Um, keep her away from weapons forms, then.

I used to do a lot of (organized) fighting.  I did boxing and kickboxing at a local, competitive level, and I got any full-contact work I could.  I loved the contact and competition, and I genuinely enjoyed laying leather into an opponent, even if he was a good friend.

Later, I picked up some grappling styles and started doing mixed-art work.  That was fun, too, even if there wasn't as much pure hitting going on.

Now, I'm comparatively out of practice, older, and slower.  But I'm more dangerous in a real fight, because I don't fight for sport now.  My mental conditioning is about incapacitating someone.  I set aside a little time each day to keep a little bit of aggression burning in case I need it.

A few moves and some sparring will be good for your daughter.  If she really seems to be conditioning herself to kill, something a little weirder is going on.  I wouldn't get my daughter going that way until she's about 11.
