My dojo does not offer children's classes, I suppose my size had more to do with me being allowed to train than age and maturity (I lacked both at the time). I'm just glad they didn't turn me away as they could have... my life would be much more different (and I doubt much better) if they had...

I'm going to have to stick with my 'judge the individual, not the age"... I've seen a 10 year old sankyu with more discipline and technique than some nidan I've seen...
