    From what I've seen of Sambo it's a great style, but we'd need more info. on your situation to be of much use. I'm assuming that you're about to start training at a Sambo club; your instructor will probably be able to answer (and demo) all these points ...

    I think there is or was a Combat Sambo club in Christchurch that might be worth looking into, or even a road trip.

    You should train in Judo, BJJ or wrestling. These things are not SAMBO, but they are a lot more like it than doing back-yard training with your friends.

    Have you actually trained Judo? Most clubs bow once at the beginning, bow once when they start fighting and bow once at the end. The Disneyland-Shinto crap you see in a lot of Shotokan is very rare. There is generally much less than in an aikijujitsu class...

    I'm surprised you find Judo so expensive, as well. It's usually extremely cheap.
