It’s not enough to be able to throw a punch. An MMA fighter needs to be ready for anything his or her opponent brings to the Octagon, and must be trained in a variety of skills and techniques. Fighters use numerous body parts to strike (or hit) their opponent. Fighters use their hands, elbows, knees, legs, and feet to deliver powerful blows while standing or fighting on the ground. Since fighters are often destabilized during a fight, the ability to recover lost balance quickly, once they have become unstable, is just as important as being balanced when executing a move. StrongBoard is the ultimate balance board to include in a fighter’s MMA training regime to improve balance, strength, and endurance.
