    fucking EL O EL at people in australia, one of the leading nations when it comes to kids being fucked up and getting spinal/brain injuries playing league and rugby, to get pissy about two girls getting in the ring.

    seriously. you want to see kids getting owned? go watch a league game. kickboxing is 100x safer than that crazy ****.

    and you know what, **** them for trying to give John Wayne Parr bad press. that guy is the single greatest sportsman to come out of that cesspool of whores and crims known as australia, and gets hardly any recognition. having met the guy and talked to him in person and online a few times, he is really one of the single most pleasant people ive ever met. while the big aussie sports like aussie rules and league have an ongoing parade of fuckwits gangbanging groupies, beating up their girlfriends and getting in barfights. **** you australia!

    Really??? Do you say this about all parents who let their kids play contact sports?? or maybe only the girls parents?. What about those kids who play rugby? or those who play some version of scrag in the playground?What about Judo where the kids throw each other?.

    The kids were wearing headgear,shin pads (i assume mouthguards) and did you see the size of the gloves? The only reason theres any kind of media outrage is because its a small GIRL hitting another small GIRL in a sport thats not hugely popular (on the scale of say cricket or rugby)and the dad is an ex world champ.

    edit:second what alex said.The guy has been to my club too and is awesome.

    Alex, tell us how you really feel :)

    I'm very protective over my daughter but she attends a kids' kickboxing class and I'd let her spar in the way shown in the video as long as she wanted to, and as long as I was confident the referee was alert.

    I know this is anecdotal, but I've attended local kickboxing competitions with kids' divisions about as rough as this, and the only time I've seen the children upset is when their pride is hurt because they lost. I didn't seem them getting injured or mentally traumatised by other kids swinging at them.

    I would say that about any parent if their child was crying during the rest breaks of their chosen sport, not a good sign really is it?

    Children under 10 more or less idolise their parents and will do a lot to please them, so a parent has to be very careful that what they are doing is really the childs choice and by their over enthusiasm they are not pushing the child into doing something they are not really comfortable doing, that goes for any activity or sport, I am not singling this one out.

    oh **** off. i used to cry before i ran my races (was a pretty top level national runner back in my day) and its just how kids deal with stress. did you watch the video? she was pretty excited about fighting. JWP isnt the kind of dude who would force his kids into a sport they didnt want to do. plus, his wife would smoke his ass if he did. shes a mean lady.

    Yer **** you too, that is my opinon, personally I would not put put my kid through that level of stress at that age, but different parents have different views and it is their right to do what they think best.
