Rule Reminder: Safety during sparring is #1! Any student of any rank can ask any other student of any rank to slow down or hit more lightly during sparring. If your partner doesn’t seem to be honoring your request, please stop sparring immediately and find the instructor in charge of your group.

Weekly Challenge: Clean your room! Small things add up quickly: you can start by picking up toys, folding and putting away clothing, neatening bookshelves, then work on changing sheets, vacuuming, Windexing windows, dusting, and emptying trash cans. Parent tip: A Google image search of “bedroom cleaning checklist” can be helpful for kids who need “clean your room” to be made more explicit, concrete, and understandable.

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.
