    I agree with you, mostly being difficult.

    I don't know whether to be disturbed or impressed. Forget the "my dad can beat up your dad" argument that kids get into, it's more like "I can beat up your dad."

    I didn't know Pankration was just kids mma.

    I guess the pottery from ancient Greece lied to us or they had some fucking giants for kids back in the day.

    A more accurate version of this might be: don't let the fact that you don't know what you're talking about keep you from writing the story.

    Here has been our attempt to counter this. I belong to the group of coaches trying to bring light to the truth behind all this.

    It's funny how they single out the Americans on this one. Honestly I've seen this happen in the UK too. Didn't think much of it, sure they had a show about it on Channel 4 a few years back. Nothing special, they've got protective equipment on and honestly I wish I'd started at that age. Seen some places teaching MMA as young as 5... In Thailand I think they teach kids from as early as 4 in Muay Thai...
