Re: Too dangerous for children?

Hi !

There are many myths regarding children and technique .
I attended a course for children instructors and the word was ;children can do anything !
That being said , I will judge for myself what I think is safe.
For instance we don't do koshinage on our team ,not saying it can't be done , but
if the do it wrong they can easily hurt their backs ,since they are not strong and "stiff" enough in their bodies.
Taiotoshi might work - I will test sometime in the future.
Stretching while warming up will do little ,but get the blood flowing and warming up the major muscle groups is recommended.

yours - Chr.B.
