial arts training improves confidence and well-being. You can learn more about our class schedule here and training programs here.
One of the unique aspects of our school is that these classes each start with 45 minutes to 1 hour of instruction in stretching and calisthenics. Safety is important to us. Our warm-up exercises are specifically designed to improve strength and flexibility so that you will build core strength and lengthen your muscles to decrease the risk of injury as you ask your body to move in new ways. In kid’s classes, the warm up is 30 minutes long and often led by intermediate level kid students to allow Quantum kids to develop leadership skills.
You and/or your child may train at your own pace and our teachers are experienced in helping students modify movements if needed for physical challenges.
The Quantum style of martial arts blends Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido, Boxing, Wing Chun, and others to create a unique and intense approach to external martial arts focused on the mind/body/spirit connection.
The style is the creation of our Chief Instructor, Master Rachael Evans, who has been exploring and expanding her martial arts for 30 years.
