Since Century introduced the original BOB® Body Opponent Bag back in in 1998, we’ve gotten several requests for a BOB with arms. We decided to test out the old saying “the customer is always right” and gave our Research and Development team the task of creating a product that would give BOB arms. They came up with this jacket, which fits on the Original BOB. Equipping your BOB with the BOB Jacket allows the martial artist to practice an even wider variety of moves: for example, parrying, or knocking an opponent’s hand out of the way before throwing a punch.
You can also practice blocking techniques or bobbing and weaving around the arms – critical skills in many fighting arts. Additionally, training on an armed BOB gives martial artists a feeling for how to work around arms when throwing body shots or kicks.
BOB is used for stand-up striking arts, like karate, tae kwon do, Muay Thai and tang soo do. The realistic head and torso make it great for self-defense arts like Jeet Kune Do and Krav Maga as well. Like all of our products, the BOB Jacket is designed to stand up to the toughest workouts. It’s constructed from vinyl with reinforced stitching, and the arms are filled with high-density polyurethane foam. Fits BOB and BOB XL.
