In my opinion, the only time a three or four year old should be doing ANY kind of Martial Art is if the child's parents are the teachers.

Of course that eliminates the well thought out money grab.
In Taekwondo, it worked really well to help get kids used to a few things:
  1. There are other adults in the world besides mommy and daddy.
  2. There are other kids in the world besides yourself.
  3. How to listen, pay attention, and follow directions.
  4. How to learn new skills.
They did learn Taekwondo. But they also had fun and learned how to get along with other kids and how to respond appropriately to authority figures.

I like the systemic approach. There are ample sports a kid can do within the school systems. I feel there is more certainty that my kid will be in a wholesome group environment with trained professionals. ;)
Yes, there is a bit of sarcasm in this statement.
