Whether you are going for a takedown, defending a takedown, passing the guard, or even when exploding to a new position, the feet are integral in being effective in all of these tasks.
In this video I share a multi-faceted approach on how to deal with foot pain.
1. The video demonstrates a way to stretch and reduce tension in the plantar fascia (the tissue under the foot).
2. Mobilize and improve range of motion in the ankle joint.
3. How to stretch the calf muscles.
This is a solid warm-up (shorter hold times and more dynamic stretching) or a great cool down to decrease tightness, pain, and stiffness after a tough training session (longer stretches and hold times).
