Dont really see a problem with it me wish i had got into it at that age! You know what the media is like they always make things look worse than they are ill have my kid training soon
moves like the 'Ground Pound' and the 'Cobra Strangle'
Not surpised that there was no mention of head shots allowed or not, got to keep the sport in a bad light.
Wow that pic of the choke looked really dangerous. Oh wait it was an armbar. Awesome bit of well researched journalism from the Mail as always...
I'm all about the cobra strangle.
The only thing I agree with is having headguards. The article is dog shit, the guy writing it doesn't know anything about mma. That kid is in crazy shape, I shouldn't be put to shame by a child.
The usual level of Daily Mail reporting... shite.
However, you know for a fact that there are fat, useless parents out there pushing their kids to fight because they've never achieved anything themselves. I don't think really young kids should be in a usual MMA environment (cage, adult crowd, ring girls etc...). It's not something I'd allow my boy to be involved in. The pankration style events they mention are much better, like the Grapple & Strike sort of events held around the UK.
