What are your thoughts on mixed age classes-children and adults? Should there be an age grouping? What are the pros/cons of having parents and children train together? What are some things to watch for, plan for, prevent?

from our Kombat Kids forum (nice forum, btw)

http://forums.uechi-ryu.com/viewtopic.php?t=19491

This thread discusses appropriate ages and curriculum for kids (basically some basics for ages 4-6, then regular training around 8 yrs....but mainly dependant on child’s focus, child's maturuity, and the class environment/setup)

This thread has more discussion around ages and preventing problems outside of dojo (paraticing on other kids)....

This last thread lead me to an interesting ad'l question:
Is it better to have parents participate in a fundamentally children’s classes and children in a parent’s classes...or simply have a curriculum for mixed ages?
