    Yeah man a ton of the top USA greco guys also played football at a high level. I believe Dremiel Byers went to college on a football scholarship. Maybe Rulon Gardner too.

    Illegal moves in sambo and combat sambo



    So no twisting submissions, no striking head if head is touching ground. You can only strike if head is tilted. You cannot touch inside of jacket so cant hold the ends of sleeve cuff or bottom of jacket.

    Anyone ever trained at MPR Endurance MMA?

    I've always been super intrigued by sambo and even though it's a bit of a drive from me, I figure this'll probably be the only chance I really have to give it a try. Plus apparently its the USA national sambo training center.
