    Good, except for the inclusion of Fedor.

    An arm bar is an arm bar, but he's a sambo guy.

    Very cool video. I especially liked seeing a little Judo on there. Having played chess at a fairly high level (USCF 1900+), I can say that of all martial arts only BJJ (and perhaps boxing) are a good analogy for chess, in terms of having to anticipate your opponent's ideas and counter them while still giving thought to your own.
