Want to train at home but don’t have a training partner? In FMA, there isn’t very many options out there for training equipment. I decided to craft this Filipino Martial Arts training dummy prototype to see if I can at least influence the creativity on building something for our community.
The objective was to to keep the cost low and fairly simple to build. Its super simple. Just check out the parts list and video below.
- ProComm JBC986 Heavy-Duty 3-Inch Ball-Mount with Barrel Spring
- 4 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. Untreated Kiln-Dried Douglas Fir Dimensional Lumber
- 1 in. x 6 in. x 6 ft. Premium Kiln-Dried Square Edge Whitewood Common Board
- I misspoke in the video saying was $3. At Home Depot its about $7. It could easily be 2×4. I just used a spare plank laying around the garage.
Total Cost approximately $50ish.
