    Dean Lister I beleives trains/teaches out of Cityboxing, he has a sambo background along with his reknowed skills in BJJ.

    But if that doesnt pan out, try nolimitsmma.com in Irvine and hayastan also in Orange County.

    well the best bet for sambo is to train with the wrestling coach from city college he has about 20 years sambo experience.

    PM bloodfeud he is my training partener and he knows alot more about the sambo instrucrtors. he's also friends with the city college coach

    I might have the J.C. wrong or the guy simply runs a club out of there either way pm bloodfeud and he'll inform you
    or sign up at UNdisputed and we will take care of all your mma needs

    Tony is a EXCELLENT leglock instrucor but I don't think he teaches much Sambo. His emphais is more on MMA so he dosen't spend time with the Sambo gi training people for Sambo competition at all

    why do people think that you can't even do twisting joint locks in sambo comp

    yeah if you could post where he has been that would be nice. There have actaully been a couple conversations about what happen to Galindo. He kind of disappered and I normally saw him every couple months for years. Nice guywhen I competed down in Mex and saw him he always had good tips

    you know mcdojos that make karate all ghey?

    a lot of "sambo" comps are just judo comps with more subs allowed, that's why

    Greg Dixon was the wrestling coach at City College when they had a wrestling program, and he was a World silver medalist in Sambo. He's probably the guy you are refering to. I haven't seen him in years but he use to lift at World Gym in Pacific Beach.
