In the early 20th century the former Soviet Union sought to create a unified hand-to-hand combat system for their military. This new art was called Combat Sambo (Боевое Самбо) which is an acronym in Russian meaning "Self Defense Without Weapons."
Since its inception, Sambo has evolved considerably. Including an internationally practiced wrestling-based sport, as well as a competitive version of the original combat art, Sambo is no longer relegated to just the military. Both of these sports are practiced with a jacket similar to a Judo-gi called a "Kurtka."
In this two-disc set, Reilly Bodycomb (Sambo Champion, Pro MMA Fighter, and Submission Grappler) will show an adaptation of Sambo principles and techniques for the modern submission grappling environment. The method he employs is a natural evolution of the Combat Sambo techniques taught to him by Stephen Koepfer (Combat Sambo Master of Sport, President of the American Sambo Association), who developed his teachings from principles taught to him by Alexander Barakov (Sambo Master of Sport, former Soviet Navy Sambo instructor).
In the first volume of this two part set, Reilly Bodycomb goes over his approach to implementing takedowns, throws, and dynamic submissions in a no-gi grappling environment. Included in this download are the following techniques:
- Foot Sweep and Ankle Pick Combinations to Leg Locks
- Multiple Flying Triangle Variations
- High Impact Throws Including Blast Doubles and Back Arches
- Rolling and Sliding Leg Locks
- Flying Scissor Takedowns
- Competition Footage
In the second volume of this two part set Reilly Bodycomb shows an intricate and concise details on applying and defending leg locks from the ground as well as armbar grip breaks and takedown counters. Subject matter includes:
- Various Single Leg Takedown Counters
- Toe Holds, Ankle Locks, Heel Hooks, and Kneebars
- Techniques to Master Leg Control
- Escapes for the Most Common Leg Locks
- Armbar Grip Breaks
This is a 2 DVD set that could have sold for triple the price it's so good.
If people don't buy this set it's better for me become I use these techniques in leglock seminars I teach. The part on the ankle pick to leg attacks is must have instruction alone for grapplers and MMA fighters. Can't believe Reilly is selling this so cheap. I'm watching it right now so I can teach it tomorrow in my leglock class.
Everytime I purchase one of Reilly's products my game evolves. I purchased his book: Sambo Wrestling, Combat Sambo: Dynamic Entry, and No Kurtka... they are all great! I cannot recommend his products enough.
Awesome videos and easy to follow, drill and apply.. Every dvd I have from Reilly Bodycomb is great and I have been able to apply it to my training and it has opened my mind to different concepts.. definitely would recommend to anybody looking to step their leglock and ground game up
One of best DVD series I have seen in a longtime. It is easy to follow and understand. Mr. Bodycomb explains and demos the stand up and ground work that is shown in the series in a manner that both the novice and expert can easily study and use right away. As a Law Enforcement/Military member for over 25 years I can attest that this series has applications that can be used on the street or battlefield.
A huge fan of Bodycomb's this new DVD does not disappoint. He breaks down every technique and I like how you can see the technique being used in tournament. If your a leg locker this DVD is a MUST! I have really have taken my game to the next level because of this DVD.
