Have there been any MMA or famous kick boxers that are flat footed?

  1. Have there been any MMA or famous kick boxers that are flat footed?


    I'm wondering this, because I want to become more flexible and get good at kicks, but was wondering if being flat footed would throw me off balance, or put me at a good disadvantage, or if the shoes I have will kind of make up for any lose in balance. I wear a pair of new balances with arch supports and basically don't feel right without them on. Truth idk if I developed flat feet or was born with flat feet, but the flat feet would explain why I have minor scoliosis that developed during puberty.

  3. Having flat feet will have no bearing on your ability to throw a kick or become more flexible. I have flat feet and can throw a high kick on either leg from either stance. If you feel off-balance, then you just need to improve your technique.

    Wasn't sure if I should post there since this is about me and not about a MMA fighter or any upcoming MMA event.

  5. I am flat footed and have legit kicks. You just have to keep an eye on your feet that you keep your weight on toes to get a proper pivot.
