    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    You can create a Grappling dummy using the following items.

    1. Old clothes and a pillow.
    2. Sweat pants and a hooded sweatshirt.
    3. Duct tape.

    Tape the feet and hands, closing them off.
    Stuff with old clothes.
    Pillow makes up most of torso.
    The open face is a stuffed t-shirt duct taped and stuck in the head hood.

    Total cost under 100 dollars US.

    Enjoy.

    That was pretty much how I figured it. I guess it would depend on the clothes you use, but that seems like it could probably use some weighing down. maybe some filled to the brim (tightly sealed) water bottles filled with either water or sand in the limbs?

    If you are really dedicated I found a guy with detailed instructions for making 2 different versions of a seemingly higher quality grappling dummy here:

    For just over $2,000.00 you can get the Adam TakeDown Machine and drill to your heart's content!


    Highly recommended!

    Solo drills rule. I believe it is an awesome way to learn the language of movement.
    And the coolest thing is your partner is at your beck and command, so your never waiting

    Here are some basics:
    Technical Stand-up (alternate sides and execute reps, reps, and more reps)
    Square Drill
    Shoulder Rolls
    Escape the Hips (shrimping)
    Circle your Feet
    Switch your hips (belly down/belly up)
    Head Stand (the basic)

    And Apparatus training is sweet

    Heavy Bag ( on the ground)
    work head stand , knee through, belly up/belly down, and the run around guard passes to start
    work all of the positions and transitions

    The Swedish Exercise Ball
    Oh man I love grappling with these things
    take high mount with no parts on the floor and when you choose execute a step over
    you can work so many movements and it really builds your attributes balance, sensativity, flow, timing, yielding, etc.

    Understand that you may train these as basic movements only or you may certainly visualize scenarios (shadow train)

    Mix it up and have a party. Also, when injured these drills are awesome. I have come back from long lay offs and have been told that I have improved upon my return to the matts.

    Happy Training! Respect.
