Before joining Kuong Nhu, she has been training for many years in Tae Kwon Do and aikido. Her earlier martial arts training consists of the style of wuying mu karate under an instructor named Pauline Short who was a pioneer in women’s martial arts in U.S.
Besides Dojo Didi, Goodman is a writer and poet. Her work has published in many periodicals. For ex: learning from children, five easy lessons for teachers, which appears in the book martial arts teachers on training which was edited by Carol Wilay (North Atlantic Books).
Her views were narrated in sharp spear /crystal mirror/martial arts in women’s lives by Stephanee Hoppe (Park Street Press) and an interview with her appeared on the martial arts web site Martial Edge in 2006.
Kids' Karate Workbook imparts a perfect balancing between particular techniques and general practicing conditions. All these meant for grade school kids.
The book reveals the creams of good practicing and the main points of martial arts principles presenting them in good teaching method which both kids and parents can comprehend. This system is very useful in Karate, Tae Kwon Do or mixed martial arts school.
Kids can easily understand the difference between these types by reading the adjunct. Goodman actually does not have any desire to write these, knowing he could not give any credit to the job done by Sensei Didi and company.
Sensei Didi also have done an excellent job. The author puzzles to decide how many numbers she would order to get some bulk discount hoping that her students and parents would surely agree with her.
