also mma = mixed martial arts. it was created to be a modern day kumate (bloodsport movie) . where the masters from each martial art , albeit boxing,wrestling ,karate,bjj. compete to see who is the baddest .so if you arent even an expert at your art form how are you going to compete in mma . me personally i think you should even be able to compete in mma until your an adult , and a expert at your martial art .

On a comic relief note,

At the age of 5 I was "Getting" the belt from my parents for fighting with my brother. Is that the same as being in a jr level MMA fight?

these things are not mutually exclusive. it's not like you have to choose one of the other. they can focus on academics AND attend a good MMA school (assuming one is readily available where you live).

I think this a great post. realizing that injuries (some very bad) are a big part of all sports.
what it comes down to is how are you going to react when your kids get hurt in whatever sport they play because it is going to happen.

I play beach volleyball and used to play indoor volleyball, over the last 20 years I've had 3 broken ankles, probably 10-12 sprained ankles, couple broken fingers, torn ligaments in feet, torn shoulder muscles, etc.
Soccer in high school was the same thing. there are almost no sports out there where you are not going to get hurt badly in some way at some time.
