    Buying a grappling dummy

    My work hours prevent me from finding a lot of places that i could train. With the exception of my RDO's I am usually at home with my 9 month old son- My friend suggested i pick up a grapple dummy and drill the basic Jiu-Jitsu drills we had performed in classes I was wonder what you all felt about a grappling dummy? Is it worth the money? can it help you shave off some mat rust?

    im in a situation where I dont really have time for a gym. so I bought any and every training device I could get my hands on. I think a grappling dummy is a good choice. but I would try and augment the dummy training with any number of guides on the subject. jiu jitsu university by saulo riberio is a good choice. so is the open guard by bj penn. youtube also has allot of good info. try seaching for submissions 101. if ya cant find a coach you can still get lots of good tips
