Rule Reminder: It isn’t very polite to ask if you can get a stripe, or ask if you can test. If you have been waiting a long time for a stripe or belt rank, try putting forth a little more effort and attention to detail in class. Ask a black belt for a tip, and trust that your Sensei’s will ask you to demonstrate skills or test when we believe you are ready. Patience, grasshoppa!

Weekly Challenge: It’s Teacher Appreciation Week! Our children spend large amounts of their formative lives with their teachers, and our teachers really care about what they do (believe me, I’ve sat in enough teachers’ lounges at lunchtime–all they talk about is their students!) Take a moment to simply say, “Thank you,” and recognize the role teachers play in our individual lives, as well as our greater culture and society.

Weather Cancellation Policy: 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.
