Depends on a lot of stuff. Are you interested in just getting some
discipline and an extra-curicular or are you interested in your child
also knowing how to fend off a bully?


Many people say Judo,


Judo is good.


but is there any reason why Tae Kwon Do or Kung Fu wouldn't be
just as good?


Depends on what you're after.


What age should kids start learning?


Depends on the kid. Not on how smart he is but on how "mature" he is.
Can he follow directions, can he keep from being disruptive, can he
participate well, etc.? Many schools that have childrens classes have
a minimum age so check that first.

All kids roll around and wrestle. Encouraging them to punch and kick
is usually something parents try to discourage at early ages.

What age should kids start learning?


When they are physically capable of handling the cirriculm,
emotionally capable of dealing with competitive defeat and mentally
capable of understanding what they are doing.

I'd say 30 or 40...minimum.

It totally depends on the parent, kid, style and teacher. I've seen
5yr olds play judo very well. I've seen 12yr olds who should be in
lock-down in juvie hall.
