    I don't think any footwork increases that you get by training in the water will have any positive impact on your footwork while standing on land - probably the opposite if any. Your balance is totally different, and the way you can move in the water is not the same as the way you move on land.

    if all you care about is conditioning - you could train in a pool. You'd still be better off swimming though.

    As for developing fighting skills in a pool...if you plan to fight in a pool I think it's a great idea.

    Swim for a while to get your exercise, then jump the maid early in the morning to work on your standup, clinch and grappling.

    A friend of mine had knee surgery a few years ago and aftewards trained in a pool. Since the water relieves some of the weight the joints have to bear, he could still get some practice in. Even to this day, long since his knee recovered, he still likes the pool training, because he believes his kicking improved a lot after training regularly in the pool for a while... Probably for the reason that Pizdoff pointed out-the water resistance helped build up the leg muscles...
