84-Year-Old Former Wrestler Demonstrates Takedown Technique On Purple Belt Grandson

Some wrestlers and grapplers truly are lifelong athletes… and many go on to practice their love of their sport to future generations.
84-year-old Les Turner is among these dedicated athletes, and his grandson, Logan Stout, has followed in his footsteps. Turner wrestled through college and coached for three decades, while Stout wrestled in high school and is currently a BJJ purple belt and coach at Stout Training in Pittsburgh, PA.
Check out these two generations coming together as Turner demonstrates how to do a duckunder-to-breakdown technique on his grandson. If this doesn’t inspire you to push yourself more in training, nothing will.
