Shuffle Drills for Better Martial Arts Agility

In order to improve martial arts agility, many martial artists incorporate shuffle drills into their overall training routine. Shuffle drills also help with foot speed, balance, coordination, etc.

Agility training allows martial arts students to change positions rapidly and effectively. This allows martial artists to evade an attack or launch a strike at undefended area (i.e. moving laterally in order to avoid an opponent's blow and thus being able to quickly launch an effective counter attack against an off-balance opponent).

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For additional agility drills (i.e. agility ladder drills), please visit the main Martial Arts Physical Fitness section.
