A young ace under UFC star Alan Belcher and black belt Daniel Moraes’s tutelage, Quinten “Fast Hands” Logan is just nine years old, but has big people’s dream and Jiu-Jitsu.
It’s no wonder he earned the “respect” of the all-powerful Dana White.
It’s still too soon to know what Quinten will get up to in the future. What’s remarkable, though, is how, in Jiu-Jitsu, you can even learn by watching a nine-year-old train.
Lesson one: sparring and fighting start on the feet. To make the most of that, “Fast Hands” specialized in the double-leg takedown, a weapon he uses to take his opponent off balance and start the fight in an advantageous position.
Lesson two: The first move sets up the second, the submission. Thanks for the tip, ace.
What about you, what’s keeping you from taking your kids and little cousins to the Jiu-Jitsu academy nearest you? Invest in the future of the sport, but mainly invest in the future of the little ones.
