Pros: Really informative and fun
Cons: None

This book does for young people in Aikido what Greg O'Conner's book, The Aikido Student Handbook: A Guide to the Philosophy, Spirit, Etiquette and Training Methods of Aikido, did for adult students of the art.

It covers everything from Japanese terminology and pronunciation, etiquette, dojo layout, how to fold ones gi, rolling, basic techniques etc. The book is written as a teaching tool. There are little quizzes after a given section.

The illustrations are charming. For young children, I could see parents reading the book to them and ending up with a better understanding of what the art is about than most parents typically have. Older young people won't be bored either.

Very nice book I'd love for the kids in my young people's program to read.
