Most Grapplers will mainly focus on improving strength and conditioning rather than flexibility.
What they fail to realize is that flexibility is extremely important in grappling arts because it really makes all the vast number of practiced techniques that much easier to do (for ex in Jiu-Jitsu: gogoplata, inverted guard etc..).
When you increase flexibility you are definitely going to help your Jiu-Jitsu game, particularly your guard, speed of recovery and it will make you less injury prone.
When you think of all the extremely flexible Grapplers, the following names come to mind BJ Penn, Nino Schembri, Cobrinha, Keenan Cornelius, Roleta, Eddie Bravo, Royler Gracie, Ryan Hall, Michael Langhi etc…What do they all have in common? They have amazing impassable guards and are all very flexible.
