    Just wondering if anyone knew wher i could get hold of a punch bag that is shaped like a person? I've seen Robbie Lawler train with a similar shape one, but have also seen in a Rickson Gracie vid, a guy training with one that can stand up by it's self.

    It would be perfect for training ground drills and also throwing too. Any help would be very gratefully received.

    oh they have a "fighting man dummy" on there somewhere too. A little pricey, I'd recommend a partner anyway but if you dont have access to parters for sparring I guess this would be ok to learn a bit from.

    It is pretty much like that, but it was heavier and could stand by its self. Thanks for the link, i'll have a browse. The fighting man dummy is a little better, the price is NICE!!!

    I use my grappling dummy. I stand him up, and i punch the shit out of him imagining the face of the guy who injured me in training three weeks ago.

    lol, that do it yourself one is actually cool. Just get a sparing partner, I don't like to train with dummies.

    Yeah, it works pretty well. I prefer a partner too, but I have no friends :( ...lol
    Actually, I can rarely find time to use the dummy, let alone set up time with sparring partners. So it's a decent alternative.

    lmao. I can see when you use your friends as sparing partners why they might get alittle "standoffish" especally if they are not willing participants.

    It doesn't really take that long. I have NO skills for making things, and it only took me a few hours. I went out an bought all the stuff I needed, put it together and grappled with it the same day. Actually the process of taping the hell out of it takes the longest.

    HAHAHAHA!!! You should play it off. Like when they wake up, you should be standing over them like "DUDE! What happened?! We were watching the game and all the sudden you spazed out, and went unconcious"...lol

    I tried it already. The best you can hope for is causing panic on the freeway by dropping it off of an overpass in rainy weather. Good clean fun.

    Go for it! Get it on video if you can. More good clean fun.
