    Not to bump an old thread, but start him on a Pistol Squat progression. Pistols have helped my balance a lot.

    Start with maybe Air Squats, Bulgarian Split Squats, Box Pistol Squats and then finally Pistols. Just work into the pistol squats, may take a while depending on how strong he is. Maybe start him on some basic gymnastic stuff to help stabilize the core. Hand stands and tuck levers (on a pull up bar) are good. Also Hanging Leg Raises work the core a fair amount and should help his balance.

    As for quickness, have him shadow wrestle. Its something that has helped me a lot with my speed. Also can help with balance if you shoot doubles, singles, high cs, low singles, etc in a straight line, 5 - 10 shots down and back, next move, down and back, etc. Jump roping will help your quickness too.
