Yes, it keeps them fit, is fun and teaches them discipline.
It depends on the child.
No, it is too violent.

Yes, for the reasons listed, and because it can make children (and the grownups they become) more confident and self-reliant.

Everyone should know some basic self-defense.

Depends on the child but it's a fine form of physical discipline.
