Why Children Should Fight
I see that children should fight. As a child, fighting should not be repressed. Children need to get it out of their system early. When they are young, they are yet to become dangerous. They are yet to become harmful towards themselves or others. They do not yet have the strength or precision in technique in order to cause great damage to another. It is natural for them to play fight even though they may really be upset and want to hurt but their bodies are incapable of hurting.
It is like trying to kill your opponent in a pillow fight, as long as you are not trying to suffocate the opponent, there will be no serious injuries, it is all for play. If children fight when they are young, they are more likely to get it out of their system so that they will not have the urge to fight when they are older. As children become adults, fighting gets more and more dangerous. As the child becomes stronger and begins to have proper martial technique that is expressed efficiently, he becomes dangerous. Now it is no longer a pillow fight, it is like throwing rocks at one another out of anger. Now there can be some serious injuries.
Now fighting is no longer just an anger release that is harmless, it becomes a dangerous experience that can lead towards great bodily injury. Once the child is a fully grown adult out of high school and college, the real survival fighting for your life begins, now it surely is no longer a game, now weapons can be involved, now guns can be involved, now death is of great potential. You never want to fight as an adult; you do not know what will happen on the streets. It’s ok for adults to play fight by sparring, but it is never a good thing for adults to fight for real on the streets.
