Follow the adventures of the Black Belt Club as they go on a secret mission to defeat the Death Master in Seven Wheels of Power.


Welcome To The Black Belt Club

Seven Wheels of Power is the first book in the Black Belt Club series of martial arts adventures, which follows four young karate students, Max, Maia, Antonio, and Jamie. In the Seven Wheels of Power, the four members of the BBC must use their martial arts to defeat the Death Master - the darkest force in the universe, which has threatened to end all life and create a world of horror and fear! Pretty scary stuff... even if you have a black belt in karate. As the four work together to defeat the Dark Master, they must each use courage, intelligence and abilities they never even knew they had.


Martial Arts Adventure and Lessons

Seven Wheels of Power is part novel, part comic book and part karate instruction manual. In this first story of the Black Belt Club, you'll follow the adventures of the of the BBC, while learning a bunch of cool karate moves and terms. At the back of the book, you'll find great illustrations of basic karate moves including kicks, punches and blocks.


The Bottom Line

The Black Belt Club series is written by sensei, Dawn Barnes, who has a third-degree black belt and has been teaching kids karate for years. In the Seven Wheels of Power, she does a great job of bringing basic karate instruction into a comic-book novel. You won't learn enough karate from this book to become a black belt, but it's a good book for those who are interested in martial arts or are thinking about taking real karate lessons some day. The reading level is pretty easy, so some readers might find the Seven Wheels of Power a bit too basic. But for martial arts fans who want a great adventure and to learn some karate basics as well, it's a worthwhile read.
