A Holiday Gift for Karate and Taekwondo Kids
I’m already starting to see the words “holiday shopping” in the media, so there’s nothing to do but join in:
The Kids’ Karate Workbook is a great holiday gift idea for young martial arts students. As you know, when kids get involved in something, they love everything about it, from clothing to equipment to… anything they can find. This book offers some special benefits for both children and parents:
It encourages reading.
It encourages healthy physical activity.
It promotes discussion between kids and parents on the important topics of safety and self-defense.
It promotes active engagement with an art and discipline that in itself brings many benefits to the child.
If you’re an instructor, I want you to know you were very much on my mind when I wrote this book. It’s not meant to be used by students for self-instruction; it’s meant to get students to collaborate with you, their teacher, in order to practice better at home. Time and again the book asks students to speak to you, to find out what you want them to practice and improve, and even to “correct” the book if it differs from what you teach. There’s no other book like it in the bookstores. Click here to read more about it on Amazon: The Kids’ Karate Workbook: A Take-Home Training Guide for Young Martial Artists.
If you’re a school owner, consider offering the book for sale in your “pro shop,” or asking your neighborhood book store to stock it for your students. And if you have any questions, please contact me: didi[at]kidskaratebook.com — or leave a comment here on the blog.
