Balance Drill

A great drill for working your balance.

Sitting to kneeling to combat base to standing and back down again.

The kneeling and combat base part should be drilled as much as possible, you will often find yourself kneeling down in base with an opponent trying to off-balance you, this exercise get you used to having to quickly re-establish base and balance.

The standing part works the stabiliser muscles and makes the squat part way more difficult. It also works the adductors as you are having to hold the ball with your feet. You have to squat while fighting the multi-directional forces wanting to pull you around.

Grab a ball and start experimenting.
