BOB XL (Extra Large Body Opponent Bag) is, in my opinion, the best piece of equipment you can purchase to take your game to the next level. If you want to get those strikes and punches perfected, problem solved!

Manufactured by Century, this product remains on the best seller list month after month, year after year. It is an excellent sparring partner because you can dish it out and not worry that you will hurt your opponent or that he will get fed up and punch you back.

What is a Body Opponent Bag?
It's a freestanding punching bag in the form of a lifesize mannequin. No need to hang from the ceiling or to hassle with a stand, simply fill the base with water or sand and you are good to go. When you are through with your workout, roll it back into the corner or tuck it away in a closet.

Should you want to take the bag to spar with a buddy or bring it along on vacation, just empty out the water or sand and refill when you get to your destination. It is something a heavy bag cannot offer.

Although there are several models of the bag such as the Sparring BOB (BOB Regular) and Bobby Bully, the child size BOB, the XL version is my favorite and is the one I workout with. The main reason is that it has a longer torso and includes the groin area so there's more striking surface area for body shot training as well as kicks.

Along with practicing your kicks, strategic target points, chokes and punches, you can use it for weapons training and self defense techniques too. One reason it is so versatile is there are seven height adjustments from 60 inches to 78 inches tall. I am short so that is a fantastic feature for me.

Weighing in at approximately 270 pounds, the bag is stable and will not slide or wobble. You can focus on giving your workout all you have, instead of worrying that it is going to move around.

What about quality?
Because the Body Opponent Bag is made by Century, you know it is well made. Century began producing martial art products in 1976 and is today recognized as the largest supplier of martial arts products in the world. Why? Because they offer excellent products at reasonable prices and that is something we pass right along to you.

The XL retails for $399.99 and the shipping is normally over $85. We found a great deal on shipping and share that savings to you. We ship fast too.

How can we do this and why would I?

I wanted to bring the marital arts community a great deal on a good product, which encourages practice and sharp skills.

Your product is going to come right from Century in Oklahoma and arrive in 2-6 days depending on where you live.

If popular demand has anything to do with it, BOB XL is the best of the best when it comes to freestanding bags and I must say, I agree, BOB XL is a hit!

Our price is rock bottom and we compliment that with low cost shipping and courteous and efficient customer care. Look no further and get your xl-ent new sparring partner right here!

If you are looking for a smaller bag that costs less and is still sufficient for good training, Sparring Bob is an option you might consider.



We have never had a complaint on BOB, in the past 5 years I have been selling him. The base is sturdy and he holds up to the rigors of powerful kicks.

The life-like features make him good for target practice. We have even had some people practice weapons on BOB.


Some martial artist practice their chokes on BOB. They have also shown it takes more precision to attack BOB XL than the heavy bag. BOB does not give though like the heavy bag, which will make for some stronger muscles.

Praises have been made for the versatility as well. BOB can easily go in a corner and makes a great place to hang your gi, gloves or jacket, in between workouts!

Eric Wong trains UFC fighters such as Jeff Joslin, and he wants to train you as well.
He believes there is a "better" way to train and I agree.

This training method is faster and more efficient than most, leaving more time for skills training.

I've looked at a lot of training manuals, and I am biased about training.
I like what Eric is doing and recommend his book.
