Hey Fellow Grappler,
Patrick Fulop here, inventor of the SMARTY!
This was my lockdown project... 😅
Like many other martial arts school owners around the world, we were forced to close all in-person classes due to the pandemic.
We pivoted to 100% Zoom classes right away, and while that was definitely the best thing to do for our students and our business, if you've ever experienced virtual martial arts classes, you know it's not quite the same...
So our business definitely took a hit.
Furthermore, many of our students were stuck at home without a training partner, myself included.
Whereas I used to practice with my wife (an accomplished martial artist herself), in early 2020 she got pregnant with our very first baby, super sweet little Kyra!
No more Neon Belly drills... 😂
So I began looking for a grappling dummy.
I missed rolling, drilling, and sparring so much!
So did our students.
That's when I had the realization...
Grappling dummies suck!
How come nobody ever created a grappling dummy in an ACTUAL GRAPPLING POSITION?! 🤔
If you know anything about grappling, you know you should pretty much ALWAYS keep your knees to your armpits, and your elbows in front of your body!
That's what we call having a GUARD!
It's also necessary to be able to ROLL!
Most dummies on the market have wide-open chest exposure, and just lie flat like a day-one white belt.
Who wants to grapple with a CORPSE?!
That's when I noticed the opportunity 💡
Since nobody had done it already, I set out on a mission to create the perfect grappling training tool.
Let me tell you though, ideas are cheap, and execution is everything! 💪
You have no idea the number of sleepless nights, emails, sketches, video calls with our manufacturer, failed prototypes, trials, errors, and overall headaches of R&D that went into making the SMARTY a reality.
I also had to learn all about e-commerce, Shopify, social media marketing, order fulfillment logistics, etc. 🤓
But it was worth it because I knew this would bring value to the market.
I knew this could help my wife and me raise our baby girl in these challenging times.
And I knew that's what we needed to keep our skills fresh.
I was right.
The response from you guys since our launch in early 2021 (the same month Kyra was born 😍) has been overwhelming.
Thank you so much to all our valued customers around the world!
Lockdown or not, there will always be a need for intelligent training tools.
Much like the punching bag for striking, it doesn't replace a qualified and resisting training partner, but it can most definitely help you learn and practice technique, as well as develop your speed, power, and endurance.
By the way, the SMARTY can also serve as a punching bag! Have you checked out the SMARTY Harness yet? Right here: SMARTY Harness!
Whatever the future holds in store, we remain committed to our goal of making the Grappling SMARTY the new standard in the industry.
Our mission is to help martial artists everywhere improve faster thanks to the GREATEST INNOVATION in the grappling dummy space.
Invest in your training today.
You'll be glad you did.
Looking forward to fulfilling your order! 🙏

Why is the Grappling SMARTY the absolute best grappling dummy on the market today?
Thanks to this innovative, realistic design, the Grappling SMARTY can adopt ALL the major positions you might find yourself in while fighting on the ground!
- Supine (on its back)
AND it can even offer better control when in the top position, whether that be:
- Top Guard (or Half-Guard)
- Top Side Control
- Top Full Mount
... it can even hold on to your BACK for you to practice your escapes!
It can even ROLL!
What does this mean for you?
Well, now you can finally practice REALISTICALLY!
Instead of practicing beating a corpse...
Here is a non-exhaustive list of categories of techniques you can do!
- Guard Passes + Guard Retention
- Top Control + Pin Escapes
- Back Takes + Back Escapes
- Leg entries
- Turtle Attacks: Breakdowns, Go Behinds, Mat Returns
- Ground & Pound from EVERYWHERE
- ALL Submissions! (Rear Naked Strangle, Guillotine, Armbar, Triangle, Heel Hook, Etc. Etc.)
Not sure how to do all that?
You can follow literally any video tutorial you could find on YouTube or purchased video instructional with the SMARTY the same way you would with a human training partner!
And guess what, you won't have to play dummy for anyone! Ha!
Will it stand the test of time?
- Made from heavy-duty VINYL synthetic leather.
- Using 4-ply polyester/nylon ultra-strong thread.
- Reinforced double-stitch for extra durability!
We even added some special folded fabric extendable joints in the hips and shoulders to give it more range of motion without risking any damage to the fabric!
See the demo videos for the stress testing!
Lastly, if you're worried about hygiene for odors, or if you intend to share this awesome training tool with other people, rest assured!
Because the fabric is 100% waterproof, you can easily clean and disinfect it between sessions so it stays ultra-clean!
It won't absorb moisture like other fabric-made dummies...
So what are you waiting for?
Trust me, if you've been wanting to get a grappling dummy, or if you're interested in improving your grappling skills thanks to a training partner that's there for you 24/7, and always available to practice what YOU want to practice...
This is the PERFECT training tool for you.
Get yours today, you'll be glad you did.
Just be sure to leave a review once you've taken your grappling skills to a new level!
Practice well 👊

The product itself was more than I expected. It feels the most sturdy out of all the grappling dummy's I've tried. There was a mailing issue (NOT Smarty's fault whatsoever). But Patrick was able to help me through the process and got the dummy delivered. I almost cancelled and went with another dummy and I'm glad I didn't. This dummy even holds my weight with sprawling and sitting on it's back (I weigh 185lbs) Definitely recommend it to sharpen your grappling with a more realistic feel than the rest.
Thanks again Patrick!
Thanks for the kind review :)
Super outil pour s'entraîner à la maison et revoir les techniques seul.

Je recommande à 100%.
Très bon service client également,merci.
Merci pour l'avis, Damien!
Bonne pratique :)
Grappling SMARTY (Pre-Filled)
What can I say ? I’ve tried all the so called grappling dummy’s in the past and none have lived up to the expectation of this one ☝️
What sets this apart from others imo
Is the arms and legs and how they feel very realistic
I’m a busy parent and Gym owner
I use it on recovery days as well as drills i need to get in while home watching my kids
My daughter even uses it for training in our living room !
I train Gracie combatives on this and it works wonders for realistic fighting.
Thanks for the great review, Charlie!
Glad you like your SMARTY :)
Fantastic grappling dummy for anyone looking to do BJJ or submission grappling. There is no other grappling dummy on the market, that can give you versatility and positioning. Plus the customer service was amazing.
Thanks for the kind review, Justin!
Practice well :)
