Skaterdude sensei teaches balance exercises

Have you thought much about how to improve your psychomotor skills and attributes that go into making you better in martial arts?  I mean besides the regular dojo-type stuff you've been doing since day 1.  If you have, I bet you're probably thinking along the lines of strength and flexibility and power and endurance, that sort of thing.  But have you played with a balance trainer?  Here's a film that some skaterdude did on how to improve balance.  The first of these - the slackline - looks like a blast.  The other 3 I think are a bit crazy/dangerous to me.

  1. I skateboard and surf a lot and one of the means to improve my balance aside from exercise is by using a slackline and balancing up. It really improved my focus and balance - amazing! My friends and I just tie a slackline in the yard and off we go! It's a great way to stay in shape while having so much fun. It's easy to do but you really have to focus on the task to stay on the line. Are you interested to learn more? Then click on the link and see how to make a slackline for your needs:
