Re: Dance, Wrist Locks & Sub-Teens
To be fair, I did a quick Google search and was only able to find one link to an article about the risks of applying wristlocks to children.
That being said, I think that you should not dismiss what the people here have been saying. It's not just their opinion, it's their experience. If it was just a lowly kyu ranked student with little experience in actual self defense situations like me posting, well I can understand if you didn't pay much attention to that. But some of the people who are posting here are not just black belts, they are people who are both highly trained and highly experienced in the martial arts and self defense. Their opinions are grounded in actual experience - not just theory, and certainly not just paranoia and fear as you suggest.
I'm not saying believe them 100%, just don't be so quick to dismiss what these people are saying.
