About this title


Kung Fu is a form of martial arts that has been developed over the centuries in China. Learning the history behind this ancient martial art will help readers appreciate the practice much more. Full of facts, colorful photographs, and easy-to-follow diagrams, this book helps and engages any young reader.

From Booklist:

A volume in the Kid’s Guide to Martial Arts series from Rosen’s PowerKids line, this offers a simple introduction to the venerable Chinese martial art. Beginning with a definition of kung fu (“hard work”), the book proceeds to a brief discussion of history and styles, followed by such specific topics as equipment, stances, strikes, kicks, and more, and concludes with a very brief look at “Kung Fu Language,” which focuses on martial arts–related words. Printed with green backgrounds, the pages are heavily illustrated with full-color photographs, principally of young people demonstrating various moves. That the book is targeted at both boy and girl readers is evidenced by the presence of girls in many of the pictures. Simple and straightforward, the accompanying text is a good complement to the information-filled pictures. A glossary, index, and brief bibliography are appended to this useful survey. Grades 3-5. --Michael Cart
