Default your opinions please

Hello brothers and sisters of the forum!! Since so many of you are very knowledgeable with MMA what do you suggest? I have a 6yr old son who I am looking to put in some form of training. My 11yr old daughter is already in boxing, but my son is considered too young to begin boxing training in the boxing world. He knows basic throws and jabs. What form training is a good start? I apologize I was a boxer and so was they're dad so I need all your help. Much love.. xoxo

I know Karate is usually really good for kids, I would suggest that.
Maybe Kenpo, or TKD, etc...

BJJ all day. They have kids programs. Start them now and they will be amazing later.

you live in So Cal so there should be plenty of MMA training type schools there. i'd go for wrestling and BJJ myself. but if you go with an MMA school, you can';t go wrong if you have legit instructors so make sure you do your research. i come from a boxing family too. my great uncle boxed in the Olympics for the U.S. in '56....then fought fo the title 3 times as a pro.

Wrestling would be another excellent way to start him out. That's how Matt started and it seems to have worked out pretty well for him.

I have a red belt in TKD and I did it for three years. It's worth crap.


Go straight to BJJ and then some muay thai as he gets older. It will make him one bad ass little kid but will also teach him respect.

i'd take them outta boxing .. honestly, it is not a good sport ... i grew up watching boxing, love to watch and my brother was a good boxer ... but it is horrible for the brain ... i know they are wearing headgear, but that is to protect their head from getting hurt, not their brain ... the jolts to the brain over and over are horrrible ... i'd go with something like bjj or wrestling where they are rolling, but even karate, tkd are good ... as they teach discipline well IMO ...
