Josh Haynes is the latest fighter to relocate to Vegas to join Team Couture. Josh made the move from Oregon where he trained with Team Quest. A few years back Josh met Randy when “The Natural” was with Team Quest. Randy invited Josh to train with him. But it took Josh some time to get in a position where he could move (read Josh’s amazing story here) and by the time he got to Oregon, Randy had left for Las Vegas.
Josh on leaving Team Quest, “It was just time to go. I did everyihing I could do there. My growth was stagnant. I needed something to open the doors and bring me back to my old self. I look forward to training with people who have fun doing what they do. Intense professionals, coaches as well as fighters. ”
In addition to getting his career back on track with our world class fight team, Josh is going to help take our Kids Program to the next level.
Josh will be teaching an Advanced Kids Class on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-7pm in the cage. He’ll teach beginners Saturdays from 11am-noon and an Advanced class on Saturdays from 1pm-2pm. He’ll also begin holding Kids submission tournaments. We’ll announce the date of the first one soon.
Josh says he’s looking to grow the Kids Program. “I want to help the kids get from where they are now to where they want to be. Help instill life skills in them. If they get their skills down now, by the time they’re my age it will be easier for them to get into the sport. I’m also looking to have fun with the kids. These kids are as much athletes as the adults are. Start to develop them at an early age, they’ll be pros. It’s cool to be part of that at an early age.”
The kids are going to be in good hands. They’re with a professional. We’re thrilled to have him as part of the team.
