I trained my cat Molly from the time she was 9 weeks old. I would put a hardness on her (DO NOT USE A COLLAR WITH LEASH AS CATS CAN GET OUT OF THIS) also make sure that the harness is not loose around the chest because the cat will try to get the harness off at first and they can hook their bottom teeth in the leash. Get a pet store to fit your cat with a proper harness. Take your cat out into the backyard (NEVER take your cat out where it's in too open a space or too much noise.) Wander around with the cat for approximately 5 minutes and do this for 3 - 4 days and each time you take them out go out for 10 - 15 minutes. I've seen many people travel (camping) with their cat on a leash and that's what my cat wears when we go camping and fishing.
