We are proud members of the Sambo Fusion program under Master of Sport, Judo Black Belt and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Vlad Koulikov. This is not a separate class, we apply Sambo techniques in with our Jiu-Jitsu classes offering a more well-rounded overall program for our students.
Sambo is a Russian martial art and combat sport developed in the early 1920's and it is a hybrid martial art combining Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, Kurash, Alysh, Catch Wrestling, and several other styles.
The word SAMBO is short for SAMozaschita Bez Oruzhiya, which translates as "self-defense without weapons."
Sambo has produced some of the top fighters in Mixed Martial Arts:
Fedor Emelianenko, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Oleg Taktarov, Gokor Chivichyan and one of the most titled Sambists in history Alexander Pushnitsa.
