Cane Masters offers self defense systems using the cane for martial artists, seniors, and the disabled, and handcrafted custom American hardwood canes.
Cane Masters is owned and operated by GM Mark Shuey Sr. He created Cane Masters International Association for students of the cane and to certify instructors for his system. Due to articles in the media, like the article by Jennifer Levitz in the Saturday, July 12, 2008 edition of The Wall Street Journal entitled “Everybody Is ‘Cane Fu’ Fighting At Senior Centers, “So Watch Out (Older People Get Healthful Exercise And Learn to Wield a Ready Deterrent)”, and interviews on major TV sports and entertainment programs, Mark’s system’s of cane fighting, cane self defense and cane exercise have been brought to the attention of the world at large, and his “American Cane System” as well as his “Cane Fu”, “Cane Ja”, “Cane Chi”, “Silver Dragons” and his “YogaPlay” systems are being taught by Cane Master instructors throughout the world.
At GM Shuey’s 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. Group or private lessons are available.
