Combat Sambo is a Russian Martial Art that began development in the 1920's. Combining a wide range of throws, take downs, sweeps, ground work, submissions and chokes. Also having a comprehensive stand up game including striking and weapon work. Sambo is often called Russian Judo due to its heavy influence from the Japanese art. Russian Sambo has many similarities to Judo and Jujitsu, with its own identity and path to victory.
Becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable is an important aspect of all martial arts training. Whether in dealing with the daily stressors life can give, competing in a grappling tournament or having to defend yourself... we need to calm our mind, be able to focus and make good decisions. Sambo does this, we face death night after night. At our Academy we joke about Sambo being "simulated Murder." In many ways it is, as scary as that may sound. You may be thrown, pinned, choked and arm bared. You will tap out night after night and be motivated to get back on the mat for the next class. Being placed in these enclosed positions and submissions is good for you. You quickly realize when you calm your mind you can escape or change the situation into your favor. All scary stuff aside, Sambo is plenty of fun. We have a fantastic, knowledgeable crew of Sambists. Everyone here is understanding and encouraging. We all work together to see each other succeed. For beginners, no one wants to see you get that throw, position or submission more than your fellow students. The most intimidating part is stepping into your first class. With some short time and dedication, you will be the reason folks tap!
