    SAMBO vs BJJ

    So I was doing my normal surfing for MMA news and a forum title crossed my path on Sherdog. They're talking about BJJ vs. SAMBO. Which is better etc. As a SAMBO player let me state that in these situations BJJ is the better art:

    1. Wearing and manipulating the GI
    2. Smaller vs Bigger opponent
    3. Bottom position.
    4. Reversals

    That would be it.

    These days there is soooo much overlap that it doesn't matter what you choose as long as it isn't a stuck up instructor that refuses to roll and learn from everybody.

    Should you take SAMBO or BJJ first. I think everybod should start off with....Judo, because Judo will actually work on your base then flip a coin and cross train as much as you want.

    There, anybody want to argue? :new_uklia

    Now that I've gotten over the no-gi difficulties, I have to agree wholeheartedly that having a foundation in judo is a great way to start.

    Now that I am beginning to understand no-gi grappling, my judo background is coming up all kinds of useful. Kuzushi, throws, and judo newaza translate pretty well to jujitsu. I can't vouch for Sambo, but it makes sense to me.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    Sounds about right.
    I agree that Judo gives you a broader base from which to cross train.
    The only thing I see Sambo having over BJJ and Judo is the leg locks and now, not as much as in the past.

    I agree. I took 1 year of sombo, and the leg locks was the thing that stood out most, and in my opinion the only advantage over judo or BJJ.
