Rule Reminder: To our upper belts: if you and another upper belt are teaching a class together and have a disagreement about something, please have that disagreement privately. You are welcome to have the students stretch or hold waiting stance while you withdraw to the kitchen to discuss. Upper belts should work together as a team. Anyone who uses their rank to be disrespectful to others is not worthy of their rank.

Weekly Challenge: Thank your parents for something this week–either for sending you to camp, or for paying for your martial arts lessons and helping you keep your uniform clean, etc.

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-CamanoPlease 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.
