UFC for Kids?


Ultimate fights expand to include kids

The article starts with a thud and an attempt by the author to shoot down MMA with this little nugget of untruth that I think he frankly just made up.

But the sport often derided as "human cockfighting" is branching out.

Who calls it that? Your carpool at the AP? Last I checked, UFC and the rest are all sanctioned events, with a governing body, and supervised by doctors and officials. Cockfights are illegal in most countries and involve two roosters pecking the shit out of each other for no better reason than gambling and the enjoyment of Pedro Martinez.

Anyway, I am all for it. People complain when kids sit around watching TV and slapping their Wii around for hours yet discourage them from any physical activity. Then they bitch when kids get off their cans and go out and emulate their heroes without supervision. Now we are going to complain when they want to do it legitimately with the proper equipment and supervision?

You can't have it both ways.

If I ever find a woman dumb enough to father my children, I am going to have the kids signed up for self defense classes before he/she is old enough to watch Dora the Explorer.

Especially when you consider all the gun-toting, sports-avoiding, nut jobs he or she is going to be riding the bus with.

John McCain called it human cockfighting, I believe. Many years ago, before it was sanctioned. Again, not positive but I think that's the case.

First and for most; I would like to tell the parents of these kids that they are completely out of their minds!!!!! Is the money really that good to put your children’s health on the line? I mean come on!! Not only does this make me sick to look at, but what else is this world going to be coming up with next? Wow! UN believable.

Yes, that was John McCain, back when he (as an ardent boxing supporter) realized that MMA, and specifically the UFC, was a huge threat to Boxing Pay-per-view revenue. He wasn't necessarily opposed to the violence, just the violence that was taking dollars away from his preferred form of sport violence.

Thankfully, martial arts injury rates aren't huge like those dangerous sports other parents let their kids do like gymnastics, horseback riding and basketball. Don't even look at the rates for football.

The problem with UFC, Tapout, for kids:

***Fighting is fostering the INTENT to harm/hurt another human being.***

Why would anyone want to direct their children to hurt another person? Words work.

Fighting is the unintelligent, cowardly way of working anything out.

Parenting is a gift. Use it wisely.
