As a follow up, I've been working with my boy on both his fighting skills and his conflict resolution skills. I'm more than proud to say that he is doing brilliantly in both. He's had a few run ins with bullies at his school that he has handled well, and without violence. Well, there was ONE time where 3 kids were pushing around a smaller one, and he got 2 of his friends to go help, but only after he'd told the teacher and she'd been to busy to help. I was okay with his decision. smile
I've done exercises with him on conscious breathing, and other methods of getting his emotions under control.
I've also got him sticking those legs in when he takes my back. smile
His technical skills are pretty impressive for a seven year old. He can box and wrestle fairly well, knows several basic wrist locks, and seems to have an affinity for muay thai. All I know is, if I let him get me in any kind of clinch, I need to be watching for knees.
His takedowns are top notch, and a couple of times he's managed to take me down without my consent. Notably, he shot in on a single leg, and when I started to hit a whizzer, he headbutted me in the crotch and switched to a navy. I fell down.
All in all, I'm pleased to have such a good kid. He makes me proud in every way. He even gets good grades. smile

My 3 year old has some anger issues at times.At this age there little and its kinda funny when they snap but, some day they wont be.

Anyway i think the kid deserves a rematch.sounds like you used the hallway to your advantge,if he could have rolled you it was over,open mat he would have got you to tap.:)

He got his revenge today. We were playing around, and I did a duck under. He just skipped his near leg back and launched a monster knee to my solar plex. Well, as monster as a 7 year old gets. He got a satisfying "OOF." out of it. Then he tried to sink a guillotine. smile
