If I was in one of these little league MMA matches, I would seriously mess them up. Look at their technique, those kids can’t even pull guard properly. Granted, it’s not actually MMA but ‘pankration’ which is essentially MMA without strikes above the neck. Thankfully, I don’t have a kid. Otherwise, I would be that parent forcing my kid to compete in a full-contact sport regardless of whether they wanted to watch Saturday morning cartoons.
Some people may have a problem with kids engaging in pankration matches, but those same people will also have a problem when Grand Theft Auto 5 launches later this year. Essentially what we’re trying to say is if you have unrealistic expectations on society, then you’ll have a problem with everything that doesn’t fit in the confine of the bubble that you’ve created to shelter yourself from the world. Children fighting in a controlled environment is astronomically better than kids sitting in front of a television eating sugar-coated lard squares. We’re giving massive props to The Fight Academy MMA for forcing kids to punch other kids, since it’s illegal for us to punch them. We would, however. Never forget that.
Check out this Aaron Tru clip of the Proving Grounds Youth MMA highlights, and remember that kids are little humans that can’t drive. Those are the wisest words you will read today.
