Oh man, I thought I was sharp for realizing the futility of point sparring as a 14 year old.
It's good to see kids who are interested in real training, and even better that they have instructors(you) who encourage that.
I didn't even begin taking TKD until I was 9...
Because in America, we know that all foreigners speak Spanish.
It sounds like you made a good connection with the kid and if you are still giving him privates, at least he if getting positive training and reinforcement. It just sucks that the reality of life has to smack a 9 yr. old in the face like that.
Soccer, Footy, Futbol...whatever. As a player, it is great for cardio, coordination, consciouness of your feet. It's also a little rougher then people think.....however the floppers and whiners screw it up. Rolling around on the ground like they were shot, trying to draw a card.
For your enjoyment, a Dutch soccer fan:
Futbol foh'de world, ese!!!!

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
I thought that was a Red Sox fan! (Although it does look like the Sox one is the photoshopped one).
