If you are looking for a book to help kids understand the basics of self-defense, this one works. I use this in our own martial arts school as a supplemental reading source for your youth programs. It's also great for workshops, or simply to share with a child for individual reading. The concepts are well explained with text and pictures, and the techinques demonstrated are simple to learn and execute.

The moves in this (very) thin little book seemed highly unrealistic and thus far more likely to merely piss off a bully than to allow for a quick escape or resolution to the conflict.

This is a cute book for kids with no martial arts experience. For those who are experienced it may provide a few moves that they may not know. All in all it's a good little book.
