I only have a moment, so I'd like to add a few points on this topic.
One--as a parent, I'm all for the boffer tourneys for kids.
Two--in order to limit our liability in this matter, we should include a
rule that no adult (18 or over) may compete or for any reason wield a
boffer against a minor.
Three--why segregate the kids by height? Adults compete with no regard
for size differences. I would think age a more reasonable gauge. A
short twelve-year-old who ends up competing against mostly nine- and
ten-year-olds will likely be embarassed at having to play with the
Four--most of the dojos here in Austin offering children's classes start
them out at five. Why do we need to wait until they're eight? We could
have pee-wee tourneys (5-8 year-old class).
Good work, Sir Dieterich. Let us know what you hear from the Powers
