Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
Grounded in the Okinawan/Japanese Shotokan karate tradition, this book provides an accessible source of information on the complexities of striking techniques in this form of the martial arts. The introductory chapter offers historical and background material rendered simple for young readers. Subsequent chapters address warm-ups, basic and advanced strikes, and safety. Also included are a glossary, reading list, index, and lists of resources and Internet sites. Part of the publisher's "Martial Arts" series; other titles include Karate Punches, Karate Kicks, and Karate Blocks, with some material repeated across all the books. Trainees in related but distinct martial arts (Tae Kwan Do, Aikido) will find some differences between their studio forms and steps and the moves in this book.
