I wish to start my children with BJJ from 6-12, then fencing and horseback archery from 13-18.
I swear I’m only mildly autistic.
What sports will you be teaching your children /xs/?
>>
>>71124
Judo to develop their throwing and footsweep skills, and then wrestling probably.
>>
>>71124
Whatever is cheapest, most, popular, and accessible in the area so probably basketball and football.

In Russia/ex-Soviet countries, it's common for them to put kids into gymnastics until they're around 10-12 before moving them into martial arts. This gives them a base of athleticism, flexibility, and body awareness.When they start learning judo/wrestling/sambo/etc. they can jump right into learning technique without needing to do heavy conditioning like a totally raw prospect.

It makes sense to me. Prodigies aside, most kids aren't developed mentally enough when they're 4-9 years old to understand the nuances of what they're doing. Physically they're also still in that awkward "uhh how do I move my body" phase. It's more efficient to teach them technical stuff after they've hit puberty and their brains/bodies have developed enough to actually comprehend what they're doing.

So for sports my hypothetical kids would do
>gymnastics until they're around 11 or 12
>grappling (probably wrestling through school or judo) until 18
>striking (boxing and/or muay thai) until 18
This should put them in great shape and give them the skills to be able to defend themselves in a confrontation.

I'd need to be able to attract a partner before I even planned anything to do with having children.
>>
>>71156
Yeah no thanks, gymnastics makes you small because to achieve better maneuvers you must be lightweight and underfed.
Fuck that my children will be 6’6”+ for the men and 6’ minimum for the woman.
>>
>>71124
your kids can get herpes from grappling
>>
>>71231
How?
>>
>>71124
You should obviously push your kids into athletic pursuits but they will never go the way you want. My dad wanted me to go into baseball yet boxing was my bread and butter.
>>
>>71124
Early on? Whatever has them using their entire bodies. Climbing, parkour gyms, even capoeira.
If kids are no longer going out into the field and parks, artificial ventures are okay.
>>
>>71124
BJJ for the ground game.
Judo for the stand up grappling.
Muy Thai for the stand up striking.

Kids have to learn not to be afraid to take a punch or go to the ground alike.
>>
>>71494
My nigga.Those little shits have to learn how to take a back bump.
>>
>>71124
Boxing
>>
>>71124
>horseback archery

why though lol
>>
>>71520
Maybe he's a steppenigger or a rednigger.
>>
>>71520
That's Ghenghis Khan's 3 manly arts plus fencing for some reason. Maybe he thinks his kid is going to be a warlord.
>>
>>71248
Are you stupid?
>>
>>71671
Yes I am. So what, do wrestlings become serial boy kissers on the mat or what happens?
>>
>>71675
Herpes spreads by contact with the fluid from the sores. There's even a version commonly called "mat herpes" that remains viable on surfaces (like a wrestling mat) longer than the others. This (alongside other skin diseases) is why it's important to wash mats, do skin checks, and shower immediately after wrestling.
>>
>>71731
Interesting, can I avoid this with powders and such?
>>
>>71745
There's a lot of snake oil for grappler's skin health. Anti-bacterial soaps are popular in the BJJ sphere but these are actually counter-productive since they eliminate the natural microbiome on your skin, which is kind of like wiping out your immune system before traveling abroad.

Anon above has the right of it. The most important thing is for everyone to shower beforehand and immediately after and the mats should be disinfected thoroughly after each practice. There's a particularly nasty variant of staph that can lead to paralysis that likes to settle into the dank corners of mat space that often goes unwashed, so its really important that your gym cleans the shit out of the floors. Also people need to stay home if they have any active sores. You would think most of this stuff would be common sense but you'd be surprised.

>manly arts
>BJJ
pick one

Mongolian wrestling stops when someone hits the ground. Genghis would call you a faggot for rolling on the floor like a BJJ player.
>>
>>71124
>getting your kids choked out repeatedly during critical brain development period
Retard. Judo or actual Jiu-jitsu are obviously better options.
>>
>>71156
the fall of the USSR was a global historic tragedy
>>
>>71767
Genghis is fucking dead I would have triangled his bitch ass anyway, you can enjoy your moral victory of being the one to shove us to the ground but i will be the one that remains conscious
>>
>>71124
I don't think I'll teach them anything. I'll just brag about how much fun I'm having with mountain biking, cycling, and bouldering so they want to do it. I don't want to force them into something just for them to hate it when they get older, I want to trick them into it

>you can enjoy your moral victory of being the one to shove us to the ground but i will be the one that remains conscious
you won't be conscious after you're spiked headfirst into the dirt
>>
>>71124
Boxing, wrestling, weapons depending on what's legal at the time. Also track.
>>
>>71520
Archery is fun
