    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.

    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.

    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    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

Maybe it helped to have a really cynical dad and a some college wrestlers in the family to keep me anchored in reality...
    You realize the same thing probably happened with this kid. The little tyke overheard his mother or fathers opinion and bounced it off kempofist. Lucky little bastard.
