    Watching kids like this never ceases to amaze me. I think at that age I was playing the kind of soccer where everyone just flocks to where the ball is and tries to kick it in any direction.

    Might be a repost, but oh well

    My kicks, hands, elbows, knees, and foot work are better. I also hit harder and faster. Also, I'm 20 years old....Seriously though if your kid is that good thats awesome. He'll grow up to be quite the athlete.

    We'll see. He started at 2. If he sticks with it. At 6 he already kicks harder than the 8-10 year olds in his school.

    lol his bones are going to be insane!

    Kinda sucks that the kid's family are probably dirt poor farmers and they need him to become a good fighter to help support the family financially. Such is life...

    They need to get that kid to some acting school too. Tony Jaaaa Jr? :x:

    Yes. I started him by taking him to the gym with me when he was 2. He would just try and mimic me. When he was 4 I started explaining/demonstrating the jab and cross etc. He started with knees and elbows at 5. He still has a long way to go putting it all togther and such, but his tecnique is almost perfect when he concentrates and applies himself, but he is 6 after all.

    The level of self-control, dedication, self-motivation, and toughness Muay Thai requires mean that your kid will probably be dynamite in all aspects of life. Awesome. I'm gonna have a little chat with the g/f, let her know where the kids are going as soon as they're of walking age (once we have a few)...

    Haha I think all guys like us think that way, but what happens if your little boy decides to hang up the gloves and become a ballerina?

    Eh, if that's what he wants. I have a daughter who will start training in about 6 to 8 months.
