About Us

Is a Russian acronym for “Self - Defence Without Weapons”.
Combat Sambo: Sambo has incorporated almost every form of fighting technique found in any martial art today. This composite style of fighting includes: grappling, striking, throwing, joint locking, kicking, ground fighting and defending against weapons. It constantly keeps growing and evolving.

A brief history: Sambo was created in Russia after an extensive study of many martial art styles from Asia, the Middle East and Europe. As well, Sambo experts incorporated many techniques and tactics from street fighters, a number of these techniques were included in Combat Sambo.

Types of Sambo: Today Sambo consists of three components: Sport Sambo (Olympic Sport), Self -Defence Sambo, and Combat Sambo.

Sport Sambo is similar to the sport of Judo but with some differences in rules, protocol and uniform.

Self-Defence Sambo is intended to be entirely defensive against attacks by armed and unarmed individuals. It is also very useful for rape prevention and for children’s self-defence. The advantages of weight, strength or size of the opponent are reduced markedly using our techniques.

Combat Sambo is designed to prepare an individual to be effective in any fighting situation. The main purpose of Combat Sambo is to “SURVIVE”. With its ever-growing arsenal of techniques adopted from many martial arts and fighting forms, it is one of the most comprehensive self - defence and survival systems in the world. ​

Close Quarters Combat (C.Q.C) Sambo: CQC Sambo was devised for training by elite forces and former Soviet Union special commando units (Спецназ). Its training methods feature the most effective ways of preparation for Special Purpose Forces. The goal of C.Q.C. is the total control or neutralization of the opponent in the most expedient manner.
