At a local high school here in Virginia they have canceled their football season due to a fight. The first thing that I thought was "this would not have happened if they were in MMA, or an associated combat sport." I may be way off, but you may agree!
Sure, fights are going to happen. Kids will be kids, but where is the line drawn? I don't think they should have canceled the season, they should have used it as a learning experience and put them into wrestling.
When you are in combat sports you learn self discipline, confidence, and a maturity that is often missed in typical sports such as football, baseball, or basketball.
I don't know those kids from any other, but they are just kids. They need to be put into a place or sport where they will be able to learn how to act. Instead they no longer have football and may not have a positive manner to release this energy.
If their punishment was to join the wrestling teams, then they could be required to work for a purpose. Who knows, they might actually learn a thing or two.
What do you guys think? Is it just me, or could putting these children into some sort of MMA, jits, judo, or wrestling program help?
