    I made one using heavy guage electrical wire for a skeleton/frame, fleshed it out with heavy foam padding and pool noodles, covered it with lots of 3m duct tape, and stuck him in a gi.

    It cost me about $ 100.00 cdn to make. I use it once in a while to practice new techniques when I have spare time, but there really is no substitute to live rolling.

    I've been training bjj for 3 months and now I am on a duty journey and no bjj class here. Not to forget submissions I am thinking about purchasing a dummy. Can anyone tell me which one is better bubba vs submission master? I have read reviews here - http://bjjmonsters.com/best-grappling-dummy/ but still can't decide..
