I know i got the crap kicked out of me 3 times a day for quite a long time. Thats one of the reasons i started tae kwon do
This article is a joke. Anyone that has older brothers will tell you that when you are the youngest you want to do everything better then your brothers. I would think the youngest would be more competitive if anything.
My little brother just grew up to be bigger than me in the end - no need for Tae Kwon Do.

I'd have to call BS on that one too ORS - most middle siblings get away with murder because the oldest gets to break all the barriers first (like curfew and bedtime growing up - parents are always more lax with the later kids once the oldest has broken down their paranoia) while the youngest gets coddled like crazy as Mama's Last Little Boy etc....
Not saying that middle or youngest siblings CAN'T turn out to be more successful than the oldest but I doubt it is because they had to work harder - if anything they have had the gravy train rolled out for them by the oldest...
