    I was quite surprised to see her pull guard too, she won't get away with that against any good grappler though. Her opponent literally did nothing/didn't know what to do from top position.

    Edit: She didn't initially pull guard, she tried a very slow leg scissor leg tangle. It was a nice win, but I can't pretend like her opponent knew what to do lol.

    Yeh, but I guess Scholastic Wrestling is just sambo with no jacket and submission, but more pinning, so it may be redundant.

    I know, I just like leg locks and the general aggressive submission style

    Go to Russia, or any ex-soviet republic and you will find several sambo schools in each city. It is quite cheap to train, too. Even to buy equipment (jacket, shorts and shoes) are really cheap. I buy kurtka for almost $50 (3500 rubles).

    You will also see good sambo fighters :p I don't know how sambo is in the uk, but I have watched few matches from UK championships - it was interesting.

    Hello,

    Well.. Russia of course. Georgia, Ukraine and Belarus also tend to get good medals in the worlds/european championships. So there. maybe Azerbaijan, too. But they like more of Judo.

    As for going to train at any of the former USSR countries, it is quite the experience.
    My best advice, regardless of your technical level or experience, is to get your conditioning and physical shape up over 9000 levels.
    In most of those places, even the "recreational" guys train almost every day, so if you are not in shape, you will not get the best out of the training, let alone enjoy it (or make it through it).
    As for cost/benefit, Ukraine is amazing. Great athletes, coaches, installations and prices (on everything) are much cheaper than Russia, particularly Moscow or St. Petersburg.
    Belarus is also a great option and they have many world championship.
    Also, Bulgaria can be an option for combat Sambo.

    I am a noob when it comes to grappling sports, but started to become more interested now (used to be my least favourite aspect of MMA, I come from a boxing background and always been more interested in striking arts). Sambo, and combat sambo in particular, seems awesome!

    That new FW UFC buzzsaw Alexander Volkanovski credits rugby for a lot of his takedown skills. Although he wrestled as well.

    There´s some crossover, one of my judo mtes is an ex rugbier and while it took time to get the technique his strength is useful. He still has some problems with posture though.

    The rugby, and American football guys probably be better in a non jacket wrestling style.

    For sure but they still know how to push and feel strong in judo.
