We propose a novel mechanism to generate a collective quartic in composite Higgs models. We are inspired by the original little Higgs idea in which a tree level quartic arises from the dimensional reduction of 6-dimensional gauge theory. To connect to CH models, our model is set in warped 6D (AdS5xS1), deconstructed for simplicity into a two site 5D RS model. The size of the quartic is controlled by the ratio of the S1 and AdS radii. This leads to an interesting dense spectrum of KK states. In the presence of our independent tree level quartic, the tuning in Composite Higgs model is reduced by a factor of 2-3.
