    Kids cage fighting competition in Preston, North West England.

    Greenlands Labour club in Preston, North west England played Host to a cage fighting contest, in which some of the participants were as young as eight years old.



    Bouts lasted 10 mins and the promoter, Stephan Nightingale declared it an ‘extremely good event’.
    Despite protests from some corners of the British Medical association, primarily due to the lack of head protection during the bouts. The event, appeared, to be generally well recieved.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer.

    Those kids don't appear to be wearing gloves either... are we sure this isn't just a grappling competition that happens to be held in a cage, and the dumb fuckers are blowing it out of all proportion?

    Edit: Oh hay, here in the original article: “We do not let them strike – punch and kick – until the age of 14 or 15.”

    So basically a case of the ignorant hysterical masses getting the wrong end of the stick, again.

    I'm not terribly enamoured with the idea of 8 year olds cranking subs on each other, but that's still a world away from punching each other in the head.

    It was a submission grappling match in a cage.

    There were a couple of leg locks applied that had the other kid limping and in visible pain, they called in medics, but let the kids carry on.

    That's still kind of fucked up then, but not for the reasons the BMA state.

    I was wondering about that...

    The video in the link, shows to kids who are clearly grappling and not throwing any strikes. The promoter even states, they don't let them hit each other untill ages 14-15.

    But then it was just the one video. Another commentator, Paul Jackson, manager of another local gym, would find it questionable if they were joint locking each other.

    And in the vid, one kid goes for what looks like an achillies lock on the other....

    Maybe it was in the dark matches where they had the kids doing their best "Thunderdome"... ;)

    I ripped the vid earlier in anticipation of it being pulled, but am having trouble uploading it to the burn account I've created for it.

    The only thing wrong in my eyes is the pressure, because they look really young like 8/9 years old and the leg locks.

    I mean they aren't really cranked, but the kid is clearly hurt and you just don't **** about with a child's joints like that.

    I would have stopped it when they kid got leglocked and was limping, called the whole thing off right then and there.

    Aren't leglocks usually not allowed in beginner level grappling competitions?

    They should be. Heel hooks are definately off the menu, not sure about kneebars though.
