What’s Going On Week of 12/16-12/21

Class this week is on a normal schedule Mon, Wed, Thurs, and Fri. Sat is cancelled due to an event at the hall. Congratulations to all our testers! Everyone passed, and we have 1 new yellow, 1 advanced yellow, 1 orange, and 1 purple belt in Karate, and 1 new yellow, 3 advanced green, 1 blue, 1 advanced blue, and 2 brown belts in TKD. Wowza!

Food Drive Competition END! On Monday, a little after 4 pm, Fudo Yama will arrive at NWSMA with their students & donations. We’ll do an official count, and then we’ll all take the food over to the food bank for a photo. If you can, please show up at 4 wearing your full uniform and (if you own one) a Santa hat.

This is how it feels to pass a test!

Rule Reminder: If you are injured, please participate in class by doing as much as you are able. Substitute exercises: if running bothers you, walk brisk laps. If push-ups bother you, do them on the wall or Australian style. Skipping warmups altogether is not helpful for your training. Please do as much as possible.

Weekly Challenge: Start thinking about your goals for 2014! What steps will you take to achieve them?

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. Please 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.
