Synopsis

Kungfu for Kids by Paul Eng

A fun and accessible introduction to studying kungfu-designed specifically with the interests and capabilities of young martial artists in mind.First time martial arts students are not just starting a program of physical and mental practice. They are entering a new world-one that not only has new rules, new goals, and even new clothing-but that also offers them lots of new opportunities for fun and accomplishment. Kungfu for Kids will help prepare kids to start learning about kungfu and help them practice at home. It includes thorough introductions to the history and philosophy of the techniques, what to expect in the first few classes, how to warm up and practice, and advice on setting goals.With over 75 full-color illustrations, including 40 clearly diagrammed kungfu exercises, along with lots of fun facts and informative sidebars written in kid-friendly jargon-free language, this is the perfect introduction for the younger martial artist.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
