    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    From the official FILA website... these are the styles listed that they sponsor:

    International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles

    Saturday, 07 January 2012


    • Freestyle
    • Greco-Roman
    • Female Wrestling
    • Beach Wrestling
    • Grappling
    • Pankration
    • Mixed Martial Arts
    • Traditional

      Note that there is no mention at all of Sambo (or Sombo)

      While FILA expressed their intention to take Sambo back in 2006, this initiative went nowhere.

    Luta Livre flees the fight,
    Behold Maeda's sacred tights;

    *in before MABS*
    For Sirc's sake I hope this gets sorted soon.
    For anyone else playing Bullshido Bingo I've marked "it has to be felt" "real martial artists show more respect." If you're using Coach Tripp's version of the card "IHTBF" will be marked as "I don't have to eat your sandwich to know what it tastes like."

    *edit* the videos of the FILA traditional styles are interesting, thanks Matt

    Don't forget "I welcome criticism, but not disrespect."
    This usually turns into "I can't stand anyone disagreeing with me."

    One of my guys showed up late today. After practice I forced him to sit down and watch that video. He'll never be late again.

    Since nobody else is mentioning this let me:
    How was our esteemed Coach Wil Everidge supposed to learn SAMBO, a Soviet Martial Art (remember it was 1988 when he started) from Coach Joe when the Cold War was still in effect. Whom did coach Joe learn his SAMBO?

    God help me I just watched all his videos.

    It's really scary that he is teaching kids throws with so many bad flaws, he is going to get someone hurt the way he is going.

    According to wikipedia (for all that is worth) the "birth" of SAMBO was in 1938, so I guess technically someone could claim to have learned the system, and traveled to the USA before the cold war. But that seems like a stretch.

    More correctly its "Don't piss on my leg and tell me its raining." Sure didn't take long.....
