Karate Kids Connection-Tae Kwon Do Style is an at-home Tae Kwon Do martial arts training program designed for everyone, ages 6 and older, and developed specifically for those who want to review what they are learning in their own Tae Kwon Do classes or for those who cannot afford monthly training fees and weekly after-care school costs. This is the first program of the first planned series of programs and shows the beginning basics of Tae Kwon Do, with easy-to-learn, step-by-step instructions.

This first training book, DVD and video introduce the basic warm-up stretches (the same stretches which professional athletes use), aerobic and strength exercises, such as proper form for push-ups and sit-ups, the basic Tae Kwon Do fighting stances, introduction to basic counting in the Korean language, 10 blocking drills, punching techniques, and the first white belt form (poomse). In addition, the DVD/video and companion training books feature and describe how to perform the very popular Round-house kick, demonstrate and teach the first 1-Step self-defense technique as it is learned in class as well as its application shown in the Frisbee in the Park video clip (real life usage.) You will learn all about proper Tae Kwon Do stances, forms (poomse) learned at each rank as you advance, and special self-defense techniques called 1-Step Sparring or 1-Step Self-Defense techniques, all shown from several angles for faster and easier learning. Karate Kids Connection teaches you how to begin each self-defense, follow through with the defense, end the self-defense, and safely encourage any attacker to end the attack and leave the scene without needlessly causing significant harm to anyone. Parents appreciate the Character-Building advice and Safety-Tip-of-the-Day included in every program. Proper manners and respect are emphasized which includes learning the Martial Arts Creed and saying and following the Martial Arts Tenets of courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit. In addition, the companion DVD and downloadable video's main feature presentation include a bonus second video menu entitled "SPECIAL FEATURES" with many video-shorts and some surprises, including Master Barbeau and the Karate Kids demonstrating many martial arts self-defense techniques. These SPECIAL FEATURE videos are entertaining, fun to do, and can be learned for use in everyday real life situations. One of these self-defense techniques is also featured in the first main presentation along with its application in a real life situation.

This first program, available in hard copy book, DVD and downloadable video and eBook (sold separately on Amazon & Kindle Store eBooks), is produced by a 5th degree Tae Kwon Do black belt Master Instructor, and allows both the beginner and advanced student to review or train along with the Karate Kids right in your own home. You don't have to wait until your dojang opens its doors. The downloadable video and eBook can be used on your mobile device anywhere, anytime you want to train. Each training book, available in both English and Spanish, has more than 100 pictures and shows students exactly what to do and explains what not to do and why. Future plans include making the training books available in more languages like French, Korean, Chinese and Japanese. The DVD/video and training book will help any beginner or seasoned martial artist practice, review and eventually learn all specific kicks, blocks and strikes while focusing on special kicks and techniques in each program for easier learning. The advanced student can review what is being learned in local training classes. Children and adults of all ages will enjoy the freedom and ease of training in Tae Kwon Do using the Karate Kids Connection step-by-step training method, and save much training time and money while training at home or wherever you choose according to your own schedule.

This is a great book especially for beginners, and is a great reference for students already taking Tae Kwon Do. The instructions and illustrations are very clear. There are many pictures that show exactly how to prepare and practice each move. I really like the special safety advice and the emphasis on handling bullies, being respectful and making good choices. The book goes well with the DVD of the same title.
