    Are you wanting to learn ANY kind of grappling, or specifically sambo?

    I'm not from Cinci (from Louisville originally) and I'm pretty positive that Jorge Gurgel still has a school there. I went to a tournament there years ago. I've got a buddy who is an amateur fighter that makes the drive up there every now and then to train with Jorge. But if you're looking specifically for sambo, I don't know dude.

    If you find anything out though let me know, I'm moving back home to Louisville in 2 1/2 months and wouldn't be opposed to taking the periodic trip to Cinci for some sambo practice.

    Jacob, I think you're probably S.O.L, besides Jorge's gym (and the affiliates) I don't know of any Sambo schools around here. This is basically a Jorge controlled territory, then Walker's, and our school, no sambo that I know of.
