“Do you really like your Submission Master Grappling Dummy?” is the first question I get followed by “Is it really worth the price?”. To which I always answer “YES!”. I know its expensive but so is that latest gadget or fashionable thing you want. It all comes down to where you spend your time and money. I am getting zero time at the gym or BJJ class because the economy has me hard up (See How has the Economy Affected your Jiu-Jitsu). My Submission Master is paid for. I can roll with him anytime. He never complains and I never feel guilty about taking my time figuring out a choke on him. Yes, he isn’t a 100% swap for a real training partner but he does an excellent job helping me practice my chokes, sweeps, and escapes for the most part. He has real body mass (70 lbs.) and volume. He holds a basic in guard posture. Although resetting him each time can be a little tiring I get a work out while practicing. If I don’t want to reset then its up to me to come up with combos that do it for me. I have a good time tapping out my Submission Master. I’m glad I bought him.
The makers of Submission Master did not pay me or give me anything to say this. I don’t even know who they are.
Jiu-Jitsu is Life and Life is Jiu-Jitsu
