Grappling Dummies
 
I have been trying to find a judo or wrestling type dummy that I can use for explosive training for picking up and slamming and maybe some ground and pound. I'd prefer it to have limbs and a head and decent weight
Does anybody have any info or have used one that likes it?

very expensive................... we got one at my work and i made everyone laugh when i did a koshi guruma and finished with an arm bar, during cpr training class.

in my judo and bjj we have nothing like that, the training aids we use are

tension bands, hooked up to the wall

we got two of these.... i never seem to land on it, i always miss and land on the synthetic tatami

all our other equipment is pretty much for striking.

aids are good, but i feel the best is a partner/teammate, to tell you if your balance is right or the grip is wrong, your telegraphing your throws....

One guy at my gym uses the "Pregnant Lady balls" all the time. It really helps the core muscles with certain exercises and helps with balance and speed

I always wanted one of these for some good practice and training. Very expensive and rare though.

Grappling dummies are freakin' expensive. You're probably looking at an easy $400 investment before shipping like the I&I Sports Grappling Man Dummy aka the "Bubba Dummy" (pictured below).



I know that Mark Hatmaker released a DVD called the Floor Bag Workout which outlined a lot of suplexes and slams utilizing a 100lb heavy bag if you don't have a dummy available. It's kind of hard to find, but it's definitely a reasonable alternative.
