    Just a simple question. What did combat sambo fighters use before mma gloves came around? And how long has the SPORT of Combat Sambo been around for?

    Interesting question.

    Did MMA create 'MMA gloves'? Was it shooto or Pride when they first appeared. This requires more research.

    Edit: Interesting link even if it doesn't answer the question Russian Sambo Combat

    A worthy 1000th post I think.

    cool story bro:D, very strange language thou

    I liked this part
    One time per year there was a selection of the bests for studying in famous institute Kodokan-judo. Teacher under a deep secret told russian boy the unusual principle of this selection. Solemn day come. Many young claimant sat down on straw mats - tatami. Creator of judo, doctor Jigoro Kano began his speech. Moralizing speech was very long and, frankly say, very boring. With all respect to the orator it was hard to young men not to turn to look at something. But Oshchepkov knew, that teachers of Kodokan intent watch them from the back. Every movement of claimant is considered as inattention and even disrespect to judo grandmaster. Vasily didn't has a big experience in keeping japanese sitting position - without a chair, on the own heels. He had got pins and needles in his legs, he wanted to stretch them or simply move them a few, but he steel sat without a change. And when somebody came and said that he is admitted in Kodokan, Oshchepkov tried to stand up, but couldn't do it, he simply fell on the side.

    In Kodokan's archives there is still exists a record about admitting of Vasily Oshchepkov at October, 29, 1911. Vasily received full course of that time judo. Even now japanese specialists think that japanese judo training is beyond European's strength. At that time training system was cruel and completely pitiless. And it was not a long time period passed after Russia-Japan war, russian guy was willingly chosen as sparring - fellow. He was non-conditional opponent, he was real enemy. So unskillful Oshchepkov was ruthless flown on hard tatami, more experienced wrestlers strangled him, broke his arms, but he, as it is in judo, thanked them for the lesson by humble bow even when had broken rib. But soon he became hard opponent even for experienced wrestlers.

    I think Combat Sambo is a relatively recent invention. According to wikipedia, the first FIAS World Combat Sambo Championships were held in 2001. However, I believe there were combat Sambo events in Russia as far back as the 80s at least. IIRC, Kempo had a type of mma-like glove, Bruce Lee actually used them in one of this movies in the early 70s.

    Combat Sambo was not invented as a sport and the first championships were held in the military and police forces (the only ones allowed to practice it).
    There were no protectors at all.
    When it became available to the general public, things had to be put in standards though...
