The Pros and Cons on this favor both sides really. I've seen kids with bad ADD or ADHD put into MMA, Kickboxing, BJJ etc. etc. and become much calmer and off ridiline.
And like toxic posted above there are the kids that push there weight around. I could care less what age kids begin to train at, they just need to learn fighting is a discipline and should only be used in self defense, at the gym, or in the cage!
