Falcons embrace MMA training (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/marvez-on-glazer-falcons-mma-training-041610)
I like it. Doing different sports keep players motivated and interested rather than the same old drills they have done a hundred times.

forgive my ignorance

but what is mma training?

Mixed Martial Arts

wouldnt that make them more prone to injuries?

That would be good to help improve tackling, but there is a big risk of injury

I don't like the idea of any hard kicking. Could damage the knees etc.

Wouldn't wanna spar with Harvey Dahl, he'd ruin anybody.

Well i doubt they will be doing any up coming mma events
But its just like using boxing, helps stamina, quickness in your hands and feet aswell as co-ordination.
Something outside the box so i'm a fan.

By MMA training I dont think they mean actual Muay Thai or Jui Jitsu etc sparring but just the actual routines that fighters employ to optimise thier cardio and core strength conditioning.
