Helping Your Child Succeed in Martial Arts

A guide for parents of young martial artists

About the Book

This book is a twenty three chapter guide for parents, guardians and carers. Everything you need to know to help a child succeed with their martial arts training.

Find the right martial arts school, keep your child motivated. Help them become a more confident individual, while getting the most out of their training.

I wrote this book based on things I've talked about with the hundreds of parents whose children I have taught over the last fifteen years, as well as conversations with other professionals in the martial arts industry and of course my own personal experience.
