Rule Reminder: If the Stanwood-Camano school district cancels school due to weather, NWSMA will also be closed.

Weekly Challenge: Think about this: if you only practice martial arts for 2 hours a week, you get ~100 hours of experience per year. Some people believe it takes 10,000 hours of practice to become an expert–at 2 hours a week, that would take nearly 100 years! Please renew your personal commitment to consistent attendance this week. Show up for class as usual, even if you are off from school for holidays or parent conferences. (Please don’t come to class if you’re sick!)

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.
