Flexibility training often consists of different stretches to keep your body limber but also helps in the art of MMA as you can get into tighter positions within submissions and grappling. Balance training can also be an excellent factor when you are fighting, as one little punch or kick could knock your balance at any one time, so training to stay up on your feet can be vital, especially if you are fighting a well-known ground worker.
