Rule Reminder: Safety first! If your partner is going too hard, you must let them know. This is not weakness; it is acknowledging differences in size, rank, skill, the body’s condition that moment, chronic injury, and pain tolerance. If you don’t say anything, that person may never get any feedback and the problem will continue. In this way, we are ALL taking responsibility for our own safety and the safety of other students during sparring.

Weekly Challenge: Catch yourself making an excuse! We all go through our daily lives making small excuses for things. Why not turn that energy into actually DOING things??? Expect better from yourself.

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.
