Before COVID-19, I'd never considered buying a training dummy. I'm a kinesthetic learner, so when it became clear that the pandemic wasn't going to end quickly, I realized that a quality dummy could be extremely useful for me. Looking around at the various options, I settled on Spartan Combat Equipment because their models have working joints and can be positioned and manipulated realistically. For me, especially during this time, the Gladius was an investment that paid for itself quickly, because it's such a versatile tool for problem solving and for clarifying new and familiar techniques (including takedown approaches). It's sturdy enough that I can foresee using it regularly for many years to come. Thank you, Duane!
Max has been an invaluable training partner. The level and quality of his construction is top-notch and would last any serious grappler a lifetime!

I was'nt sure what to expect when I purchased a Maximus model. I was very suprised at the amount of moves I could drill on this dummy, it's no joke. I've been in recovery from injury but I've been able to work through it to some degree with the dummy. I love how it's just there ready to go whenever I want, it's been an invaluable training partner for me. Totally reccommend this to anyone serious about grappling .
