Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8Along with the standard side and roundhouse kicks, this Korean form of self-defense includes crescent kicks and spinning and jumping kicks that make it visually exciting to watch. This manual provides step-by-step instructions for learning these techniques and includes warm-up exercises, stances, and blocks. It also covers patterns (or forms), self-defense moves, and one-steps (drills), all of which reinforce Tae Kwon Do movements. Pressure points (places on the body where nerves are very sensitive) are also mentioned, and while no death grips are introduced, these and other self-defense moves should be used with caution. Sadly, the small black-and-white photos arent always clear enough to provide good instruction.Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library

Format: Paperback
I found this title rather diappointing. If you are the take it at home type and don't actually attend a Tae Kwon Do class you may find this helpful. Although I must say that the information is acurate. But anyone who attends classes and get this title will be disappointed as well. Mr. Yates is ususally a VERY good author, this book does not do him justice.

Format: Paperback
Filled with good information, illustrated with tons of good photos. This book is encouraging, as it shows girls and boys of all ages, sizes, and ethnicities (and all ranks) performing stretching, self-defense, and basic tae kwon do skills. It's written at a level kids can understand -- without insulting their intelligence. A great buy.
