I’ve had my Submission Master Grappling Dummy now for about 1 month. I’ve been using him in a daily drill routine that I formulated. I have to say I really like my Submission Master and last night it paid off. I’d been work on the Triangle Choke, Arm Bar from Guard, Triangle Choke to Arm Bar, and Arm Bar from Mount. I got 3 of the 4 last night in class. What I really liked about my drilling with the Submission Master was that it gave me the physical feedback that helped reinforce my muscle memory. The more repetitions I did the easier it seemed to notice my chances for a submission and connect on them. For example I was having a hard time getting the transition from a failed Triangle Choke to a Arm Bar. I kept putting the wrong leg under the guys chin. After doing reps on the Submission Master for a week I instinctively transitioned from the Triangle to the Arm Bar. I’ve also noticed that working with the Submission Master has helped me realize how I need to lift my hips up toward the head as I work for submissions like the ones I’ve talked about. I know I keep blogging about it but with good reason. I’m seeing success and want to share what I’ve found out.
We all know that the more reps you put in the better you muscle memory. We also all can’t spend every waking moment at the gym or dojo. Using the Submission Master has become a good way for me to satisfy my BJJ addiction.
