Hey Bob,

My son & 1 are “Luvin the Masta!” I just wanted to say I am impressed with Smart Athletics and the Submission Master.

The videos you sent AFTER I got my SM were unexpected and really over the top. Great customer service!

(7) James says:

bob – i’m thinking people who voted for the bubba never tried a submision master. i sold my bubba and got yours. they just gotta watch the videos on youtube and it’s obvious submission masters ten times better!

(8) Brett Picotte says:

As the inventor of Bubba, I’d like to say that all three dummies look like they would be great for training. Good luck to everyone, and thanks to those of you voting for Bubba.

(14) Cade Ellar says:

The submission master looks incredible, but the shipping to U.K. is very high. Do you have any distributors here?

Hi Bob,

Cade – I apologize that we don’t have current distributors in the U.K. However, we have many customers from the U.K. The shipping is costly, but it’s available if you want it.

(24) jaewon sun says:

I like Submission Master dummy.
it’s the best on.

February 28, 2011 at 11:24 pm
(25) Jeff Kim says:

The Submission Master grappling dummy is my preference. It’s solidly constructed, has realistic weight not just for grappling but also cardio drills, and the arms even feature tension positioning (not floppy/unrealistic) to practice armbar resistance drills.

(26) Jermaine Alipanahi says:

The Submission Master grappling dummy is the key to the feature.
Not only will it help you with the martial arts technique for those that already know or would like to learn , But it will help shred those unwanted pounds and you feel like new person all over again.

(27) Josemm says:

I made an order to get a bubba but after few weeks of waiting they said I cant get one because my order didnt pass the fraud screening as if I where a terrorist or something can you believe that crap?!!!!! lol

I felt i was trying to do something really bad wich is not the case just wanna practice my jiujitsu

but im kind of cool now that i found the submission master at the end of the day i chosen bubba first choice because apparently it could stand for throws but now im watching videos and thats not really the case and you have to attach belts etc to keep his limbs in place so i think the submission master is better on the ground and i will just get another dummy just for throws and thai clinch like those stiff heavy bags looking like kind of human shape lol

at the end of the day bubba wouldnt really work for judo and thai clinch I guess.
