Ultimate (cage) Fighting For Kids

    The parents say their children are learning self defence and discipline. I say they are learning that violence is the answer to everything. To allow six year olds to do this is criminal child abuse.

    That's disgusting. No other way to describe it.

    What is wrong with these people? If we condone this, what kind of message are we sending?

    That's just sick. He's 14 years old.

    This is ridiculous. There are other ways to teach your kids discipline and self-respect.

    Also, this is even different than sending your kids to a martial arts class. There you are taught self-defense and discipline. If you are going to teach kids self-defense, then you also have to teach them never to start a fight. Otherwise your not teaching them self-defense. Your teaching them to use their fighting skills for offensive purposes, which is very bad.

    Aren't these parents inadvertently teaching their children that starting fights is worthy of praise and fame by sending them to these classes?
