So you have figured out that the wife or girlfriend isn’t you best choice for practicing your grappling with when you are away from class. The next thing you think of is a grapping dummy. That is just what I did. I began looking at everything they had out there. The first thing was to distinguish between a throwing dummy and a grappling dummy. Once I had that sorted out there were a few contenders, Make-My-Own, Bubba, Grapple Man, and the Submission Master. I decided that making my own was a waste. Even though there were instructions on making one out there, I just didn’t think it would come out right for me. Of the pre-manufactured dummies Bubba was the cheapest, then Submission Master, and last Grapple Man. I decided on the Submission Master. It will sit up in guard and the arms will hold position. The Grapple man, although the most life like, was far to expensive and limp as a wet noodle. The Bubba although cheaper just didn’t have the stance that the Submission Master did. I could only find the Bubba on eBay and not for a real discount. So I ordered the Submission Master and it is due to arrive tomorrow. The process of ordering it was very haphazard. The site is poor and when they sent me the UPS tracking number it was incorrect. So far I don’t have to much faith in the company that is selling them. Lets hope the product is as good as I think it is.
Once I follow the break in instructions and start to really use the Submission Master I will do a review on it and let you know if it is really worth the money.
Here are the Reviews I have done so far:
