Karate For Kids Book Review

Author: Robin L. Rielly

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!
