I use the sock type from Revgear.

The foot and heel holes ripped the first day. I keep using them, and they keep working. I probably don't use them enough.

<<<Knobby shins


We don't like the velcro attachment type when grappling is involved. Velcro + Skin + movement = blood.

Of course we use our legs (and attack the legs) more than most styles.

Ive seen many people have body dummies. Whats the best method(s) of making one? sweats and ducktape and sandbags? How about methods of training when its only myself and some books due to lack of resources to take classes. Or is a sandbag just all around the best?

Paul- find someone with similar interests, poke around the net, read books at the store (bring notebook to take notes), go to the library (tons of good wrestling, judo info etc).

I started learning grappling on my own around the mid 90's training with a couple of friends in backyards- we'd see a move, drill it, then try to apply it sparring. Youll probably pick up bad habits that way- but its a start.

I would at least spring for a mouthpeice and a cup though....

Well like Hanko Doebringer said in 1389.

"Practice is better than art, because your practice will suffice without art, while the art means nothing without practice"

whatever, whoever and whenever you can practice i think will do you good whether it is with a sandbag or a grappling dummy or just shadow boxing.

thanks guys,
For now i'll take Josephs approach. someone gave me the 2nd version of Shamrocks Lions Den Book and its got a lot of info in there. Would anyone recommend any good picks? I'd still like a grappling dummy to beat me up a bit anyone care to share how to make one?

Well you can get a decent work out with a heavy bag, just don't hang it or after you work some stand up striking take it down and use it as a floor bag, it can be for good for bridging strength and ground and pound, standing takedown's, movement from one side control going to the opposite side and back again, learning to roll with weight on top of you.

It's not a grappling dummy it can be usefull though, The link below has an instructional video for a floor bag workout, and the guy who does it(Mark Hatmaker) seem's to be a good guy, if you have question's fire him an e-mail and he is very good about answering them, i have done that on a couple occasion's and recieved prompt reply's.

http://www.combatsports.com/detail.aspx?ID=22281 The grappler shin guards are awesome. They don't move on my leg at all and during mma practice. They are thick and leather guards with neopreme wrapping around the back attaching it to your leg.

the dummy from the second link probably really works well. I owned a bubba dummy and he was a good investment I think. He was sturdy and stood up to major beatings. The second link is pretty much how the bubba dummy is built. I want to build it know I lost that think lol. Thanks for posting it.
