Now here’s something you don’t see everyday! A 10-year-old boy is more skilled than most adults, as he has become the youngest person to train in fighting and shooting at the Las Vegas gunfights.
Ethan got a black belt when he was six. He comes to the Las Vegas Gunfights to practice on real, human targets. The rounds are non-lethal training ammo, but they come at you faster and harder than a paintball.The owner of the Las Vegas Gunfights, Nephi Oliva, wants to recruit more kids Ethan’s age for a young guns program.“There’s no kid that goes out there and takes martial arts classes and then becomes the school bully. That’s not the nature of discipline,” said Oliva.Oliva believes this kind of shooting and fighting actually curbs violence outside the arena.
The young boy is training for a military career. What better time to start than as a child? By the time he is old enough to join the military, he will already be our very own Captain America!
