    I think it was really over hyped. I think The words "cage fighting" made the world see it as alot worse. I dont agree with it but i didnt think it was as bad as the news made it out to be.

    That is indeed a good article. I particularly like the example of footballers as role models, fair point.

    i guess once difference in there thats usually not allowed in grappling competitions is it looks like one of them does the slam while in guard.

    I'm a dad, and I don't have a problem with kids doing submission grappling (as long as good refs will call a technical sub, and all have competitors have been taught to tap/respect the tap)
