Man that kid is brutal. Is there such thing as introducing kids into MMA fighting too early? I guess I don't know if MMA involves disipline of fighters. Still badass none the less

I say there is no such thing. The earlier a kid can learn to impose his will on others the better

WOW.. That kid is amazing. I've seen younger do Muay Thai fights but they are all padded up so it was very safe. I would assume that this kid would go into a ring with more pads on for protection. I don't know any sanctioned organization that would allow a kid to fight without more pads on.
I think it's fine to teach a kid that young MMA as long as he is taught to NOT use what he knows outside the Ring. When I have kids that will be the big rule. NO MMA outside the ring. But if he's taught to be a jerk and a bully then this is just what the media needs to talk trash about MMA.

Thats pretty impressive. But like Dave said, I was always taught that the dojo is where you fight for fun and outside the dojo is where you fight only to protect yourself. In any event, I wouldn't want to fight that kid in a couple years, he'd probably tune me

^^ You know, i was always taught that too. All you can really do is guide the kid, and hope you prepared him for what life brings. Knowing what to fight for and when, is one of the things that makes you a man IMO.
