Synopsis

Karate for Kids by Vince Morris, Aidan Trimble

This is a karate book aimed specifically at children. It is all too easy to permanently damage a young person's body by trying to make him or her train in the same way as an adult. This book, aimed at the 10-14 year age group, shows how children can train and learn safely and successfully, on their own terms and at their own speed. As well as covering all the moves, blocks, kicks and punches, the book answers questions about the history and traditions of karate, the grading system, what to wear and diet. It includes aspects of the sport such as self-defence, sportsmanship and the control of fear are included, as well as advice on rules and competitions. This book should help every junior karate fan to form good and lasting habits to take him into adulthood.
