  • Sambo or not to Sambo?

    I'm looking at moving to a more grappling/wrestling/throwing type style than what I've been currently doing (hapkido and MT/boxing).

    Hapkido has a few throws, takedowns and grappling, but not to the same level of detail and extent as a style that is primarily focussed on those things.

    One style that has caught my eye is Sambo. What are peoples opinions on it, how does it compare to Judo, and other wrestling/grappling styles and is it recommended?

    Thanks.

    Many of my ranked judo friends also train/teach Sambo... and BJJ.

      So is it recommended as a good functional style or not?

            Sambo's great if you have a dojo/gym in your area, they're just really hard to find these days.

              Sambo has sick leglocks. Like bjjexpertise said. Sambo schools are rare. Awesome if you find one. Another option is Catch Wrestling.

                  No problem at all. Glad to see you responding to the topic! I like Sambo. I've had the rare privilege to play that a bit and it's very good to "flow" and roll and lock a joint or destroy it? They don't have much for strangle holds but don't underestimate it for spine locks or hip locks. If you can wrestle, you can Sombo! BIG FUN!
