Long­time karate in­struc­tor pub­lishes chil­dren’s book

Woonsocket Call - - BLACKSTONE VALLEY -

WOONSOCKET – The new chil­dren’s book “Wimpy,” writ­ten by lo­cal busi­ness owner and au­thor Christina Ron­deau, is now avail­able via Ama­zon or through the web­site www.christi­naron­deau.com. You may also pur­chase your copy at Ron­deau’s Kick­box­ing, 609 Killingly St., John­ston. “Wimpy” is about a lit­tle boy who has no self-con­fi­dence. His par­ents are con­cerned about him, and as his Grade 3 school year comes to an end, some­thing needs to change. He then takes up karate, which im­proves his so­cial life, phys­i­cal de­vel­op­ment, and con­fi­dence. “Wimpy,” with il­lus­tra­tions by Mike Motz, is a great book for par­ents to read with their chil­dren, as many chil­dren will find them­selves able to re­late to the char­ac­ter. Christina Ron­deau, a na­tive of Rhode Is­land, cur­rently re­sid­ing in John­ston and ini­tially from Woonsocket, is the au­thor of sev­eral books fo­cus­ing on safety. She is a fifth-de­gree black belt, pro fighter and Re­al­ity Self-De­fense In­struc­tor. For over 29 years Christina has taught chil­dren and adults how to pro­tect them­selves and how to get fit. Christina has been a pi­o­neer in the mar­tial arts in­dus­try, cre­at­ing Fit­ness Kick­box­ing, and was in­ducted into the Mar­tial Arts Hall of Fame. Christina is pas­sion­ate about keep­ing kids and adults safe and teach­ing them, not only how to phys­i­cally be safe, but how to have com­mon sense.
