    my son is 4 now. He is a bad ass. He has anger issues and likes to hit his older brother and other kids at school. Trying to calm him down.

    What martial arts do u guys suggest i put him in. Money is not an issue.

    I'm not sure. I think most TMA would be beneficial as they would instill some discipline in him.

    My son is 2 and I'm planning to put him in Wrestling in a year and a half roughly. I think this will be best for him.

    Wrestling and jiu jitsu. Also, boxing isn’t a bad idea in the next few years but 4 is a little young for that. 6-7 maybe, if he’s interested of course.

    Judo / Jiu-Jitsu, if you live in the states then wrestling is the way to go.

    Put him into boxing or wrestling if he wants to do it

    He will still be an asshole though, that's in his genes

    You should probably smack him around a bit and teach him some manners

    You should think about finding a martial art for your older son instead. Getting bullied by your own little brother? Never heard of it

    If you actually want your kid to be a good athlete later in life... gymnastics (100% super serious), and anything with lots of running involved.

    That being said, Judo seems to have the best pipeline developed for youths to adults. TKD for developing extreme leg dexterity. And of course, there's always wrestling (which is going to be a very competitive environment starting very young).
