What’s Going On Week of 2/17-2/22 2014

Class this week is on a normal schedule Mon, Wed, and Thurs. Fri and Sat are cancelled due to a community event going on at the hall–but practice your forms anyway!!

Tournament Practice: If you’re thinking about doing the tournament on March 29th, choose your 2 forms. Practice at least once every day, if not 3-5 times, for each form. A form takes less then 2 minutes to do (usually), so this adds up to a mere 20 minutes if you do two forms 5 times each. If you’re going to spar, work on angles, combinations, kiaps, and control.

Rule Reminder: Upper belts must treat lower belts with respect. If you’re teaching, take your students seriously, answer questions kindly, and do not dismiss their concerns. It should go without saying, but do not abuse your authority.

Weekly Challenge: Practice your tournament forms at least twice a day outside of class. If you’re not planning to go to the tournament, practice your form and an old form at least twice a day outside of class.

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.
