Book Description

A fun and accessible introduction to studying karate—designed specifically with the interests and capabilities of young martial artists in mind.

First time martial arts students are not just starting a program of physical and mental practice. They are entering a new world—one that not only has new rules, new goals, and even new clothing—but that also offers them lots of new opportunities for fun and accomplishment.

Karate for Kids will help prepare kids to start learning about karate and help them practice at home. It includes thorough introductions to the history and philosophy of the techniques, what to expect in the first few classes, how to warm up and practice, and advice on setting goals.

With over 75 full-color illustrations, including 40 clearly diagrammed karate exercises, along with lots of fun facts and informative sidebars written in kid-friendly jargon-free language, this is the perfect introduction for the younger martial artist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book 18 Feb. 2011
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book for my 6 year old grandson who is very keen on Karate, I was having trouble finding anything suitable for his age group. The front cover is very appealing and that and the illustrations kept him happy for ages initially though he is not up to reading it alone yet. I have to read it with him and it gets a bit heavy going,although the descriptions of some of the movements are very detailed (he sometimes expects me to do them with him)! However I am sure he will get lots of pleasure reading it for himself later on.
