Thanks for the link to our forum...now I don't have to look cheesy promoting my forum on another forum...LOL
Strong links between Mongolian Wrestling and Sambo. The mongolians are one of the strongest international teams in sambo each year. Mongolian Wrestling's takedowns are ideal for sambo. If you ever get a chance to speak with Aaron Fields about his time in Mongolia, you should.
Here is our podcast interview with him where he discusses sambo and wrestling training in Mongolia:
Here is an awsome highlight reel of the annual Nadaam festival in Mongolia. You can see how much they use pick ups, leg wraps, and over the back grip. Very much like sambo.
I have a great leather scroll hanging in my school from Mongolia which shows some techniques, ranks, etc. It was a gift from a friend who went there.
BTW, I posted some leg lock instructionals in the DHS forum.
