Karate Kids

by Holly Sterling

Ref: 16136

It's karate lesson day and a band of eager children are dressed in their "gi", all ready to make their moves at the local "dojo": a warm up of boingy jumps and swishy moves; block practise; the balancing challenges of "Kata" time; finally, a soothing wind down of deep breathing. How lucky we are that wonderful illustrator, Holly Sterling, has now also drawn on her martial arts expertise to create this irresistible beginner's guide to karate for children. Genuinely informative and lots of fun. Delivers a fantastic fitness message and also offers up fabulous female role models. Holly, who now teaches in her own dojos, is a former karate champion and the first female athlete to be crowned Grand Champion two years in a row at the Karate Union of Great Britain's National Championships. 'Really interesting book. The children will enjoy trying out the positions and learning new vocabulary' (Carey, Childminder, Letterbox Library reviewer). Age 4-7, Paperback 30pp
