BOB was the first-ever mannequin training bag for martial arts. So, what is it that makes a Body Opponent bag so special? BOB gives you a realistic human torso shape for a striking surface. Since you are training to fight against a human (presumably) this shape allows you to train with a higher level of accuracy than a regular heavy bag or punching bag. The best sparring partner money can buy! A great partner for sparring techniques or target training.

I found Bob to be easy to set up once I used soap n water to help Bob slip on his insert easier. Then I beat on Bob In many ways and had a great work out. Its a big plus to have a Bob for accurate striking. I like it better than a punching bag. The realistic body neck and face makes Bob a completely different striking work out that a punching bag. So far I am a huge fan.
