Rule Reminder: Do not ask to test. This shows respect for our judgement, maturity, patience, and honor. You may ask what you need to work on to be able to test, but when you do so, make sure that you are already putting in lots of practice, time, and effort. At NWSMA, testing is not just a matter of knowing your material. We like to see gains in skill at each belt level, and sometimes, a student just needs more time at a certain belt to increase their overall level of skill.

Weekly Challenge: Did you turn in a goal for 2016 yet? Make sure you do so!

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.
