What do you get when you cross a Hell’s Angel with a marine and a musician? Master Rachael Evans of course.
Master Rachael Evans runs the nonprofit martial arts school, Quantum Dojo, in San Francisco, California. And in this episode, she shares her unique start in how she got into the martial arts; how she opened up her school, Quantum; and provides information on the programs and classes they provide, from adults to children. Rachael really highlights the idea that the martial arts are all about being a community — in fact, she says it best herself:
“We’re a community hub. We’re a place for young men to come and be challenged to step up to growing up. We’re a place where young women can come and learn to be powerful and find their voice. We’re a place for families to come and develop themselves physically and learn this language of martial arts [and] enrich their experience when they go home...”
To hear more, tune into this week’s episode about the Quantum Dojo and Rachael’s experience in the martial arts.
