Re: Too dangerous for children?

I completely agree. The emphasis in teaching children is teaching ukemi. In 17 years of teaching children I have had only two injuries in my class. Both were injuries from "falling" and both occurred when I was a fresh beginner at teaching children. Joint locks are unnecessary.
