Seven Star End of the Year Giving

Annual Giving for Seven Star!

For 33 years Seven Star Women’s Kung Fu has carried out its mission to improving the health, safety, confidence and well being of women in the Seattle area through self-defense and in martial arts. At this end-of-year season, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Seven Star.

Throughout our organization’s existence we have provided free, onsite childcare, free sign language interpreter services, scholarships to help those who need it, and dues based on a sliding scale. We have never turned away any woman or girl due to an inability to pay.

We believe in our mission and ability to help women find strength and confidence through learning practical self-defense skills and martial arts. We could not offer the support that we do were it not for our community of supporters: current and former students, friends and family of Seven Star – People like you.

Kajukenbo is an eclectic martial art from Hawaii that combines techniques from Tang Soo Do (Korean karate), Kodokan judo, jujitsu, Kosho Ryu kenpo, and Shaolin kung fu into a style that is effective in real-life situations. Kajukenbo does not rely solely on size or strength, making it well-suited for women. Seven Star’s style is also influenced by aikido, wun hop kuen do, and the unique experiences of our instructors. We include self-defense training throughout our curriculum.

Seven Star empowers women to train by offering sliding scale dues based on income, scholarships, ASL interpreting, and free on-site childcare for moms while they train. There are no contracts, annual fees, or expensive uniforms.
