Yeah, although I don't agree with you on all points, I believe there are some people who simply can not be changed.Yet, nowhere did you imply Eugene was a bad instructor.

"my son wants to act out in a violent manner. What should I do?? I know! Imma teach him how to drop motherfuckers!"the kid could have died either way. MMA isn't any better at saving the lives of misguided kids than any sport. for all the dad knew he was signing the boy up to train with sensei Kreese.

now why would you act like a child and blatantly reach with a question like that?mma offers an opportunity for people to get stronger mentally/emotionally/physically, but like anything else it is not a 100% cure all

Too bad, a lot of times people just need to let off steam and training is the best way I have found to do so. Regardless, if the father had known, he would not have made this decision.

trolling this thread should get those of you doing it a little vacation in my opinion.

Eugene sounds like an awesome guy. Those kids are lucky to get to work with him for free.
