Why arent those kids using head gear in their wrestling matches? Their ears are gonna be ****ed by the time they get to actually competing in mma.

To whomever keeps deleting my sig, the size is 408x220 the rules state it must be smaller than 420x220, thus i am not breaking the rules.

...I'm sure most of you have seen the tapout commercial with the little mohawk kid. He's mindblowing and seeing Coleman coach him, this kid- whoever he is, is certainly the future. He has so many years to compete before he can actually fight professionally it's to scary to imagine how great he will be. This kid will have more amateur trophies than he could fit in his bedroom...

There was a thread some months ago about these kids.
They are awesome atm!

It's not a guarantee for the future...but atm, you can only be amazed by the skill level they have.

By the looks of it, their determination that is, I doubt they really care what their ears look like. A lot of people view it as a badge of honor (Hendo, Randy, etc).

Just like the MLB, NBA and NFL, only the true cream of the crop make it, and hundreds of thousands of athletes are sifted through until the tip top remain to become pro.
Totally agree. I also believe that the standards of Jiu Jitsu in MMA will improve over time too. Using the Gi to learn Jiu Jitsu which you're then planning on adapting to MMA is a largely pointless exercise. I'm with Eddie Bravo in the belief that if Helio Gracie had called for the Gi to be ditched 20-30 years ago, there'd be 10 Marcelo Garcias and 10 Shinya Aoki's, not just a small cluster of these true Submission experts. As MMA's popularity continues, you're going to see more and more kids move directly into training Mixed Martial Arts, instead of just purely the individual disciplines. You're therefore not going to see very much use of the Gi whatsoever, which means these kids will learn all their sweeps, their set-ups for submissions etc without the Gi. The result of that is that you're going to see more of these exciting Jiu Jitsu practitioners in Mixed Martial Arts, which is exactly what the sport needs given the move towards a wrestling dominated arena. If things develop as I expect they will, I can't imagine how fantastic the sport will be in say 20 years. I'm really looking forward to seeing the development. It's a great time to be an MMA fan!

Wow, those kids are impressive. I know some fully grown men at my gym that don't have technique as good as that.

Well when you start a kid out young at something then they will learn via muscle memory and will learn the technique as time goes on. Someone who starts something as an adult is not going to be as adept at it as someone who started as a kid. So believe it or not Mr. Miyagi and Mr. Han's whole muscle memory training thing does work out, though obviously not the way they did it!
