Hi Guys,

I have a heavy bag in my home office, and I train on it regularly. My Daughter (2.5 years old) has seen me train and she is punching it too. She's doing great and copies my lack of technique exactly.

The problem is that I can't buy wraps and gloves that are small enough for her. Also are there long term risks with heavy bag training for kids? I know that you have to be careful with free weights for kids, only doing bodyweight until their bones have fused at age 13/16.

I want her to be able to defend herself, and I want to keep her into MMA, but I don't want her to damage her hands while they are still forming?

Does anyone have any knowledge or opinions about this?
