BUBBA II Grappling Dummy.....the idea is great, I have been looking forward to own it for at list the last 2 years.
DON'T BUY IT!!! DONT, and if you do good luck with it. Impossible to stand, no even laying against a corner. Cant keep it in the gard unless you put a heavy bag on is legs and tie his ankles. Its floppy all the time, the gi pants wont stay on. ITS MADE OUT OF NEWS PAPER ( for stuffing), the joints they talk about are intaerly made out of DUCT TAPE. AND THE GRACIE ACADEMY ENDORSES IT? WTF? Do your research first, look at all reviews before you buy. Look at the negative ones because those are from real people. I was lucky because my was defected, so it went back free of charge. Again THANK YOU AMAZON>COM FOR THE GREAT COSTUMER SERVICE YOU ALWAYS PROVIDE.
When I put in on it's back to train mount, I found out I had to hold it's arms up to do my arm bars. Don't believe the videos and the pictures... it just falls flat. Whatever it's skeleton is made of just isn't strong enough to support the weight of it's limbs and structure, so it just falls flat. It's basically a big rag doll.
I've tried a lot of other dummies and settled on getting 2 of them. For takedowns and striking while standing, I use the Combat sports legged dummy. I put it in the ring corner and work from there. It's great for that, but you can't do submissions. I also got a Submission Master dummy. It's really good for jiu jitsu and submissions in general, and it kneels inside guard so I can practice my guard game. And it's arms and legs don't fall flat, so it's good for mount, too. IMO, it's the only good submission dummy. You can't do takedowns on it because it doesn't stand, so you might want a combat sports dummy to round out your training, too.
I also put a gi on my Submission Master (size A4) and it works great for gi chokes and open guard training. It's big, probably equivalent to a 6 foot guy, and weighs around 70 lbs (like the other reviewer said, dead weight is heavier, so don't think 70 lbs. is too light!)
For me, I'm about 6' and 155 pounds so I find the Bubba dummy a little too heavy at 60 lbs; it's like they say, dead weight is a big difference from live weight. After I've been under it for a few minutes, I'm like "get off of me!". Ideally I'd like to be about 15 pounds lighter. Also, the neck is a little large and hard, which makes it a bit painful to attack with chokes (but like I said, I'm bony - for you it might be perfect). Probably it softens up if you use it a lot, but I tend to just learn the move and then take it to class. Durability of the foot coverings could be better too, since they're basically socks (replaceable) - they bear the brunt of Bubba being dragged around so they get worn through pretty quickly even on a mat.
Anyway, that's why I only give it 4 stars. But if you're thinking you need one of these, you're probably right, and I don't think you'll be disappointed. Also, Bubba's being made professionally now, so the model you get may be improved.
