We’re Reopening, June 2nd!

Hello all,

As per Governor Inslee’s Stage 2 order yesterday (May 19) we will reopen on June 2nd with strict guidelines in place. Details below.

We will continue to provide Zoom classes, so you are not required to come to the school if you are not comfortable.

  • First and foremost, if you are at high risk please do not come in.
  • If you are feeling sick, especially if you are showing COVID symptoms stay at home.
  • When you arrive at the school you are required to wash or sanitize your hands. Sanitizer will be provided at the front desk.
  • You MUST bring your own weapons. School weapons will be off-limits. If you do not have a weapon they can be purchased at the school.
  • We must maintain social distancing; therefore, we will not be doing sparring, chin na, or sticky hands. At least for the next few weeks or a month.
  • Further to social distancing, only a few students at a time are allowed in the back to get their belongings from the shelves. And please no lingering to chat. You can talk outside.
  • On our side, we are committed to keeping the school sanitized and clean.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thank you,

Master Sarah

How One Seattle Business Woman is Staying Relevant During the Covid-19 Pandemic

When Washington state issued the stay at home order in March Kung Fu school owner Sarah Yoffe took action. With the help of Evelyn Dickinson of Logical Alternative she set up an iPad tablet and a laptop, signed up for a Zoom professional account, and started streaming her classes for her students.

“It’s been more successful than I hoped,” Sarah said, “The pandemic has spurred me on to update our online presence. We also set up online payments through the website.” Recordings of the classes are also available to the students for a week.

“This has been a great opportunity,” she said, “and we will continue with streaming the classes even after the restrictions are lifted.”

The Shaolin Center of Seattle is one of the longest-running women-owned martial arts schools that embraces all genders in Seattle. It provides kung fu and tai chi training for students ages 8 to 80. It has operated in Seattle and Shoreline for fifteen years.

“We’ve faced rough times before and we’ll get through this one, too,” Sarah said.

New students are still welcome. Go to https://www.shaolinseattle.com/new-students/ and start today.
