    any how the truth is kids who fight at club don't fight in school, I live it It really works! the stupid idea that it will cause fights is moronic!
    Yeah, but there are problems there

    1) Try convincing the parents/schoolboard of that
    2)They might not start fights, but the fact that they're training might cause fights to come to them (from others who aren't training)
    3) Suddenly, there's bullshit about how the person with training should have shown more restraint.

    I'm sure there are many more.

    From one side, i support such an idea a lot, provided they protect them well enough, get the parents permission and limit the amount of striking you can do (no elbows to the face or kicking the knees.) Maybe not now, but as time advances and MMA gains more acceptance you can find parents allowing this.

    Alternatively you could make them wear a Gi and pass it off as Sport Combat Sambo.

    On the other hand, highschoolers are some of the stupidest motherfuckers on earth, not all, and certainly not those who stay in MMA clubs for long, but as said before, there will be meat heads or buff gym rats who will wear affliction and come in to try to be badass.

    Just like you guys fear noobs not understanding what a light or medium spar is, or not to go ballistic when you teach them armbars and instead you get your elbow popped, now multiply this by a 100.

    It said so at the beginning: At the highschool in this SMALL, PRETTY AND PROPER LOOKING TOWN near boston.

    emphasis on small, proper and town, you can screen potential students in a small town, you cant in a downtown major city school. Else they should require 6 months of training on the wrestling team and the coaches recommendation before allows to join MMA club, just to make sure thier character is tested and know how to be nice and competetive at the same time. Also they would be fit and not flabby.

    I have always thought the way to do this is use Sambo, make it a spring sport, and once they get used to it, then you move from Sport to Combat, to no Gi.

    we make kids come 2 weeks before they stand up spar!, I have a am boxing background & sometimes take for granted that most mma guys do not, Buff rats & the like do not wander into boxing gyms, if they do they spar once get plastered & leave.

    I did my undergraduate at ETSU in johnson city TN when guys would come in off the street our trainer at upper east tn am boxing on state of franklin for any locals,

    would try to deter them & let them get shelled end of story!

    Kids who train are to tired to fight period, and most other kids are closetly scared of them so it comes out in the wash.

    as far as the school board, I am a local minister & friends with the super, we kind of slid by by calling it the martial arts club!

    hav,t had one issue, let me re-interate WE DO IT NOW! & have been for 2 years!

    I am a martial artist and was a wrestler in winchester back in the 80s and 90s. Winchester has a great wrestling program lead by Larry T and has a history of martial artists. Rudi Ott and Tony Fryklund were in HS with me there. Rudi was on our wrestling team. Good to see the old wrestling room got a facelift. It was more of a dungeon back in the day. Good luck Winchester martial artists.
