    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    That is a great video!
    I'm so disappointed, I just sat my 3 year old down to watch it and asked if he'd like to do that one day.
    He said no.

    I have a 3 year old son, too. He's too young to be thinking about **** like fighting. In fact, I don't know that he can even really grasp the concept of competitiveness at that age. He just wants to play in his sand box and ride his tricycle, which is fine.

    That doesn't mean you can't start "training" him. I bought my son some little boxing gloves and I let him hit me in the face with them. He loves that, and with just a little encouragement, he's already starting to throw more straight punches instead of girly haymakers. I also wrestle with him a lot, just so he can start getting a feel for it.

    I imagine he'll develop an interest in martial arts just from growing up around it, but I won't push him. Martial arts is something you have to love to be good at. Otherwise, you won't have the will to keep pushing yourself to improve. Having said all that, it's awesome what those kids in the video are doing.

    Thats awesome. My boy is almost 4 months and I can't wait until he can start rolling and punching me in the face. As it is now I just make an idiot of myself and laugh when he giggles at me.
