Weekly Update: 10/7-10/12

Class this week is on a normal schedule Mon, Thurs, Fri. Wed, there is no class (2nd Wednesday of the month), and Sat, because of the Arnis/Sai seminars, there will only be one class from 10-11 am for all ages/ranks.

Maybe if they'd used I Statements, this conflict would have been avoided...

Rule Reminder: Please bow when you enter/leave the training hall. Bow to say hello to all black belts.

Weekly Challenge: Work on cleaning up your front stance motion. Stay low (no up-down movement), and do not allow your lead foot to turn out before you step (can lead to knee RSI). Focus on pushing down with the lead leg, squeezing the legs together, and straightening the back leg as you land.

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.
