Combat Sambo Is Versatile & Features a Complete Range of Proven Techniques for Your Success

The old Russian martial art has brought us some of the most renowned champions of MMA, Fedor Emelianenko, Andrei Arlovski and now Khabib Nurmagomedov. So the question is why do Combat Sambo athletes do so well in MMA?

First off, Combat Sambo starts in a standing position where strikes are allowed. The fight can and often and does go to the ground with strong wrestling and judo takedowns in the arsenal. Once on the ground, they strike or grapple for submissions and control positions.

With this type of rule set, Combat Sambo resembles MMA more realistically then any other martial art. The striking arts do not teach you takedown defenses, BJJ often times does not teach you how to strike and wrestling doesn’t really cover submissions. Combat Sambo covers all of these areas. So by the time an athlete has decided to transition to MMA, they already have a solid base in all the major areas of the sport. This gives them a huge advantage.

Another edge a Combat Sambo athlete has is their ability to blend their techniques together. Blending the use of strikes to takedowns and takedowns to submissions. Often times these Mixed Martial Arts techniques are trained as separate disciplines, but in reality when they are mixed together they are extremely effective and practically mixed into training like they are in a real confrontation.

Combat Sambo Training Benefits All Ages

Students can benefit greatly by receiving the best coaching and instruction in Canada. Our teachers formulate a game plan and training regime customized for each students abilities, strengths and weaknesses. Our oldest student is 67 years old and trains with the young teens without a care. Safety is a number one feature and students learn first how to fall safely on a “sissy” mat this is very soft.

All martial arts have their benefits, and all martial artists have their personal goals. But if MMA is your goal, Combat Sambo is most likely one of the best foundations to have. It simply gives you a complete and well rounded fighting system that translates very well. This is why Combat Sambo athletes do so well in MMA. And if your base is not in Combat Sambo it would not hurt to adapt some of our training methods into your own art. Use striking to set up your takedowns, chain together takedowns and submissions, and shorten your round times on the ground to give you a sense of urgency to escape or finish the fight quickly. Young students start out with learning the fundamentals only later moving into more difficult and age appropriate techniques.

This is a GIFT that will last a lifetime through school, college and into the work world.
