    Developing Flexibility in Grappling – The need for Post Training Massage and Mobilisation

    Most people think of strikers and high kicks when they consider the need for stretching to increase flexibility in Martial Arts.  Athletes in combat sports such as BJJ, MMA, Judo and Wrestling are typically guilty of under appreciating how developing flexibility in grappling can up their game, reduce the likelihood of injury and aid recovery.  Post training massage and mobilisation has long been used in Eastern Europe by athletes amongst each other to help these aspects and prepare appropriately for their next hard session.

    Having a set routine to follow then can be of great benefit for any coach or athlete.

      Yoga has been my best flexibility tool. We often incorporate yoga into our warm ups in San Jose at Ralph Gracie BJJ academy. My range of guard play, and inverted game increased quickly when I started doing yoga several times per week. Massage and other stretching right after training is great as mentioned in the article. I find yoga to be a great restorative practice on off days between training as well.
