Seven Star Bali Trip

By Ellen Eades
Seven Star Women's Kung Fu

A group of eight women from Seven Star Women's Kung Fu in Seattle recently had an epic vacation in Bali. Thanks to Marti McCaleb, who organized a group buy-in on a vacation at Villa Pantai in Amed, Bali, at an auction benefitting the Seattle Men's and Women's Choruses, we spent an amazing week eating delicious food, diving and snorkeling, hiking to mountain temples, exploring and enjoying one another's excellent company.

We are committed to encouraging women and girls to train, and to promoting an atmosphere of respect and support for women martial artists of all styles. Membership is open to everyone who supports the full and active participation of women in the martial arts.
