Bosu Balls - Martial Arts Balance Training

The Bosu ball is another piece of sports equipment that is used to improve martial arts balance skills. The Bosu ball is a flexible rubber hemisphere attached to a hard plastic bottom. In order to create different types of exercises, the Bosu ball can be used either with the flat hard bottom on the ground or the flexible rubber half on the ground.

Balance training is necessary for martial arts students in order to avoid falling during advanced kicks, generating increased kicking power and punching power (as being off-balance reduces your power generation) and possibly reducing potential injuries when an opponent has thrown or knocked you off-balance.

Like a balance board, the inherent instability of this device allows the Bosu ball to be used for a variety of balance exercises. All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For more balance exercises, please visit the main Martial Arts Balance Exercises section.
