Would you do it? 

She's NOT a sensitive one.

Probably not.  They grow up fast enough as it is and 4 is little, imo...

I would not. Usually I think it's up to the kid, because they are all different, but not with something like this.

It pretty much is. We didn't go, as much as I wanted to. :/

I would if I thought it wouldn't bother the child. I think we make our children too sensitive by shielding them.

I would.... Ekkkkk my son is one though... He has watched daddy grapple during MCMAP . He is a black belt and I am sure he will be teaching my son.... My father in law taught all the sons martial arts since they were little so I see no issue. But it's up to the parents... The child's personality etc.

I probably would, if the child could handle it.  All of my children would have been fine.
