Adding Arms to Bob


Please find attached an innovation to add arms to Century Bob.

I had a spare 3-sectioned staff.

Kindest Regards,

Hi Ally,

Genius! Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication :-)

For those who don’t know, here is the drill Ally is referring to in the first part.

All the best,

For those without a 3 section staff, an alternative is to roll a couple of beach towels together into a cylinder, and feed these through a gi top. I've constructed a whole grappling dummy this way and it works surprisingly well (weighs in at about 14kg of just cloth).

On Bob you would end up fighting the hunchback of Notre Dame as the towels would pass over his shoulders, but it may be worth looking at for some people if they're staff-less.
