Lighting A Largish Rectangular Room

A bit of a challenge here. I'm wanting to use some flash in a room used for martial arts training. It's a room about 50 feet long by about 20 feet wide and a fairly low ceiling; perhaps 10 feet or so high. My idea is to suspend a couple of speed lights on the "long way" in diagonal corners using 40" shoot through umbrellas more or less aimed towards the center of the room in the hope that I can get enough light to be able to shoot in an active environment while freely roaming the room.

Here is the room from one end:

And here it is from the other end:

Is this a realistic approach? If not, what would be some recommendations? Instead of using the umbrellas, perhaps bouncing the light off of the ceiling would be a better approach?

My challenges along with having enough light is to also keep the flash units out of the way and get enough coverage.

I feel more like I do now than I did before ...
