The Future Of MMA: Kids Training In Mixed Martial Arts

Submitted by on August 27, 2010 – 9:50 am66 Comments

It is debatable whether or not training children in the sport of mixed martial arts is a good or bad thing. I, personally, think it’s great. Razak Sports Films and TapouT collaborated on this short film documenting brothers Giovanni and Carlos Ruffalo (ages 8 and 9 respectively) and their coach/father Carlos Sr. as they train in MMA.

It’s an interesting look at two talented  young boys and offers some insight on the intricacies of a father training his young boys while still raising his children to be young adults.

It also leads me to ask: Are the boys are too young to learn how to fight? Watch the video and decide for yourself.
