15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Sensei Butch Mclaughlin - 5th Degree blackbelt. on January 23, 2002
Format: Paperback
The Peaceful way takes a simple but detailed approach to training in the martial arts. The target reader age for this book is 8-10years old, and the style fits that range. However, parents who are new to the arts, and instructors new to teaching children wil find this informative, as it gives great insight on the best approaches to teaching youngsters.
Students will read about all the do's and don'ts of the martial arts in general regardless of what style they practice.
I have taught children's classes for 16years and have found few resources that are this good at getting the points across, so that a beginner can understand them.
