Rules & Policies

 

PAYMENTS & REGISTRATION

  1. 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.
  2. 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). Note: This is only for PNMAA — any fees (registration fees, tuition, open gym, birthday parties, etc.) associated with Ground Zero Gymnastics are separate from PNMAA.
  3. 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.
  4. All fees are non-refundable.
  5. There is a $55 NSF charge for every returned check.
  6. All tuition prices include Washington State Sales Tax.
  7. We accept cash and check payments.

  6. During Phase 2/Phase 3, all classes will be taught observing physical distancing, small class sizes (1 to 3 students), and non-contact.
  7. Hand sanitizer is always available.

  9. If our Region/County enters into Phase 1, PNMAA will be closed for classes until we are allowed to move into Phase 2.

PROGRAMS

  1. 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.
  2. More programs may be added, changed or deleted in the future at the discretion of PNMAA’s management.
  3. Adding classes not on the schedule is a possibility if there is a guaranteed 4 student minimum.  Call PNMAA for further details.

MAKE-UP CLASSES

  1. Once you have purchased a punch card, you will have 60 days from the time of purchase to attend and use what you have purchased.
  2. 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.
  3. There are no refunds for classes not used prior to the punch card expiration date.

WHAT TO WEAR

  1. For external style martial arts (Wushu Belt Classes), Taiji, Qigong & Self-Defense Basics, all students can choose to wear proper-fitting martial arts shoes.
  2. 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.
  3. Students with long hair must have their hair tied back or in a bun–scrunchies or elastic pony tail holders only.

MISCELLANEOUS

  1. No chewing gum is allowed during PNMAA classes.

  3. Please help keep the PNMAA studio clean! Your help is greatly appreciated.
  4. Private lessons are available for any individual who wants one-on-one instruction!  Please contact an instructor for setting up a time.
  5. 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!

  1. Observers are welcome but must remain in the viewing area.
  2. Please remain quiet and please keep other siblings seated and quiet while viewing class.

WUSHU BELT PROGRAM

  1. 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.
  2. 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).
