    Is it just trips or hips?

    I'm not very well versed in the whole stand up to ground execution.

    For starters, sambo is practiced in a Gi (with shorts) so there’s a lot of judo techniques involved. Top of my head, it also has strikes which wrestling doesn’t.

    There’s a difference between combat and sports sambo but I’d have to check google. And I won’t.

    If sambo were easy.. it would be called wrestling.

    BTW.. Sambo is basically MMA with headgear and a gi.

    Do you even google bro?

    Sambo is similar to those "semi contact" mma tournament matches where everyone hits way too fuckin hard and thinks it's a pro mma fight.

    Sambo = wrestling + judo + (if combat) striking + awesomeness.

    Clearly Sambo works better.

    That's been proven over the past two Saturdays.

    Sambo is wrestling with a point and an aggression based ending
    Wrestling is a pin and restart ending.
