Fight vs Fighting

Me: Ok.  No more sword fighting!  Put the swords down.

Tornado E: Mommy, why is it fighting and not fight?

Me: Because you’re doing it right now.  Not something you do.  It’s all about doing it at that moment.

Tornado E: Hmmm.  Like I’m talking!

Me: Yes.

Ok, what kid pays attention and asks about verb conjugation?
