Soccer kicks and head stomps are banned because of the children.
I grew up watching boxing fights on HBO with my grandad and then porn came on right after.
A little fox sports 1 isn't going to hurt anybody.
I think they should be beat with a belt. That'll teach them to stop thinking of violence.
*I am not a parent so who knows what will happen.*
I think kids should not watch their parents fight until they are well into training themselves and understand what the sport is about and what is happening as a competition.
As far as television, I would let my kids watch if they felt like it. I bet most small kids are bored and run off to play with Hot Wheels anyway, especially if it is a Woodley fight. However if a kid takes an interest in it, for example a MM fight where the kid recognizes they are roughly the same size, I would just explain what is going on and be ready to distract them out of the room if Ray Borg's eyeball starts falling out.
I have a 4yo that enjoys watching MMA or Boxing with me since he was younger, its not a big deal i guess.
Realistically, I think its a case by case scenario. But if you do let them watch combat sports, also put them in we form if martial arts, so they realize the respect, discipline, and honor part of fighting, and not just seeing 2 guys beating each other up.
Let them realize that these guys aren't some barbarians going around beating people up, it highly trained guys with self control, and respect for everyone.
Better at home watching fights instead of on the streets smoking the devils lettuce and murdering
By honestly, I think there's an actual study that shows kids don't actually go out and kill a bunch of people after playing violent video games, and watching violent movies. That should be common sense.
In the case of fighting though, you might have some kids trying out moves, and techniques on other kids, depending on if they have adhd, or just really want yo practice moves on friends and other kids. Sort of like watching WWE. Thats why I say its case by case. But if your kid is a normal, well adjusted kid, let them watch it.
I grew up watching a tom of boxing, and never punched out kids on the playground. At most, I was just shadow boxing at the time. In my daughters case, I could totally picture her trying out some moves on me lol.
If I had kids, they would be watching synchronized swimming only, untill they hit puberty.
Don't try this at home or at school disclaimer, solved
Not sure if trolling or just a genuine idiot. Lol
i don't think its a problem; i remember watching ufc 3 with my dad at the age of 4.
I support it after a certain age, and it depends on the individual as well. My mom got me into Judo when I was like 7 or so. When I was a teenager my cousins got me into BJJ and MT, and then finally MMA. I believe it's healthy for the most part. I never went looking for a fight in the streets after that. You develop a huge confidence, and a different approach to the fight game. Plus you are already getting beat up multiple times at the gym.
I was renting the VHS at about age 10.
As an adult i'm not a big fan of it; the kid better be practicing a martial art ot wrestling if he is watching or he will most assuredly be watching from the eyes of a JUST BLEED fan which can't be healthy at such a young age.
Damn, beat me to it.
No, kids shouldnt even be watching TV, much less cagefighting. Theyre impressionable despite your daddy disclaimer.
Kids should be reading, studying, socializing, developing hobbies. Instead of emulating mostly degenerate dirtbags.
My dad, being a martial artist himself, took me to start training since I was 6. By 8 I had already lost a tooth sparring, and while I tried to pretend to be asleep on the sofa for the subsequent days... I went through with it and knocked down that bigger kid who took a took from me.
Fast forward to high school and NO ONE bullied me, I was the top athlete top jock... dated the chic with the biggest tits in school.
If you stop being a censored pussy for a minute you might actually feel good about yourself for once, without having to pretend.
Who said not letting them watch mma is "coddling or sheltering?" If you read what I wrote I conceded I know they're gonna see it. So thanks, but no thanks for the parenting advice.
