Nick,
I agree with Collen's observation about not stressing young peoples bones and ligaments to a dangerous degree. However, I do feel that young people can benefit from the discipline and strict code of behavior taught in Aikido and in the current climate this can only contribute to the greater good. The earlier we can teach them the better, although I would stress that very strict supervision from both qualified Instructors and 'mat marshalls'(i.e volunteer mums) and junior only classes would be necessary to ensure safety.
