Too dangerous for children?

I don't think it's healthy to teach young children joint locks. This can make their joints unstable and cause them problems in later life. I think young children are better learning Judo. Aikido can improved through out your life so there is no rush.

I think that it's better to wait until the age of about 14. Judo in the mean time can be used to develop ukemi, fitness and balance.
