WELCOME! We have had several new students sign up last month & this month. It can be scary or embarrassing to do something new. If you see a new student in class, please introduce yourself and help them feel welcome.

Rule Reminder: Please treat all assistants the same as Sabumnim/Sensei Doris or Sensei/Yudanjanim Caitlin. Teaching is a skill that develops over time, so we ask for respect and patience with new assistants. Upper belts to assist as a way to develop leadership skills and “give back” to the art.
Weekly Challenge: Get on Youtube and watch a video of a form! What style did it come from? Critique it. What was good? What seemed “off” or “incorrect?”
Weather Cancellation Policy Reminder: If school gets cancelled in the Stanwood-Camano school district due to weather, NWSMA classes will also be cancelled. Cancellations will be posted on our Facebook & our Twitter. Not all of our students live in Stanwood-Camano. Don’t take risks to get to class if the weather is different where you are.
We welcome feedback on our website and our teaching! Feel free to email us if you have a comment or question.
