From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-5-Though some information is scatted throughout these books, readers expecting to learn about martial arts may be disappointed to find that their focus is on good habits martial arts practitioners may develop, such as concentration and self-discipline. Generalizations abound and the circular arguments turn back on each other repeatedly. For example, Good Habits preaches, "Martial arts can help you get rid of bad habits and start good ones"; "Martial arts can help you make good habits"; and "Martial arts class is one place where you'll learn a lot of good habits." The didactic focus and repetitive text make for slow going, though large colorful photos add some appeal. Fact boxes briefly describe various martial arts, including a few less well-known forms such as Brazilian capoeira and eskrima from the Philippines. There's a commendable focus on inclusiveness; mention is made of Paralympic judo champion Ian Rose.α(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal. LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

From Booklist:

The practice of martial arts isn’t just about punching, kicking, and chopping. As the titles in the Junior Martial Arts series indicate, you need inner strength to be at the top of your game. The skills covered in Confidence can be built through competition, positive thoughts, and challenging yourself, both on the mat and in school. While these titles are helpful individually, the information repeats from book to book, so all are not necessary for purchase. Some kids may find the design of the series to be a little dated, and the pages chock-a-block, but the focus on self-improvement in martial-arts practice and everyday life is a good one and sets kids up for success. Grades 4-6. --Ann Kelley
