That is wonderful that you got your son in at such an early age. I started my son at 4 1/2 and he loves it to, at 5 1/2 we entered him in the NAGA US Nationals in Atlanta, He ended up winning his division (He faced the son of NAGA president Kipp Koller in the final match). He is now 7 and unfortunately we have been away from the gym, but we hope to start back during some breaks.
You mentioned that a teammate of his won the TN state championships. What city are you in? We are in Nashville and train at Ed Clay's Nashville Mixed Martial Arts.
We are in Jackson, Tn. About 2 hours from Nashville. I know a couple of guys at Brentwood BJJ. Our kid's coach actually moved to that gym to coach full time.
