In Thailand I think they teach kids from as early as 4 in Muay Thai...
    Couple of weeks ago, at the T-Max expo in Coventry I saw a 6 year old girl beat an 8 year old boy in a Muay Thai fight.

    I hear Pankration doesn't even require that kids wear bulletproof vests- what if one of them gets shot?!?!?!

    It's worth pointing out that Pankration has a much lower rate of injury than, say, soccer or cheerleading.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    It is because of the extremely high injury rate that Cheerleading is not considered a sport.

    Then again the article was written by the same types that accused Omega of commenting violations because he was using a term correctly.
