Format: Paperback
I was very disappointed with this book as it is very limited in the number of games and imagination . Some suggested games require props , which increase the luggage that needs to be transported to and from the Dojo, which is why suggestions using Gis and Belts would have been preferable. I find this book extremely expensive for what it offers, especially when comparing it to other children's game books

HASH(0xa0aa8054) out of 5 stars Good but Repetitive Ideas, Lackluster Execution 6 Sept. 2008
By Mongoose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Good - "Martial Arts: Games and Activites for Children" is a good book from which to glean ideas to keep training fun and interesting for the little ones. It incorporates many practical aspects of martial arts, which I like quite a bit. They advocate using common do jang equipment, which is great (too many books/systems, I've found, require the instructor to purchase new equipment, often conveniently sold by the author!).

The Bad - Unfortunately, I found some of the ideas either too silly or too similar in nature to other ideas. There are only SO many ways you can throw/kick a focus mitt to knock down a blocker or kick shield. Also, some of the exercises don't really apply martial arts/self defense techniques. (If this sounds contradictory to what I mentioned above, it is because of my use of "most/some" vs. "all/none". In other words, some of the activities involve kicking a focus mitt across the floor to knock down a target. IMO, the kick used in this game/activity isn't a technically sound maneuver.)

The Ugly - The photos and pictures are a little lacking in both visual "pop" and pedagogy.

An overall decent resource, especially if you're a new instructor or a seasoned vet looking for a fresh way to teach old precepts to children while keeping them invovled

HASH(0xa0a93174) out of 5 stars Spiced up my martial arts classes 18 Jan. 2008
By Wendy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used this manual to spice up my martial arts classes and make learning fun for my young students. I have to say, it worked wonderfully! Practice became a lot more enjoyable, as my students started to see the value of their training. Their techniques improved because suddenly there was good reason to work on them. Also, after I started using the games and activities, I didn't have any more drop-outs! Students LOVED coming to class because they knew they were going to get to do some really fun stuff and have a blast! This book helped me create a win-win situation between teaching effectively and making the classroom fun.

HASH(0xa0a93a08) out of 5 stars Very practical and fun 4 Jan. 2011

Was able to take the info right into our taekwondo program; lots of fun ideas and very practical- age appropriate for students of all ages.

I do like the content and some of the ideas it has in it. Having said that, the book is small (useful pages 7-53). I have several martial arts books and have paid like prices for much thicker books. I will check for this the next time I order a book

not what I thought it would be. I was looking for games for smaller/less experienced children. I guess it's a good book for someone who works with children who do martial arts regularly
