You could try....

1.Fighting on a trampoline.
2.Fighting in a zero gravity environment.
3.Attach strong elasticated ropes to the ceiling and then onto your belt. (But that may result in violent headaches).

There is a program that you can use that can double your vertical jump. The program is guaranteed to give you at least 6 inches of vertical jump in 60 days. I have heard from some who have used it that they were able to increase their jump to 40 inches and more. You can click the link for more info.

You don't need to buy any of this stuff. Jumping, while a function of strength is more a function of speed. Muscles have 2 types of fibers, slow and fast twitch. You cannot change the ratio fo what you were born with but for jumping you need to target the fast twitch fibers. This is done thru Plyometriv training. WARNING - Do not over train this way.

You want to jump higher then jump. Plyometrics are a good training tool.

jump squats
stretching
sprinting

pretty much anything that involves jumping.

To measure your progress. Get a rope and tie it between two stands just enough for you to jump over. Try jumping over it over and over again till you can't make it over anymore (be careful of falling flat on your face). Or find a high wall to jump up on to. Eventually when this gets easier and easier set the rope higher or find a higher wall.

I would respectfully suggest only securing 1 end of the rope, with the other end set in a way that it falls if you make contact, so the rope falls & not you.

it also helps to lose weight if this is a factor. I beleive you can increase the strength in your muscles many time without increase the size.
