Rule Reminder: Times to kiai or kiap: on the last exercise of a set (usually #10), when you switch stances, change direction, where required in your form, any time you go into a fighting stance, and when landing a technique on your sparring partner. Show us your fighting spirit with strong kiai and kiaps!

Weekly Challenge: Practice something you learned from the seminars 3 days this week. If you didn’t go to the seminars, go over your mental requirements at least 3 days this week.

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.
