Rule Reminder: NWSMA is not responsible for items left at the dojo. Please take a moment to check that all your belongings are with you when you leave!

Weekly Challenge: Parents, we frequently tell students that martial arts is only to be used as a last option in an “emergency” situation. This week, help your kids define what an emergency is, according to your family’s beliefs and values and your student’s age/maturity level. It could be as simple as a brief conversation in the car or at dinnertime. The goal is to help your student understand when using martial arts might be acceptable, as well as allowing them to mentally prepare for various situations.

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.
