“FIRST WEEK FREE” RULES
- Applies to new students only; not returning or current students.
- The free week starts on any day that a class is offered for that particular program and concludes 7 days later (ex: first day starts on a Wednesday, the free week concludes the following Tuesday).
- When a new student completes their First Week Free classes, they can then purchase class punch cards.
PAYMENTS & REGISTRATION
- PNMAA offers class punch cards for purchase. See our Pricing tab for more information. Note: one punch card per student; non-transferrable, and non-refundable. There is a 60 day expiration date for 4 class punch cards and a 90 day expiration date for 6 class, 8 class or wushu belt class punch cards based on the time of their purchase.
- A non-refundable registration fee is due upon enrollment into any program or class. The price is $35 per individual or $50 per family (immediate family members only, not extended family).
- The registration fee is good for one full year from the date of initial enrollment. If a student is enrolled continuously (i.e., month after month) in a PNMAA program after one year, the registration fee will be waived. However, if a student lapses enrollment after the year period, the registration fee must be paid again upon re-enrollment.
- Discounts at PNMAA: We offer a 10% sibling or other immediately family member total tuition discount. We also offer a 10% military discount off of the total tuition amount (must provide proof of military service).
- All fees are non-refundable.
- There is a $25 NSF charge for every returned check.
- All tuition prices include Washington State Sales Tax.
- We accept cash, check and credit card payments.
- Programs, classes, dates, times, costs, etc., are always subject to change. We are always evolving and trying to meet our customer’s needs the best we can but we will do our best to inform paying participants of any changes.
- More programs may be added, changed or deleted in the future at the discretion of PNMAA’s management.
- There will always be a unique summer schedule that is different from the regular “school year” schedule and it is usually available by June 1st.
- Adding classes not on the schedule is a possibility if there is a guaranteed 4 student minimum. Call PNMAA for further details.
- Once you have purchased a punch card, you will have either 60 days from the time of purchase (for 4 class punch cards) or 90 days from the time of purchase (6 class punch cards, 8 class punch cards or wushu belt program punch cards) to attend and use what you have purchased.
- If you miss a class and your punch card is still active, simply attend the next class offered. We understand that life happens which is why we have adopted the more flexible punch card program versus monthly tuition.
- There are no refunds for classes not used prior to the punch card expiration date.

WHAT TO WEAR
- For external style martial arts (Lil Dragons, Tigers, Eagles, Adult, Family Class, Wushu Belt Classes), Taiji, & Self-Defense Basics, all students can choose to wear proper-fitting martial arts shoes. You also have the option of going bare foot. No socks-only out on the mat flooring for any classes.
- For the classes listed above, it is suggested that participants wear loose-fitting and comfortable garments such as sweat pants, shorts, yoga pants, T-shirts, etc. Please no clothing with buckles, snaps, or zippers, and definitely no jeans or other tight fitting pants that may split during flexibility.
- Students with long hair must have their hair tied back or in a bun. Scrunchies or elastic pony tail holders only.
- Please no jewelry allowed for any classes, especially rings, necklaces, or earrings.
- Students enrolled in the tumbling classes, parkour classes, or the flexibility/conditioning classes are required to not have shoes or socks (i.e., bare foot only). The only exception would be gymnastics shoes which can be ordered on-line.
- Muay Thai Boxing: Please wear shorts, a team T-shirt (available for sale $30 each from Coach Gabi Maxwell), and please note that you will be required to provide your own boxing gloves, shin guards, a mouth guard and Muay Thai wraps.
- No chewing gum is allowed in PNMAA.
- PNMAA is a smoke-free zone. No smoking. We also ask that you do not smoke outside of the studio as the smoke will enter into the building every time the door is opened and closed.
- There is one restroom on-site at PNMAA. It is located at the back of the studio space. If one must access the restroom, please carefully walk around the outside of any class without disruption. The restroom is a unisex handicap accessible restroom.
- Please help keep PNMAA clean! Your help is greatly appreciated.
- Private lessons are available for any individual who wants one-on-one instruction! Please contact an instructor for setting up a time.
- Bad weather or electrical outages: We will do our best to inform families if there are electrical outages, other emergencies or if we have to close due to bad weather conditions (remember snow?). Usually if the Mount Vernon School District issues a Snow Day, PNMAA will most likely honor this as well. We encourage parents and participants to call or text to make sure and to remember that safety is important!
FAMILY MEMBER OBSERVIATION
- Observers are welcome but must remain in the lobby area.
- Please remain quiet and please keep other siblings seated and quiet while viewing class.
- Please do not talk to your child while they are participating in class.
- If you would like to talk to your child’s instructor and there is not enough time in between classes, please feel free to contact them via email, text or phone call. Every attempt will be made to respond as quickly as possible.
WUSHU BELT PROGRAM
- PNMAA has Wushu Belt Program for those more advanced students who have shown they are ready to progress to the next level. Students must have instructor approval to be in these classes and must be willing to participate in the “Giving Back” portion of the Wushu Belt Program.
- A portion of the Wushu Belt Program is on this website. As the student tests and moves up to the next level, their next level requirements will be provided at that time (much like unlocking a new video game level).
- Students are encouraged to participate in community events representing PNMAA such as parades, PNMAA student demonstrations, and even outdoor practices (such as the Waterfront area). Information about events will be provided when the time is appropriate.
- Martial arts students will be encouraged to attend local martial arts competitions either as competitors or observers.
