What do you mean by "balance"? Are you falling off balance while throwing strikes, are people able to easily able to take you down, what?
I'm all in favor of strengthing your legs, but I don't think that improves balance directly. If you want the type of balance that helps you stand on one leg, that's okay too, but I don't think that is the same balance you use while moving dynamically in combat.
If you want to improve that type of balance, just keep practicing your techniques. Only do them as fast and as hard as you can keep control. Or try drills like this: Close your eyes, and have a buddy push you from behind without warning. Not blast you, just hard enough you have to take a step or two. Regain your balance, turn, and strike 3 times. Reset and repeat.

Get a new inner ear.
Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog
