yes, now, in most places after problems happened

from the article:

"the league caught the attention of lawmakers in 2013 after a video emerged of a young boy landing a hard right cross to the chin of a 9-year-old female fighter."


and still this:


from the article:


" Youth MMA remains unregulated or illegal in many states, "


from the article:


" Rose Gracie, a member of the legendary Brazilian jujitsu Gracie family, doesn’t believe athletes should be able to enter the ring until 25 — when their brains are fully developed. “The younger these children are exposed to this type of damage, the earlier they will show signs of something major in the future,” she said. "


wearing headgear does not mean that a fighter will not suffer head injuries - it only lessens the likelihood and the impact - it doesn't eliminate the danger


and this from the article:


"and an ambulance with medical personnel would be required at each event."


the implication of this is that there is significant danger - this is not required for youth soccer or basketball


and this stuff won't be there when the kids are just training - sparring


assuming a child will always be conscious of and will always follow all of the rules is far fetched

Didnt we have wrestling in elementary school? In high school one of my classmates died in Varsity wrestling.

I boxed as a kid.

My son took karate as a 5 year old.

I was wrestling at age 6. I had to quit at age 14 when I lost a kidney. It was very popular in the midwest.

What I read in the Washington Post article is that head strikes are banned and head gear must be worn.

I confess that I have not read the Washington Post article. However, I have seen the three photos that lilredrooster posted and that Alan quoted, with two of them being records of live action. It certainly appears that a head shot was landed in the first photo (two boys) and that neither of those boys and neither of the girls in the third photo are wearing head gear. The Post article must be describing a very different kind of event.

_____________


so many Americans see children fighting in cages as being so entertaining

how about senior cage fighting_________????_________(snicker snicker)

I bet a lot of my fellow countrymen would love to throw down a few bruskies and watch a couple of 85 year olds go at each other in a cage

no headgear required - no need to ban head shots___________________ -:)




and how about men against women in a cage______________?????_________________why not______________?????

of course 99% of really strong men will be able to crush really strong women but so what - if they're willing to do it___________?????

the women will get paid really well in exchange for getting pummeled into submission or unconsciousness

for a lot of people it would be fun to watch - they would pay good money to see it_____________ -:)

Jerry Leo died from a broken neck while wrestling, with coaches looking on, at an authorized inter high school wrestling match. He was 17.

Ban wrestling.

great, great point Alan

a man died in a car crash a couple of blocks from me last week

ban cars

children fighting in cages won't be banned - it will provide entertainment for the masses for many years to come

Clearly kids need to toughen up today. When I was a kid we wrestled with broken necks and were forced to run laps if we complained about the pain.

"Billy, you better clean up your room RIGHT NOW or so help me it's the cage for you."

"But dad, I don't want to fight."

"It's not fighting, son, it's entertainment."
"What, me worry?"
