    There is absolutely nothing positive about this video. This would be a crime in the United States, and it should be a fucking crime in Thailand too.

    Too young...3-4 years? **** that dude, kids that young should not be sparring in a fucking ring.

    I like the YT comments about why this makes Thailand so much better than the US...

    ...sex trafficking, drug violence, corruption, and kiddies fighting.

    Yeah Thailand is a shining example of cultural superiority...

    I was under the impression that Muay Thai badassery was produced through hard training and good quality sparring partners, not forcing children too young to understand or consent into a fight.

    Correction- This is why the thais are so badass. Those kids have probably been chomping at the bit to do what they watch daddy and big bro everyday.
    Dont get me wrong toddler fighting isn't something I'd pay to watch or even involve my kids in, but I dont think its all that bad. If my kid wanted to I'd probably be O.K. with it.(I dont think I'd tell the mrs 'till it was done though) It was fairly controlled and they are both probably being groomed to be young pro's.

    Achievements, activities and training of children has zero, absolutely zero, correlation with ability and achievement as an adult.

    Just look to Judo, the US and UK has hundreds, neigh thousands, of junior champions for age 5-12. Fewer than 0.000001% of them ever make it anywhere near elite adult status.

    Pushing children to compete before the age of 10-12 is almost always counter productive and causes drop outs from the sport.

    Zero? Absolutely zero? :DudeComeOn:

    The US and UK judo kids are from a very different world, apples and oranges. I think you're onto something there with pushing kids to compete in sports. It's gotta be fun for 'em.

    Ok you're an Aussie so find me a winner of an under 10 or under 12 national championship in a combat sport who has won a +18 national championship or continental or world level championship?

    Not really when it comes to Judo, both the US and UK are up **** creek. Both fetishize the under 12s and both suffer from abysmal post 18 performance as a result.

    Personally I'd like to them start the kids a little younger. There's no way a kid will ever reach Ong Bak status if you wait till they're a toddler it's just too late.

    I was sad when I finally realized as a middle schooler that I would never amount to anything in martial arts because I was just too old. Look at Jet Li for **** sake he started when he was like 6 months old and everyone knows Jet Li's level is just a starting point for the world's most elite fighters.
