Another Form

Greco Roman Wrestling No its not

Most of this seems to be Greco as you cannot touch the legs but there is some Freestyle
Judo and Sombo Players watch out for techniques you know
Watch this and then watch some of the MMA Rubbish


Sorry, old man, but I really need to correct you on calling this wrestling: GRECO ROMAN. In Greco Roman wrestling you can no use the legs to block or lift your opponent. You can not use your hands below the waist. This was a Free Style match. I have officiated Greco since 1976 and believe me that was not Greco on the film. They lifted legs, they blocked and lifted with legs, and they held their own leg (also illegal) to get a pin. Good matches to watch and much better than MMA fights.

Dynamic Combat Sambo

I know a lot of Martial Artists are enjoying the latest craze of fighting on the floor with no or hardly any throws some despairingly call it rolling around the floor but just look at this Film Clip from Russia on Combat Sambo I defy anyone to say that they do not get excited by it. It has every thing high throws, punching, kicking submissions although I am not happy with head Butts, Kicks to the groin and punching to the head while on the floor you can not say it does not get your blood up. I have started a watered down version which I call MMA SportCombatSombo and because of the safety implications restricted to my own members and do not run Open Competitions as I believe something as p[powerful as this should be well regulated. Trying our first Tournament on July 4th at Sittingbourne only expecting a handful to enter. Leigh Till is our only entry this year in the World Combat Sambo Championships in Uzbekistan in November lets wish him the very best

Watch this for JUDO

Excellent Judo

Kani Basami

In this technique suggest you put your back leg in the crease of the Knee, I have seen this method work but I have seen escapes and injuries using this method. Putting your leg in the crease of the knee allows your opponent to bend his knee forward therefore driving his weight forward stopping the throw or at worst putting his knee out this is why it was banned from some Judoorganisations because of the high injury rate. I feel the more effective way is to bring your leg down from the knee to the calf when you throw the whole leg is kept straight the knee does not bend. Just an opinion Martin Clarke Sambo Grandmaster
Watch the throw done in contest see where his leg is
