“Splendid” – Lloyd Alexander, Newbery Award Winner
“”a must have for serious martial arts practioners.” – Taekwondo Times Magazine.
“I have been involved in and taught the martial arts for almost 60 years and have an M.A. degree from Stanford in Education. I found Mr. Pottle’s stories a very creative and effective twist on our children’s classics. Not only were his stories and rhymes entertaining but they each contained a important message for young people in general but further enhanced by their relevance to young students of the martial arts. His use of a brick to explain the differences between various stances was masterful. I immediately brought an old red brick I had in my backyard to my school so I could use it to explain the same to my young (and old) students. Great job!” – Jim Mather, Author and 10th Degree Black Belt.

“Captures the chronicle of the heavens with vivid clarity and describes the fall of the angels with genuine sorrow. There is a rhythm to his writing style I found comforting, like a scenic drive home, and the story flowed as it took me to its destination.” – Harry Aderton, Author of Heaven’s Night.
