Who are we?
We are obsessed with the design and manufacturer of high quality grappling dummies used for Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Brazilian Ju Jitsu (BJJ), combat training, self defence and by security forces. Solo training is an often overlooked aspect, and we are all about getting the absolute best out of the solo training experience.
How did we come about?
WAY BACK in 2002, our designer Duane Riley looked around for a grappling dummy to fill the gap in his own solo training. He found equipment was super expensive and hard to buy in New Zealand. Using a bit of "Kiwi know how", his first dummy was born.
TWO YEARS later after a lot of trial and error, MAXIMUS quietly emerged from the workshop. Some time later MAX was developed, and now both models live in gyms and lurk in the spare rooms and garage floors of hundreds of keen rollers. To our great delight, MAX and MAXIMUS are sought after around the globe. We've also taken the features and functionality of both the Max and Maximus dummies to create GLADIUS, our most versatile training dummy ever.
