“Parents and teachers: if you are considering a gift for your young martial artist, [The Kids’ Karate Workbook] would be an exceptional choice.”
“The Kids' Karate Workbook by Didi Goodman is designed to supplement karate or tae kwon do classes. A wealth of illustrations show techniques from various positions…as well as helpful side-by-side illustrations of incorrect and correct stances.”
"Terrific, hands on manual for instructors to offer their students. It is nearly impossible to write a technical manual that is general enough to span across many styles and specific enough to be useful. Didi Goodman really nailed it with this book. The illustrations are a terrific tool – especially the small 'quizzes' the kids can take. Loved it. I am going to offer them to my students as they enroll."
– Kelly Muir, author of Instructor Revolution: A Superior Method of Teaching Children Martial Arts

I teach child safety and self defense classes, and I ordered this book a few days ago, looking for a resource for my students and their parents. It arrived today.
I just got home an hour ago, and dinner is quite late because I have been reading the book non-stop.
In nineteen years as an instructor, I have used many handouts and homework exercises to reinforce the lessons taught in class, and I've often thought that I should assemble a companion guide to help parents guide their child's practice at home.
The Kids' Karate Workbook is exactly what I was looking for!
The book strikes a perfect balance between specific techniques and general good martial arts practice - all of it perfectly targeted for grade school kids.
The book takes the essentials of good practice and the key points of martial arts philosophy and presents them with sound teaching methods in a format that kids and parents can use. It's equally useful in a Karate, Tae Kwon Do or Mixed Martial Art school.
[Kids can even learn what these different martial arts are by reading the excellent appendix!]
I no longer have any urge to write this book, since I know I couldn't top the excellent job that Sensei Didi and company have done!
Instead, I'd just like to learn how many I'll have to order in order to get some sort of bulk discount, because I'm sure that my students and their parents will agree with me!
For parents and kids looking to enrich their martial arts practice, I highly recommend this book!
