Mixed Martial Arts, Jiu Jitsu, Karate and kickboxing are some of the most demanding physical pursuits known to man. Martial Arts training include a significant amount of balance training, core strength training as well as agility and stability training. Since 1998, the Indo Board has been used by more martial arts training professionals at MMA gyms, UFC gyms and karate dojos than any other balance board on the market. Whether you are just beginning your journey as a martial artist or you are a seasoned mixed martial artist, the Indo Board is the most versatile and functional balance board available for all martial artists.
In my training routine I incorporate stability balls, elastic bands, yoga, heavy bag, gymnastics moves, and the Indo Board. While very simple in design, the Indo Board allows you to perform a large range of unique exercises. In my first week of training on the Indo Board, every time I stepped on it I found myself discovering another challenging skill to conquer.

Can a correlation between the Indo Board and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu be drawn?
Jim Barrett puts it this way: “The Indo Board and the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are much the same in that they are easy to learn the basics, but as you focus on the subtleties of each movement, and as your understanding of the position deepens, the landmarks that guide your action begin to shrink in time and space. It is then that you realize that there are infinite possibilities and more than a lifetime's worth of skills to master in both pursuits.”
Are there many big name MMA and BJJ athletes that use the Indo Board?
Indo Boards are a staple in most of the top martial arts training facilities including Orange County’s Black House. The list of top MMA fighters in the world that have trained on the Indo Board include: Anderson Silva, King Mo Lawal, Chuck Liddell, BJ Penn, Jason “Mayhem” Miller and many, many more.
