only a fool will let there son at age 13 yrs old regularly compete in full contact this is not the path we choose. if it was then you would have by now seen alot of video of nainoa dung on the internet. he has trained along time with out contact and with the supporters and advisors behind nainoa dung it is unlikely he will burn out and unlikely they would let all his hard work go to waste. saying this now you understand that he will make it to the pro level and he will be training right.

Are you kidding full contact...they gotta be wearing head gear. They're bones aren't fully developed and they're going to have serious mental issues growing up.

I'd say 18 is the age to engage in full contact with no head gear. Imagine all the head shots he's absorbing now x that by how many years he'll be in the game.

Fighting wise it's pretty impressive. Reminded me of the scene with Leonidas when he was a kid in 300.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
