I like this idea. Teach kids how to be gritty and tough.
I agree to an extent.

Of course I was kidding, I would have thought that was obvious. My point is that encouraging kids to settle their differences on a "conflict resolution mat" encourages the idea of violence being able to solve your problems and that is a slippery slope. If you want to teach a kids wrestling or how to defend themselves with marital arts, that's great but do it the right way with discipline, respect and restraint.
Those aren't mutually exclusive...

"Working out your aggression" is a thing. You don't need to necessarily make decisions based on what happens in the fight, but if two people are very angry with each other, allowing them to fight each other in a regulated way is better than waiting for one of them to ambush the other in the playground or something. So long as it's clear that this isn't the only way that things happen, I don't see the harm in allowing it to exist.

When taught correctly, martial arts can be used to educate children on how to control their urge to violence. It can teach them how to defend themselves, as well as the merit of discipline and hard work. With the added benefit of giving them a physical activity to practice and release some stress hormones. They can learn restraint, and when it is actually necessary to resort to physical defense. In some cases, leaving them untrained and unrestrained can be more dangerous. Unfortunately, it would be extremely easy to handle wrong.

I say yes for martial arts it helped me quite a bit you need to teach them to not only fight with your fists but also how to fight your emotions. if I didn't take judo for around three years or so I would probably be much more of a hotheaded annoying pain in the butt then I already am XD

I dunno, sounds like it would lead to a lot of future anger problems in workplaces. The world is a much more civilised place than it was before, and peace is needed to keep things stable instead of the other way around. Organised martial arts is also about instilling discipline into a person, so that they won't use their skills unless absolutely necessary. Fighting as a way to resolve conflict is a thing of the past.

Unless it's in a war. But it's a school, so there are none.

Lol, true enough. But usually, at the end of the day, all the people at a school are still living.

I believe this is the right question.
Should you be lucky enough to balance the correct number of murdered babies with adequate hours of volunteer service at children's cancer hospitals, you'll end up Neutral.
