Our Training Hall – Then to now…

Seattle White Tiger Kung Fu logoWe stumbled upon some of our original photos.  Every day we look around the hall and think about all of the things that are still in need of being completed.  Rarely do we take the time to look at what we started with compared to where we are now.  As martial artists and as people we truly don’t know where we are unless we take stock of where we came from.  It was an uplifting experience to see and be able to share these photos today.

It started with the end of one path..

We even got mats in!  A luxury that the old Lynnwood studio was not able to have.

Thank you to all of the students, parents, friends and family that have made the studio possible!  We will keep trying to find new ways to improve the hall as well as keep training fun and challenging!  We couldn’t do it without everyone’s help.

Sincerely,

Seattle White Tiger Kung Fu Instructors
