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.
