Grade school bullies are a fact of life. But kids can protect themselves from these tormenters, thanks to Keith Vitali, a Black Belt Hall of Famer and a past guest on the The Oprah Winfrey Show. He shows parents some very basic self-defense techniques that they can teach their children so kids have the skills to stand up for themselves in everyday situations. Vitali’s simple instructions come accompanied by lots of black-and-white photographs in easy-to-follow, step-by-step sequences. In addition to explaining these defensive moves, Vitali explains what a bully is and the motivations behind his or her actions. Real-life stories provide additional insight into the emotional harm done to the victim, making this a valuable tool for parents and teachers alike.
Keith Vitali has won several competition titles and was inducted into the Black Belt Hall of Fame in 1981. He has written four instructional karate books: Karate for Beginners, Karate Kicking, Keith Vitali’s Winning Karate Techniques, and Tournament Fighting. He Live in Marietta, GA.
