New manuals! Rewritten Karate manuals for students age 5-12, under purple belt. (Click this to see a post about why we made this change).

If you haven’t yet, check out the “Current Students” tab. There are vocab study lists, homework helper sheets, and a “Sensei’s Bookshelf” recommended reading list (for those of you who can’t figure out what to do on days we don’t have class).

Calendar notes:

Click “More” for reminders & the weekly challenge!

Rule Reminder: Students must have a positive attitude and maintain self-control. No swearing or using negative language. An NWSMA tradition is that negative language includes “words of weakness:” ouch/ow, tired, can’t, etc.

Weekly Challenge: Start thinking about the school supply drive, which will take place in July. Keep an eye out for sales, or see if you have anything extra lying around.

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.
