Rolling With A Dummy

The title above is referring to a ground bag, not an actual person…haha. This is a great tool for any BJJ practitioner or MMA fighter.  I feel that the ground bag helps work on basic fundamentals and at the same time allows one to open up their imagination and creativity. There are many positions, transitions, movements, and submissions available to work with allowing you to make your own drills and sequences of moves. The ground bag can be used to warm-up, when training partners are unavailable, or during a period of injury.  I have used this tool quite a bit throughout my journey, but have grown more appreciative towards it the last few years.

In November of 2010, I suffered a brain injury that required surgery and forced me to stop MMA.  No matter what the doctors told me, it wasn’t going to stop me from doing BJJ. After being house bound for about two months I was able to start getting my mind and body back to normal.  As soon as a was healthy enough, I began teaching again and working predominately with the ground bag.  I wanted to stay in shape and not lose any of my movements.  I know that the use of the ground bag was a big help for me.
Today there are many different grappling dummies with arms and legs that can be purchased for this same type of training, however, all you really need is a simple ground bag or heavy bag. Below are a few videos going into more detail about how to use this tool to supplement the training you already do.
