The city of South Lake Tahoe Parks & Recreation Depart-ment is offering martial arts classes.

Tae Kwon Do Karate and Arnis Escrima Kali are taught by instructors Chris and Rick Maglinong, who have been teaching for the South Lake Tahoe recreation department since 1976.

Tae Kwon Do is a Korean martial art that has been developed through centuries of eastern civilization.

Today, Tae Kwon Do has evolved into not only the most effective method of weaponless self-defense but an intricate art, an exciting sport and a method of maintaining physical fitness.

This class is designed to teach self-defense, coordination and self-confidence. It is a continuing course for beginners through advanced students.

Arnis is a Filipino martial art. Students will learn single and double stick techniques including disarm, twirling, sparring drills and bare-handed applications.

Tae Kwon Do classes for ages 7 to 15 are from 4:14 to 5:15 p.m. and for ages 15 and over are from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Arnis classes are from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays.

The next six-week session of classes will begin Nov. 30.

Sign up for this program at the Recreation Complex, 1180 Rufus Allen Blvd.
