What’s Going On Week of 3/10-3/15 2014

Class this week is on a normal schedule Mon, Thurs, and Fri. Wed and Sat are both cancelled.

Please help new students feel welcome by introducing yourself to them before class!

Tournament: If you’re 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: Before class starts, you may: practice forms, ask questions, stretch, practice drills with a partner, make sure your belongings are tucked neatly under the benches, or study your vocabulary & requirements sheets. You may NOT run or fool around.

Weekly Challenge: This week, try to choose a partner who is out of your comfort zone to work with. Your best learning will take place with this type of partner.

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.
