What’s Going On Week of 2/24-3/1 2014

Class this week is on a normal schedule ALL WEEK. Pizza Night will take place at 7pm on Friday night (so no 7-8pm class). Join us for all-you-can eat pizza & pop for $5/person. Family members welcome!

Promotions: Congratulations to our two newest orange belts!

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.

Calendar notes:

Rule Reminder: Do not allow your belt to touch the floor unless you are wearing it. This is a traditional way of respecting your belt & the efforts you’ve put forth to get it!

Weekly Challenge: Basics and sparring! Try to work in a few minutes of practicing moving in front stance every day. During class time sparring, pick a kick (for example, spinning side kick) and see how many times you can “tag” your partner with it.

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.
