Although my grandson has a little trouble with some of the words in the book, I am amazed at how well he can read and understand the written instructions. It appears that the author has gone to great lengths to assure the book can be read by young beginners.
I believe the feature that attracted my grandson to this book was the quality and color scheme of the photographic images. The images are large and clear enough to see important details with regard to the hands and feet.
Two areas that could stand a little improvement are: the book needs an index and, in a few moves, more pictures are needed to clarify turning movements.
On the positive side, the stretching techniques are very good, as are the sections on kicking and punching.
All-in-all, the book is a good learning tool.
offers much for both the beginning and advanced student. The photos and
explanation of techniques are clear and crisp. Highly recommended!
