Tae Kwon Do for Kids
Instill pride, self-confidence and discipline in your child! Tae kwon do can do that--and it's fun, so kids will want to keep on practicing and learning. You'll see...this sport's not just about kicks and punches! How do you get children started--the right way? Choose the right teacher: Take your time, watch a class, and follow these hints before signing up. Know what to expect: Here are all the basic moves and positions kids will encounter--including the respectful bow that opens and closes every class. * Warm them up and build them up: get exercises that gently stretch the muscles for the workout ahead, and others to increase strength. * Detailed photos illustrate the correct techniques for making a fist, and a variety of blocks and kicks. * One by one, go through sparring positions and combinations, patterns suitable for competition, and valuable self-defense skills. Filled with inspiring photographs of kids executing the maneuvers, and endorsed by the American Karate and Tae Kwon Do Organization. 96 pages, 302 b/w illus., 6 x 9.
