Realistically there is nothing wrong with this, but morally there is. I have no problem with what happen here. But remember the world we live in people get mad when an 8 year old walks to school by himself or crosses the street.
U have two boys 8 grappling, like i said i have no problem with it. I would keep it private in a dojo, don't like the public see something like this as it will create rage.
It is a ****ed up story no doubt, they blew it out of context.
