    I thinke a ground and pound goes too far. Many Kids don't know what the do if they're so young.

    Excuse me, I'm still learning english, don't convict me for bad grammar or spelling or incorrect use of words.

    It is indeed shocking just considering the age of the children, Is it necessary to mention the drastic weight difference between the opponents.

    Still some people will argue that this is a correct way of treating children.Rolling Eyes 

    Maybe this thread does'nt belong to a general judo discussion.

    I promised myself not to reply. What is there to say? I can but add that the last time we saw this sort of 'thing' it also outraged the MMA adult world.
    I ended up visiting the USA embassy here several times about this sort of thing and between us we did manage to get some of it stopped in the USA.

    What does it say about us as a race of human beings? To protect and care for those who are vulnerable like toddlers. Point is IF we need to explain these things to all those involved from parents to coaches, organisers etc, what's the point? I cannot imagine where social services are, they should be informed as should the police. 2013.....It just beggars all belief.
    Not only is such a practice damaging physically for the children but from a psychological prospective its just a disaster. If you have the stomach to watch the clip all the way though, at the end there are more clips. One of the clips is from eastern Europe with 6 year old boys fighting. Go take a look at the attitude of the 'winner' afterward? There are no words for this.

    The damage done to those children is incalculable. See the second clip..........dear God. Civilisation, where? Education, Where.

    WARNING. I write as a pupil of judo. what I write should be researched by the reader and not accepted as in any way factual or correct.

    I coach for this sport but ffs you americans have your arses where your brains are sometimes.

    This sport is not helping these kids at all.

    The showmanship is promoting the wrong values

    I could go on

    These kids should be wrestling at this age, end of rant.

    Hey everybody. Long time no see. Hanon, you and I have certainly had our disagreements but on this I could not agree more. There is no place whatsoever for children in MMA. NON-negotiable.
    Not with modified rules. Not with headgear. Nothing you can do to make MMA an acceptable childhood activity.

    A quarter of Americans don't know that the Earth goes around the Sun. Nearly 60% of Americans would agree that the world is less than 10,000 years old. Global warming deniers ... nearly mainstream in one political party. And the scariest part of all ... many of these vote ... and prevail!

    Scarier still ... compared to other countries in the world I'd say that these numbers are low.

    I live in a relatively enlightened country, and I am grateful. However I think it is unrealistic to expect that idiots like this not to exist.

    Oh, East is East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,
    Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God's great Judgment Seat;
    But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,
    When two strong men stand face to face, though they come from the ends of the earth!
