If you guys want I can post some pics on how I made my own dummy.
Basically, I used thick electrical cable (almost 2 inches in diameter) and put 2 thick pillows together for the torso. Then duct taped the whole thing together arms legs and all. For the head I used a thick old shirt and bunched it up put it around a mop stick which converged with the torso. I duct taped that as well.
The whole thing costed me about $180.
I use it on the ground and for stand up I hang it off of some pull up bars.
I can pound on it and grapple it, it works great for both.

I’m very close to buying the whole set as well, especially as it’s now more affordable. About another month away.

Any more comments about the material covered and how you go about practicing would be appreciated.
