    How many kids actively listen to their corner while competing? I know its hard enough for adults to manage.

    Overcoaching at tournaments is something that really gets on my nerves. I may start a separate thread on the subject.

    In short, I think coaching during a competition is more distracting to my son than it is helpful. I think he performs better when he just goes out and does his thing without any outside interference.

    No, bitch. That's not how it's done. At all.
    That was awful !


    OT, but question?

    Those kids don't actually apply submissions to finish, correct?

    I've had to throw coaches and parents out of my tournaments before. I just stop doing them back in 2008 on such a large scale because of it.

    It is possible, but as with adults requires specific training. Cues need to be consistent from training to competition.

    With kids, it's not (or shouldn't be ) really necessary unless they are competing at higher levels. In Judo, that would be national or at least qualifying for national level competitions (for me at least). Otherwise, it's just encouragement and positive feedback is best.

    Yes, they do. The ref can stop it if he thinks a kid is in danger at any time.

    If a kid is properly prepared/trained, then he/she shouldn't need much if any coaching from the sidelines. That's my experience at least. And if he/she is not properly prepared/trained, then coaching from sideline won't do much if any good. I've been down that road and it's best to just be positive and encouraging if the latter.

    I should have elaborated and said for fighting and poor sportsmanship.

    Just something else for shitty parents to bitch about. They do it ALL the time. "Come on, ref!! He could've gotten out of that! He's really flexible." I've seen a ref get bitched out for stopping a match when a kid had a fully locked armbar the other kid wouldn't tap to.

    Really, it's hard to appreciate how much these parents lose their fucking minds at these tournaments. Omega understands and others get it if their kids have competed, or if they've reffed or worked tables, etc. But most adult competitors never pay attention to what's going on with the kids so you could've been at these tournaments for years without really noticing it. I'm serious, they go nuts. Parents show their asses at soccer and football games but here they have the added emotional factor of watching their kids one-on-one in something that has some of the feel of a fight.

    I think it's the worst with the beginner divisions because a lot of parents are experiencing these feelings for the first time.
