New Sambo School in Winchester, MA

There is a new school in Winchester MA that has put out national and international champions in just a few years. They just added BJJ. I want to start on Wed night. The instructor is an ex- Russian special forces instructor and 4th degree sambo bb. Have people heard of this place?

Sambo - 7

Interesting. It's only half an hour from where I live. I might have to check them out.

I had a hard time navigating the site and finding a schedule. When are their classes?

Maybe. I am not sure where I got that because it is not listed in his bio. I watched a class and these guys go hard.

Andrei is a world-class instructor with multiple awards and achievements in Judo, SAMBO and Mixed martial Arts. He is the creator of a widely successful Self Defence Videos website, that has helped thousands of people globally to learn self-defense in an easy, well structured way.
Andrei began his sports career in 1978 in the Olympic Development School of Moscow “SAMBO-70” - one of the most prestigious schools in the former Soviet Union. From 1983-1985, Andrei served in the Special Forces of the Soviet Army. After his army service, Andrei acquired his bachelor's degree from Central University of Physical Education. Following graduation through 1991, he worked as a professor of physical education in MICI University in Moscow, where he was also a head coach in Judo, Wrestling and SAMBO teams. In 1991, after immigrating to United States, Andrei worked as a Fitness and Martial Arts Instructor in the Boston Area. In 1994, he opened International Massage Therapy Center in Arlington Massachusetts. From 1995-2006, Andrei was a staff member of the Boston Bruins Hockey team providing muscular therapy services and traveling with the team.
In 2006, after retiring from the Boston Bruins, Andrei began forming his martial arts studio. In 2007, the SAMBO-7 School was created. Two years later, in 2009, team SAMBO-7 became the Champions of the International SAMBO USA Open Championship.
Andrei's mission is to popularize his SAMBO passion in the USA and the World.

They only train three times per week but it is for about three hours.

According to SamboSteve, these are the kinds of claims to be skeptical of, as they're nearly impossible to verify. What is his name?

Andrei Popandopoulo. You can look at his web-site. He is real because I saw him in pictures as he was training police departments and military groups. He is training corrections officers now and he is going to Philadelphia to train police there.

Sambo7.

Who is Sambo Steve? Is he legit? Did he serve in the Russian military?
