How To Use BOB in your Training

Training with Bob

If you’re looking for a training partner that provides a more realistic feel than a traditional punching bag, look no further than Bob. Unlike a regular punching bag, Bob is designed to look and feel like a human being. In fact, he’s sometimes referred to as a “human punching bag” because of the way he moves and reacts to your strikes.

But don’t let the name fool you – Bob isn’t a real person. He’s actually a specially designed training tool that is meant to help martial artists improve their technique and develop their skills. Bob is made of durable materials and is designed to withstand repeated strikes and punches, so you can train as hard as you want without worrying about damaging your equipment.

Bob was created by Century Martial Arts, there are four options available:

  • The original Bob with his standing base.
  • The Original Bob with a longer body.
  • The Kid Bob, is the bully for kids.
  • Bob with arms and standing base.

One of the things that makes Bob so effective as a training partner is the way he feels. Unlike a traditional punching bag, which can be somewhat static and unresponsive. This gives you a more realistic feel to your training and helps you to develop your timing, speed, and accuracy.

But perhaps the most unique thing about Bob is his appearance. With his tough, menacing look, Bob resembles a bully or a street fighter. This can be an advantage for martial artists who want to train for self-defense situations, as it helps to simulate a real-life scenario and gives you a chance to practice your techniques in a more realistic setting.
