    Has anyone ever trained with a dummy (and not the ones that sits next to you in class)?

    I found this website after watching a basic skills video on the web...

    Is this a good training tool or is it like riding a moped...its fun until your friends find out?

    Pros - you can work on your already good techniques and make them better.

    Cons - you can make your bad techniques even worse... & price

    I plan on getting one one day though to work on throws.

    So many real life dummies that are available seems like a waste of time IMO

    Eh, I live over 100 miles (round trip) from my dojo, and there is no one close to me that really wants to roll.

    I do! at first I thought it was not worth it but when I gave it a try, it was great as a supplemental training. Can you imagine how many reps of armbars, triangles and chokes in an hour? with proper instruction and orientation, a submission master dummy could help a lot.

    where did you gets yours from? I've been seriously considering it to tighten up sloppy submissions.

    Sorry, but I could spend $600 on roughly 10 private lessons with a black belt that would be a far better value in my opinion

    yeah dude, there are literally so many people that will let you drill on them.


    NOT!


    Good luck finding anyone that will let you drill on them anything more than 2 moves. A grappling dummy is LITERALLY just waiting for you to drill on it. You can easily work so many transitions on it it's not even funny.

    I would only recommend the submission master. it's amazing.

    I'd rather spend the 600 once and then forever have a dummy. This week alone I've done over 200 reverse triangles from the back. I constantly found myself trapping an arm and getting in position for it, so I decided to drill the shit out of it. It's helping a lot....

    Not to mention it's also a punching bag.

    To work guard passes, tie a belt around it's legs and squeeze inside of it. you can setup the passes, but the guard itself won't open. you can rep the shit out of standing in guard -> hand position to open the guard, however.

    There are many kinds of grappling dummies out there. What makes you think that the submission master grappling dummy is the single most reliable dummy out there?

    Funny, even my friends that love to get in fights at bars and hang outs and shit wont fucking box or roll with me or my other buddy that trains.

    I think the dummy is a great idea as long as you are training in a gym that way your drilling correct technique and not trying to mimic a youtube video.

    You could train with your submission master grappling dummy anytime of the day but don't forget to train your muscle strength too. I mean muscle memory is good but without strength you wouldn't be able to pin your opponent. Combine training with the dummy and weight lifting. Muscle strength + Muscle memory.
