    Leigh What i am Saying is I have seen under 16's Taking part in a BJJ Comp.
    My point is they still put on Arm bars holds etc... So an under 16 MMA Fight Is just a Grappling match realy but with out Gi........

    Yeah, I agree with you. I just think that letting the kids decide that its ok is a bit irresponsible. But I think I got the wrong end of the stick on your post

    The thing about kids though is they always make their own choices when they are old enough. We might intend that they are going to be doctors or lawyers etc but they rarely have the same ambitions as you do!
    Fighting is alot better though than some choices like drugs.

    Our talented 7 year old Joe is a mini Leigh, he even looks like him, mmm! He's seen videos of Leigh fighting and def tries to copy him lol!

    Fighting will often lead to drugs.

    Part correct, You fight as a senior when you get to 16 which then means that you are fighting men with full rules. However you are allowed to enter senior comps when you are 14 so if you want to step up you can.
    In europe they start subs at 14.
    I wouldn't teach a sub to an under 12 but if they are taught right i think they can be introduced at 12 ish.

    As for MMA, It would be a hard call i wouldn't put a 7 yo in a fight but maybe a grappling match with no subs.

    Are we talking about what age it is ok to compete or what kids can be taught?

    Personally I cant see ther harm kids having a ranked comp in their training as the trainer can set the rules, make sure everything is best for his students etc.

    I dont think kids should be taught subs till they are at least 15-16 or some kid will end up neck cranking the fuck out of someone in the playground. I like the idea that positions should be taught and points awarded for pulling them off though.

    Definetly no head shots will they are 16.

    I don't see a problem with it, as long as it was no head shots and no striking on the ground, so it would just be combining kids rules kickboxing with a grappling comp. Its more the atmosphere that they compete in thats important
