I have two new potential students. Chance is a young man about 10 days old. He's very enthusiatic. Joshua was born this past Thursday. He's a little more laid back. Two new grandsons and what MA should I start them in ?

Seeing as how for the next several months they will be on their backs anyway, how about BJJ? Great time to start work on the guard.

Congradulations! (Two new grandchildren, born days apart must have been one heck of a party... )

They can start martial arts at ANY age, but will solely receive the FLAVOR, a hint, a taste of the larger picture older children can access. 4-5 would be the earliest I can conceive any attempt.

Start with dance/a basic gymnastics classes... when they are excited, (and you think able...) Judo is my vote. Balance, strength, wrestling all rolled into one. Ideal, IMHO-fwiw.

you should steer them well away from that art "cryosleep"
its were they are actually asleep but manage to cry their heart out in the middle of the night and drive their parents mental, very effective.

Youngest Karateka I've Seen

This is the youngest karateka I've seen. His moves look a little more JKD than karate though. Congratulations

They should have already been practicing sanchin kata in the womb. Why are you waiting so late to start them?

If you get a chance, let Taba Sensei know. He was excited to hear that my wife was about 5-6 months along. He wants to see her when he is here.

Congratulations.

I'd suggest BJJ because they are naturally going to go through a stage of rolling on the floor and getting people to come to them.

At their present age diaper fu is very effective. You might discover they are naturals.

Congratulations
