    We are people watching her technique with knowledge of what it should look like. Also her dad is hardly an unbiased adjudicator...Age isn't the main issue here, it's lack of skill. But y'know whatever, the only real cause of concern I guess is that she's being allowed to teach other kids (in what are presumably paid lessons).

    And wtf is exactly what I think about that too..

    @Omega: yeah you're right, it's not her fault. I'm going into my 38th hour with zero sleep so I'm probably being a bit harsh...

    At least she is not a fat, undisciplined, video game watching, unattended future wastoid like many of her peers. She's in a gym, getting exercise and learning to love martial arts. Eventually she will stumble onto Bullshido when she's 18, find out krotty sucks and end up training No Gi and MT. Relax people.

    You can't blame the girl, you have to blame the people that are teaching her to train that way - I'd bet a good chunk of change that she was awarded the belts purely on the merits of memorizing and then "performing" a lot of katas. And on the subject of effective training, I'd also bet that all the girls that train at the boxing gym I go could mercilessly beat the ever-loving piss out of her and probably not even take a shot from her while doing it. Why? Beacause they train all the time on mitts, live punch defense drills, heavy bags, and live sparring.

    Four black belts at age ten! How could she possibly have had time to have done all the necessary training AND go to school?

    The kata are a good bit similar, just performed differently (rhythm, etc).

    Damn Nefron - I keep watching the gif, hoping to see if she's limping when she gets up.
