    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    What I've learnt about MA from my [3 month old] Kittens.

    Firstly that there are three main phases and combat:

    1) The slapping range. This is usually the stage where kittens exchange various blows with one another, though they predominantly use paws I've seen a technique used here that I call the "kangaroo kick" where the kittens...well kick like Kangaroos.

    They often try jumping attacks but the other cats usually move out of the way.

    2) The hugging phase. This is the immediate phase after slapping, here the cats grab one another with paws and occasionally teeth and attempt to wreastle onto the ground or...rarely..throw other kittens in a manner that sort of looks like a hip/shoulder throw combined. From here they can start hitting one another again but mostly go into..

    3) The wreastling phase. Here both cats are on the floor though in various positions, these include

    i) One can mounted flush atop the other whilst hitting with paws or biting.
    ii) The cat is on its side and the top cat has mounted it around its waste.
    iii) One kitten is face down with the other head butting the back of its head

    And of course various transitional phases of combat

    General observations:

    Though size of course matters, generally it's the kitten who has fought the most that wins.
    One of my kittens is rather shy and doesn't partake in fighting so much as paw the air with her paw. She often loses.

    Fitness plays a large role. Druss, my largest kitten would lose alot despite his size until he got more active. Though he remains a pacifist, he is allowed to remain a pacifist because the other cats are too scared to fight him.

    Cats prefer wreastling, the kittens that attempt to avoid this phase to begin with simply get wreastled down and head butted.

    Head butts are good for causing damage and keeping distance and lastly, that the best defence against a bite seems to be a bite of ones own.

    Armour helps in combat, usually a Whiskas pouch box may be used though offensive capabilties are limited to hitting the other combatant through the slots in the box.

    It is considered courteous to lick your opponents face after a fight.

    And I suppose I can add some more as I observe.

    Well your picture certainly seems to validate that theory :P But yes, I've seen that it acts as a major defence.

    Perhaps like the KF masters of old we can mimic my kittens creating a style that blends striking, clinch work and ground wreastling together, Trained with sparring and fitness?

    Who knows what such an art is capable of?

    Letum... do the kittehs tap out, or do they simply ask the other to stop (possibly because they're in a parking lot)?

    They sort of tap the other kitten, but I believe that's a sign of aggression. They usually just yell and the other gets off.

    Or bizzarely, run. XD
