What Makes Us Different

The American Cane System was developed by Grand Master Mark Shuey Sr. as a system of self-defense for a vulnerable age group. GM Shuey created this system for students of the cane with certification of instructors for his system.

Mark's system's of cane fighting, cane self-defense and cane exercise caught the attention of the world at large, and "The American Cane System" as well as his "Cane Fu", "Cane Ja", "Cane Chi", "Silver Dragons" and "YogaPlay" systems are being taught by Certified instructors throughout the world.

At North Lake Tahoe Martial Arts, we offer traditional Tae Kwon Do instruction for all levels from "Little Dragons" through Black Belt. We also offer classes using the cane for self-defense and exercise, as well as YogaPlay and Zumba Fitness classes.
