Note to kids on the playgrounds of Lebanon: Don't mess with Ramadan Ondash.
The 5-year-old future MMA fighter is seen here training with his older brother Ahmad Ondash, an accomplished Muay Thai coach who captured a bronze medal in the light weltwerweight division at the 2013 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games. And that makes this takedown all the more impressive.
Muay Thai is a staple of mixed martial arts. According to the always reliable Wikipedia, the discipline is also known as "the art of eight limbs" in reference to the use of fists, feet, elbows and knees in combat.
Cage Potato has more video illustrating the MMA prodigy's apparent mastery of all eight points of contact. Actually, forget the playgrounds. Note to everyone: Don't try to steal this kid's lunch money.
