Grappling at Home?
In another thread I posted this:
"Due to all this rain and snow, combined with some inferior home maintenance, our basement, which is a great deal of our living space, is flooded. I think its bad enough that I told my wife that we should gut the whole fucking thing and start over. Now, with remodelling in our future, she says, "I don't care what you do, as long as save some room for practicing and buy some mats." Talking her into class must have been a good idea if she is taking it that serious. Woo Hoo!"
This brings up a good question.
How many of you actually roll at home? :happy6:
If you do, are you giving yourself rugburns or do you actually have your own mat space?

I have done many types of sparring at home -- but mostly outside. I have a nice yard. Nothing too intense can happen in my house because it's small. I do my workout in here though. My weight machine and free weights are in my kitchen. People always seem to think that's funny but where else would I put them? I don't want to ruin the rug.

BUY A TRAMPOLINE!!!!! Those things are crazy. I used to have one (POS rusted over though. It was on sale for $300, apparently because it was defective or something =/) and all types of sparring on it were hilarious.
Maybe they won't help you spar realistically, but they kick ass nonetheless. :)

I think that a grappling dummy is the next best thing to an inflatable doll when it comes to scaring away girls.
