Calendar notes:

Click “More” for reminders & the weekly challenge!

Rule Reminder: Students, please do not allow yourself to be distracted by anything on the sidelines. Do not look at the door as it opens, do not talk to others on the sidelines, and focus on the instructor or task you are working with. Eye focus is a key factor in forms judging at tournaments, take the opportunity to practice it now!

Weekly Challenge: Do 100 punches from horse stance, every day this week. Focus on pulling hand, pushing the knees out, dropping the shoulders and engaging the dorssi, punching the solar plexus, and using the hips. Whew.

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.
