Rule Reminder: Please ask an adult’s permission before you practice at home. The adult will help you make sure that the space you’ve chosen is safe to practice in. Please do not ever make your own “weapons” by pulling branches off your parents’ or neighbors’ trees.

Weekly Challenge: We’re working on moving basics, sparring, and self-defense this week. Your weekly challenge is to practice a self-defense technique with an adult at home. Did it work? Did you need to change anything in order to make it work? Practicing on different sizes and types of people will help you be a more flexible fighter!

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.
