STAPLES -- Staples Motley Community Education is offering a Firearm Safety Course and Kum-Do Class.
Firearm Safety Class

The cost is $5. Preregistration is required and can be made by calling Staples Motley Community Education at 894-2497.
Kum-Do, or Asian fencing, is more than 3,000 years old and was at first practiced only by Korean royalty. Applied to modern times, this art teaches people how to protect themselves effectively with a broomstick, cane, umbrella or other such everyday item.
As practiced today, Kum-Do is neither a martial art nor sport, but a spiritual discipline. Its purpose is to settle the problems of life -- physical and mental.
Instructor will be Francisco Jimenez. Cost is $40 for a five-week session. This includes Bokken. The first class will be held Friday, April 20, in the Staples Elementary School gym.
