Brand

Celebrita MMA is a brand that is available across the globe. They have started to acquire a very large customer base. This is because they do things a bit differently than other brands. They actually listen to their customer's feedback. In turn, they can make adjustments to their products which make them better than ever. The prices you will come into contact with are lower than many others. Unfortunately, this does mean you may be facing some durability issues. If you are searching for punching bags, grappling dummies, or other training tools this brand has a few options for you. The materials and designs they use are solid. In addition, their customer service is there to help. If you run into issues getting support is barely an inconvenience, whereas with other brands it is a major struggle. Overall, this brand is up and coming and we look forward to seeing what else they start to offer and the adjustments they will make to the products that they already have available.

Materials

Grappling dummies tend to be pretty simplistic. The materials used are all fairly common and the ones we see in this one are too. You will have two different choices of outer materials. Most brands do not offer any option in this area so, it's a nice aspect. You can order your dummy with a canvas outer or a leather outer. They are both fairly durable. It is important to note that consumers and the manufacturer have stated that the leather dummy does have an odd smell when you first receive it. It will air out over the course of time, however, it can be fairly annoying in the beginning. This item comes on filling. The only other material that is used in this product is a zipper. It is located at the back and used so that you can easily fill or remove filling from this item. Overall, the materials they have chosen are solid choices should give you quite a bit of use out of this training tool.

Quality

In terms of quality, we would say that this product is average. The materials that were chosen to be used are all decent. The leather is not the highest quality, however, it is above average. A canvas outer is also a good choice. Canvas tents to avoid rips and tears which is advantageous while you are training in Combat Sports like Judo or Muay Thai. The zipper of this product is not covered. This could lead to a bit of problem for some consumers as it could cause detriment to your skin. We believe that the quality of this product could be improved in a variety of ways. One of those would be adding a cover over the zipper so you don't have to worry about it while you're using it. Obviously, staying focused on your training activity is much more important than focusing on whether or not the zipper is going to cause abrasions to your skin.

Size

We were pretty impressed to see the multitude of sizes that are available. Most brands offer one or maybe two different sizes in their grappling dummies. This one, on the other hand, offers for different size varieties. What this means is that whether you are youth fighter or an adult you will be able to find the perfect size dummy for your training routine. Making sure to get the appropriate size will give you a more realistic training session. Whether you are working out at home or in the gym practicing with a dummy that is about your size can help your performance a lot. The smallest option is 40 inches long. There are two middle options one that comes in at 47 inches and the other at 59 inches. If you are a bit taller and looking for a longer dummy they also offer a 70-inch variety. As you can see, this is going to suit a huge amount of fighters regardless of their size.

Weight

Due to the fact that this option comes to you unfilled, you will be able to adjust the weight to suit your particular need. Each size option is rated to go up to a particular weight. Obviously, reducing that weight is easy. The smallest option is going to be able to be filled up to 55 pounds. Obviously, this depends on what type of filler you use. The largest option is going to hold up to 120 lbs. The middle options are going to hold roughly 80 to 100 pounds. As you can see, this is pretty versatile. Consumers really like the fact that they can add or remove weight as they please. These dummies make it easy to find the perfect fit for your routine. Training with one that is too light will be very unrealistic. On the other hand, one that is too heavy is going to wear you down and decrease the amount of time you will be able to continue training.

Style

This item is styled in a kneeling position. The joints are naturally bent and this is going to keep it in this position while in use. It offers a wide variety of training options especially when you're working on submission moves, ground-and-pound, or other mat related activities. You will not be able to easily stretch the legs out as they are made to be positioned in this fashion. There are many other options available when it comes to style. There are stand up dummies as well as ones that are repositionable to offer even better variety. Customers are very pleased with how they have styled this item and feel that it is advantageous and helping them perform better during sparring sessions and competitions. Overall, this is a smart design and style for a grappling dummy and we believe that you'll be quite happy with it if you decide to give it a try during your training sessions.

Durability

Finding durable items for your Combat Sports training is imperative. Obviously, when you participate in these types of activities you will be delivering consistent abuse to the training tools that you are using. If they are not well built this is going to be a problem. Unfortunately, many people have had durability issues with this dummy. They have noted that after only a few uses the seams burst. Most grappling dummies are made with reinforced stitching to ensure that this doesn't happen. It is especially seen in the high impact areas of the dummy. You will not find reinforced stitching on this option and it's a pretty big problem. Not everyone that is using them is having issues with the seams bursting but it has been mentioned many times. We are not confident that this item is going to give you exceptional longevity of use. This means it may be best suited for people that only dabble in fight sports, not ones that take it truly seriously.

Advantages

Finding a versatile training tool is a pretty big Advantage. You'll be able to work on a variety of different moves and Maneuvers when you train with this dummy. It can help you become a better, overall, Fighter. The position that this option is in is well-regarded among its users. Consumers like that you don't have to constantly fight to reposition it. It will stay in the kneeling position without any major work. Another advantage in using this item is the fact that it comes to you unfilled. Some people look at this is a disadvantage, however, what it does is give you the power to choose how heavy it is. Depending on what you decide to fill it with you do have true control over its weight. One other advantage in association with this item is the fact that they offer so many different sizes. It is uncommon to find a brand that offers several sizes in grappling dummies and customers like that they have more of a choice here.

Disadvantages

Looking over the disadvantages of items is just as important as looking at the advantages. Obviously, when you're making an investment into a piece of gear like this you want to know what the downfalls are. There have been many complaints by consumers about having issues with the durability of the seams. They have noticed that at the joints, the seams tend to burst. Some consumers are able to stitch it back up or secure it with tape, however, this is not something you should have to do after only a few uses. The hard-hitting nature of sports like wrestling and Aikido need pieces of equipment that can stand up to the challenge, not fall apart. Another issue that people have with this item is filling it. The opening is not very large so getting filler into the feet and legs can be quite difficult. You'll need to be patient and set aside a good amount of time to accomplish this task. These are the only two major disadvantages that we found in association with this product but they are big enough to be a deal-breaker for many.

Value

We feel as if this product is a pretty good value. The cost of it is extremely reasonable. Most budgets will be able to work it in easily. There may be a few of you out there that need to do a tiny bit of saving to call this grappling dummy your own, however, for most, they will be able to purchase it with relative ease. Obviously, we need to look at more than the cost to figure out what the actual value of an item is. There are some downfalls to this problem that may make it a deal-breaker for those of you that are truly obsessed with combat sports. As noted, seam durability can be a problem and if you're going to use this dummy on a daily basis, it's likely a problem that you will be facing. It does offer good size variety and the ability to choose your preferred weight. Overall, the consumers that are using this product are pretty happy with it and it is likely that you will be too.

Bottom Line

When you need to find an affordable option for a grappling dummy this one may suit your needs. It's not going to break the bank and it does offer very versatile use. You will get more options with this product then you will many others. Not only can you choose the outer material but you also can choose the filler. This is going to allow you to customize the dummy to suit your particular needs. When you're working hard at home or in the gym having equipment that meets your wants, needs, and budget can be hard to find. This item does check all the boxes for many fighters. Keep in mind that the downfalls that are associated with this are deal breakers for many people. However, many are satisfied with all of the aspects surrounding this product.
