Inspired by the fact that NFL players tackle tires as part of their training as well as have special dummies and other cool gadgets they practise clinching on in solo training to simulate line tactics so common in Gridiron.

And its not just American football players, Rugby players and even Australia's AFL have special pillows and stuff for individuals to practise tackling and clinching on alone.

So I am wondering if its in anyway possible to practise grappling on a typical Freestand Boxing Bag like this?

If not all range of grappling, would it be possible to at least practise clinching and tackling along with other rush forward take downs? To what extent range of moves can I practise on?
