While these stories are similar to other testimonials that I have heard, I'm still wondering if there is any documented information by doctors with their conclusions on the safety of joint techniques for children in martial arts such as aikido.
There's a good summary here that's focused on strength training, but talks about the hazards of stressing the joints.

Best,
