Hello PAWMA Members!
We hope this finds you grounded, thriving, and enjoying the bright spots in your training and day to day life. I’m writing to share a bit more about camp - please read on!
As we shared earlier this year - we will once again be hosting camp online. CYO Camp has graciously agreed to push forward our donation another year, and we are exploring dates for Fall 2022. We will continue to keep the membership updated when we have more information, and eagerly look forward to training together in person!

With all the time I haven't been commuting this year, I've been reading. And of course, I want to read about other women martial artists. I've gotten some picks from one of PAWMA's teachers. Here's a list of women we have been reading about:.

When a new PAWMA Board convened about a year and a half ago, little did we know that the whole world would shift. And we shifted with it! We have been fortunate to have collective skill sets adept in using technology, so that we could plan not one, but now two online camp experiences.
As we continue to adapt, we hope that some of you will join us for the ride. At the conclusion of our next camp, August 26-29, 2021, three of our board members will be signing off from their leadership duties. Another of our members stepped down earlier to grow their family (congrats, Veronica!). With this in mind, we will have four vacancies on our Board of Directors in the fall of 2021.
