The fact you PR'ed after not pulling for 2 weeks is a great indicator of the overall issue. You are overtrained in my opinion. Your marital arts training is highly physical and physically taxing. You are augmenting it with a relatively high volume of intense work with compound movements. The end result is a lack of progression with your strength training. As you likely cannot reduce your grappling work, I suggest you alter your strength training and reduce volume. So, for example, you might reduce your strength training to a 2 day per week split alternating squatting and pulling week to week. Instead of 5x5, drop to 3 sets of 5. I can almost guarantee you will get stronger.

Banded DL with 60-75% max, but try to increase velocity of bar. i.e. pull the bar as fast as you can. Recommended 2-3 reps, rest 10-20 secs, repeat. 4-6x.

Idea is to move the bar as fast as possible, you begin to show signs of fatigue after 2-3 lifts.
This^^^^^. Need to work speed under a lightened load with some resistance. That has worked for all our folks. We use the conjugate method for strength. It works.
