Yup, it's true. She is. Smile

I sporadically train with my five year old daughter in martial arts. We do sword fighting, grappling and a little self defense.
I taught her to punch one time but she was so enthusiastic (and started getting very good) that we stopped.

Here's a clip of us just playing around with swords and a punch defense:

Here is some unarmed stuff (she only just learned these right before the video):

And, ever aspiring ninja in this day in age needs to understand the ground game:

EDIT:
I post these despite my own unflattering appearance to share my daughter's total awesomeness.
I'm still fat, but I've lost over 50 pounds so far and after another 50 I'll make some replacement videos Smile

I think it's great when parents do activities like this with their kids. I do the Gracie Bullyproof program with Liam and next year I will start Pennee on it too. Just need her arms to get a little longer.

I'm doing the same sort of training with my 2 year old son. He's getting pretty good at learning the defensive blocking positions, and the ways to reposte after a parry.

Cool.
What martial art(s) do you take?

Good ol' European-style fencing. I've done all three weapons (foil, epee, sabre.) I fenced sabre on the Varsity team in my high school.
