KIRKUS REVIEW

Introducing Judo as the ""gentle"" way small Timothy learned to tame rough, bullying Tuffy, the author tells a little about the sport's history, uniform, rules and ritual, then--for boys and girls who don't have the chance to take formal lessons, puts them through a regimen of preliminary exercises, falls, balance positions, throws and holds. She ends with a roundup of martial arts, especially Aikido, Karate, Kung-Fu, T'ai-chi and Sumo wrestling. Scruffy, amusing drawings illustrate the moves, and Bruce's style is direct and friendly.
