WHAT IS COMBAT SAMBO AND ITS PARTICULARITIES

The COMBAT SAMBO is a universal combat type created in Russia based on a combinative* and complex** application of the most effective receptions of various techniques (throw-based, striking, grip-based, painful and strangle receptions etc.).

*Combinational application – consistent use in a bout of two or more receptions. A combined use of both one technique and different techniques is possible, depending on the degree of effectiveness of one or another combination in any given situation.

**Complex application – simultaneous use of receptions relating to different techniques. For instance, a painful and a strangle receptions or a painful and a striking receptions can be applied simultaneously, etc. Such application substantially increases the efficiency of each of these receptions separately, thereby significantly adding to the effectiveness of their impact on the competitor as a whole.

Combinational and complex application of receptions of different techniques are performed by the combat sambo fighter automatically (without a second thought), taking into account the particularities of the situation, including the type of the competitor’s clothing, on the basis of skills received as a result of special training. All this enables the combat sambo fighter to act under any circumstances as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The combat sambo is not something completed and finally created. It is a living organism which is constantly developing and improving, soaking up all the new, the most efficient receptions and other tactical and technical solutions used in a bout.




PHILOSOPHY OF THE COMBAT SAMBO

The basic sense of the combat sambo philosophy lies in the word "SAMBO" (an acronym for "SAMOZASHCHITA BEZ ORUZHIA" which means "Self Defense Without Weapons"). It means that all knowledge and skills gained while practicing the combat sambo may be used only for defense. Their application for aggressive purposes is unacceptable! Any person who violates this rule cannot be called a combat sambo fighter.
