Welcome, Dawn and Emily! I'm transplanted from Oakland, CA and live just south of Seattle now, in Tukwila. I just started taking beginner kung fu classes at an all-women's studio in Seattle called Seven Star. They also teach self-defense, and a series for that is about to start. They are a wonderful resource if either of you is interested.
Blessed Be, Amanda
"I love myself the way I am, and still I want to grow;
But change outside can only come when deep inside I know:
I'm beautiful and capable of being the best me I can,
And I love myself just the way I am."
