You wan to be more active this year, but you aren't interested in joining the soccer team at school. Don't worry - there are a ton of other great ways to get in shape, and karate's one of them! Karate for Kids is a great book to get you started in this ancient self-defense activity. Check it out!


Getting Started

Before you jump into any activity, it's always a good idea to read up on it to make sure that you know what you're getting yourself into, and so you don't get hurt. Karate for Kids lays out the basics so you will be prepared when you arrive for your first karate lesson. Learn about the uniform you'll need, proper etiquette for the dojo (that's the word for karate school) and different karate commands that you'll probably need to know when you head to class.


Tips for Class

One of the coolest things about Karate for Kids is all the sidebars and info boxes that you will find on almost every page. These are filled with little hints or tips on how to do master moves, memorize commands or even proper meditation techniques. Karate for Kids is also a very visual book with lots of pictures and diagrams all the way through.


The Bottom Line

While Karate for Kids is a great way to introduce yourself to the sport, it certainly can't compare to actually taking a class. But, if you're interested in taking a class or are already involved with karate, this book is a great resource to have!

    The first book that was read to me by my learning buddy in Sunnybrook School was Harry potter and the Sorcerer's stone. I was bowled over by the book and it took me to a different world. Harry, Ron and Hermione became my friends as well.

    No. Edit: To clarify, not everyone's opinions matter on every topic. For example, my opinion on how I feel about quantum mechanics doesn't matter because I know almost nothing about it, and I definitely don't know it on a level where I could describe it accurately with math. Or, if someone is to show time and time again that they have no idea what they're talking about for a specific subject, their opinion about it obviously matters less since they're most likely just willfully uninformed. For worldly things like you might see in the Dear Dish-It section, still not everyone's opinions matter though input, even if silly, is usually a good thing.

    While there are quote ''good opinions'' there are supposibly ''bad opinions'' So does every one's opinion truly matter? dispite what they taught us in school.
