    He's always had to spar adults. For years he was the only kid training seriously in the gym. Even now that there is a teen MMA team, he's still the youngest and smallest. Of course he should have stepped up, it's a TD and those two have been butting heads for years. That's one of the functions of a TD: to clear the air and see what's what. What's kk supposed to do while Chris is there, look at his feet and wait for him to leave? It wasn't a hostile thing like a GS, but they got to punch each other in the face, so it's good. Sirc likes to harass Ben about it for some reason. Maybe they'll get a chance to have a sanctioned match when Ben puts on some weight in a year or two?

    I harass him because he's such a little **** about the dumbest things. It's good for him. Hopefully anyway, I mean look at Moose. He was harassed heavily and he turned out to be a ****.


    Anyway, I am at a constant 145, so whenever he hits puberty, he can move up to my weight class. I'm not a large man, I mean, on my heaviest I'm only 150. It shouldn't be hard.

    OK but remember, Redline threatened to fire him if he got involved with any gong sau action, so it can not ever go that route. Keep it to friendly sparring or sanctioned competition.

    I don't see him fighting heavier than 135 for the time being. You're about the same height now, but he's only 130ish... prolly 128. It'll be a while.

    OK.

    Once again, that's on him. He's a teen, but that doesn't absolve him of his decisions. He still knows what is stupid. Trust me, I was WAAAAYYYYYY worse than your son, but I wasn't a dipshit. If he doesn't start learning how to pick his battles now, he never will.

    Yes, I'm telling you how to parent your child.

    The mindset you describe is antithetical to personal progress.
    You misunderstood me, I was referring to using TD footage to talk **** in relation to gong sau drama etc.
    Ofcourse advice or a little flaming is helpfull to improve on technique.
