I use the "walk quickly from car to office and car to grocery store" technique; combined with the "avoid any gathering of drunks" technique. Keeps me mostly out of trouble.

Do it!!!

Both my kids have been doing MMA for almost a year now. One started at 6 and the other one at 9. Both my kids love the class and have picked up many of the ideas and some of the moves. Their instructor holds a master or black belt in 6 disciplines but puts more of an emphasis on jiu jitsu.

I am a firm believer in MMA simply because there are good techniques in each discipline and knowing parts of other disciplines provides more tools and will give them experience on using your tools against moves beyond a single art. If I had to pick just one discipline for my kids (or anyone for that matter), it would be jiu jitsu though.

I am not a fan of karate at all. But kids think it all is karate, mine were the same.

Also, when looking at schools I think it is important that you pick one that utilizes contact and application. I have found that many schools only teach technique and discipline but don't ever actually use it in application. I assume it is so no one accidentally gets hurt, but it is truly pointless without it. Karate is notorious for this, but I have seen it in other disciplines also.
