About this title


Written in a simple text and complete with lively, full-color photographs and a glossary, a young reader's introduction to various aspects of karate captures the effort it takes to advance in the sport, as seen from the perspective of a nine-year-old boy.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3?This book is one of few that introduces this martial art to young children. The large, full-color photographs and simple text allow even preschoolers to learn what happens in karate school. The story follows David as he is about to test for a promotion from blue belt to green. Despite the title, the photos feature both boys and girls of mixed ethnic backgrounds demonstrating typical stances, punches, kicks, and blocks. A short glossary defines karate lingo. This is not a title that teaches self-defense moves. It is a perfect introduction for those about to partake in lessons. In fact, it may even act as a substitute class for those kids to whom an interest in martial arts turns out to be a passing fancy.?Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library
