I definitely recommend plyometrics. They are a great tool for any athlete, and definitely apply well to martial arts. I wouldn't suggest doing plyometrics solely, but adding a 30 minute session once a week can do amasing things for speed, explosiveness, power, and also endurance. Here's a good link on plyometrics as well:
