That was a nasty looking head snap... oooooouch
Maybe they should maybe teach their kids to keep their hands up.
Just a thought
In that case, maybe then those parents should have their kids do something worthwhile, like real sports, instead of encouraging them to engage in violent/delusional activity a la martial arts.
i have never ever sparred like that. **** that ****.
What a concept...hands...up....

That might have something to do with the facts that:

So the parent's psychology is supposed to go: "I'm going to encourage my child to participate in 'fighting-related' activities, but at the same time am opposed to them possibly being injured or experiencing hard physical contact". Once again illustrating that MA in our largely nonviolent society is nothing more than a psychological exercise for banishing feelings of inferiority and weakness.
where are these poor kids being pussified like this? If my TKD master saw that, beatings would break out over mass stupidity!!!!!! it felt a pain in my gut watching those videos even though i havent trained in 3 years.
sweet monkey jesus, it looks like they are dancing......
Meh, even worse. More kids begin the long road towards a shitty unhealthy life by playing NFL-based video games.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
Clips like that are actually starting to make me angry. Teaching kids to kick each other in the head, but failing to teach them a proper tight defense is reckless and irresponsible (yes both at the same time).
What kind of fucking moron thinks bouncing around sideways with your hands down and chin in the air is of any use at all?
