    Are you basing this on your own experience or a study of some kind?

    If it's a study I'd like to see a link.

    I meant- "The US and judo kids are from a very different world... to thailand"
    I'm thinking more in terms of different cultures, and influences like national sports. How young did the elite of soccer, rugby league, boxing, muay thai e.t.c. start? Pretty young I reckon. Even just playing around at home coz its what everyone does is a form of training.

    Kids doing judo in us and uk are probably not going to be as driven or fanatical. Or as likely to stick around as its not in their face their whole lives. (just my opinion.)

    Not far enough...

    You can have that civilization ****, the only thing that sux out here is the lack of decent grappling instruction.

    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.
    Just quickly, in my Kyokushin club there's a 19 year old who took the Nationals open belt in her weight division, and was also doing so coming up the ranks as a child. I think she's been training for 7-8 years now at the same club.

    When I look through youtube Muay Thai videos I occasionally come across "Muay Thai" fights between kids that look about 13 and if it didn't say so in the title I wouldn't have guessed that it was a Muay Thai fight. Its impressive that what they where doing looked distinctly like Muay Thai when there that young.

    I am not sure if I would let kids I was responsible for do that but it dousnt look like such a horrific experience. Boys often fight from a young age, worse things have happened then making them put gloves on first.
