Sport, but above all martial art based on efficiency, Sambo was created for the army and the police needs. The name was taken from the Russian expression "Samozatchita Bez Orugia": self defense with no weapon.
At the beginning, the Russian soldiers were commissioned to create Sambo. Then they developed it to make it a full fighting system with an extraordinary logic and an exceptional fluidity between the standing work and the follow-up on the ground.
Sambo is an endless style which enables everyone to be able to respond any fight. Sambo has been proven in MMA, notably with Oleg Taktarov, UFC 5 & 6 winner.
