The New & Improved, Grappling SMARTY 2.0 is here!
Check out the video on the front page of our website for a detailed description of all the awesome improvements!
This standard-size SMARTY 2.0 is modeled after roughly a 5'7'' (170 cm) human shape. If it were a human, it would weigh roughly 155 lbs (70 kg).
If you would like to suit it up, we recommend the size A3 Gi for most brands.
Despite the fact that the Original SMARTY had a 4.8 ⭐ rating, some of our valued customers made interesting suggestions for improvements, and we took these very seriously. Thank you very much for the feedback! 🙏
So seriously in fact, that this redesign took us another 9 months to accomplish from sketch to final prototype. And we didn't just apply ALL the feedback we received, but we actually went above and beyond and even introduced some improvements you couldn't even have imagined!
In a nutshell:
- Longer Legs by 3.5" (9 cm)
- Added a Chin for Chokes
- Added a "Thumb Bulge" for Angling Armbars
- Redesigned Shoulders for Increased Mobility
- Thinner Torso for Easier Body Triangles & Head & Arm Chokes
See the video for details and demonstrations!
Thank you so much for your support, and looking forward to fulfilling your order!

*Some local sales tax/duty charges may apply.
Please give us up to one week to get your order out the door, and transit time should take a maximum of about 2-3 weeks depending on your location.
Once received, just fill with about 50 lbs (23 kg) of used clothing or sheets, usually available by the lb/kg at your local thrift store (you will need to cut them up into small rag-size pieces), or at your local hardware or janitorial supply store in pre-cut rag format. You can find some online as well such as here: https://theragfactory.ca
Another option is to empty an old punching bag, or purchase a cheap one to use the stuffing, which is usually comprised of recycled fabric or rags.
You may also ask your local tailor(s) if they have fabric scraps to give or sell.
Additionally, we recommend filling the feet and ankles with Polyester Stuffing, so that the feet stay more upright for a more realistic supine position and better grip fighting with hands to feet. You will need about 2 lbs (1 kg). You can also fill the hands and wrists with Poly-Fill, but it is not absolutely necessary. An example product is found right here.
Not sure how to fill it?
Check out our video tutorial at the bottom of the front page of our website right here!
The fully filled Grappling SMARTY weighs about 50 lbs (23 kg) following our recommended filling instructions. You can make it lighter by adding more Polyester Filling and less recycled fabric.

Inventor of the Grappling SMARTY
I spent time to research which one to buy. The design on the smarty made sense to me. I spent time to cut up the rags into smaller pieces and took time to stuff it so it was compact. It did take a decent amount of time to fill the smarty but it’s worth it. It’s nice to have something to practice with . The quality is good and Believe it is worth the money. I find myself more motivated to try set ups if I don’t have a partner to try it on. One thing that sticks out is you can use real pressure and strength on it to see how it feels, which is good to have . Thanks again !
Thanks for the great review, B.R.!
Heavy duty material similar to a quality punching bag.
I bought two- 2.0 adult and smarty kid. It was a work out just filling them both with old clothes. I am sure they will last for years.
Thanks Raul, glad you like it!
We used the toughest materials available :)
This seems to be a high-quality product w/ absolutely no issues so far. Thank you!
Thank you, Nathaniel!
Good product, well made. Doesn’t move like a real person, obviously. So get used to that aspect and you’ll improve ur jitz with hours of repetitive drilling, I can spend two hours figuring out and perfecting moves on the smarty. Really well worth it if you like drilling and not annoying training partners with the boring, drilling aspects of jitz. This will, without a doubt really improve your jitz. I just hope the smarty stands the test of time and top pressure 🤣 amazing customer service as well
Thanks for the kind review, Claire!
Happy to help :)
Marty was purchased for individual use for drilling subs, passes and other technique, will never see much abuse. Seems very well made. Followed filling instructions and polyfill recommendations, worked out really good. They were not kidding, this thing takes A LOT of scrap linen/clothing! No complaints whatsoever. Good buy.
Thanks for the kind review, Philip!
Have fun :)
