Weekly Update: 1/14-1/19

All classes are on a normal schedule this week, including Saturday. The Arnis Seminar will take place this Saturday. You can sign up anytime. There will still be regular class from 10-11am Saturday! We hope to see you there for class.

Uniform Reminder: Please wear your belt, uniform pants and jacket. You may wear a plain, school logo, or other martial arts t-shirt. T-shirts must be tucked in. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure all of these items are clean and packed. We know the dojo is sometimes chilly in the winter, so students are welcome to wear appropriate footwear (sneakers) and a lightweight jacket until the building warms up.

Weekly Challenge: Practice side kicks every day this week, focusing on good foot position. Keep those toes down and pulled back!

Sensei has declared two New Year’s goals for all NWSMA students: improving chamber hand and pull back hands, and consistently keeping knees over toes in front stances. Keep this in mind when you practice at home.

Finally, a shout out to our Karate blue and purple belts for their great effort in class this week! You guys are looking better and better every day, keep up the hard work!
