I have to say, the majority of posters on this site are being quite narrow minded. I would have thought, that by now, people would look at things from all points of view before forming an opinion. To automatically say that because something is dangerous, children should be banned is ridiculous. All sports are inherantly dangerous. Young children are hurt every year, sometimes quite seriously, in football. I myself, broke my arm at 11 playing organized full-contact football. I have a friend who took a line drive to the forehead while pitching in a little league game. Another childhood friend was struck in the back of the head by an errant golfball at a local course. Its all dangerous. Even a seemingly harmless sport like golf can lead to longterm physical damage. This is the first thing you are taught, assuming coaches are qualified and somewhat intelligent, when first starting in competitive sports. While i do agree that 6 is probably a little to young to start MMA training, i would also not hesitate to allow my 10 year old son/daughter to participate.
