    Wil Everidge--This is not Sambo



    *EDIT: This post was originally in a YMAS section please realize that this has become a serious discussion.

    Okay, I seriously felt like I developed a brain tumor after watching this crap. I feel dumbasses like this need to be shot.

    1. At least look like a fucking athlete if you're going to perpetuate a "sport".

    2. WTF did this guy pick up on every cliche' BJJ gimick and suddenly started calling it SAMBO?

    3. We don't have a lot of regulatory groups when it comes to SAMBO but my fucking god there is absolutely no way I'm going to sit here and put up with this bullshit.

    I don't think that's the guy, it's more his student, but I could be wrong.

    *Edit: No that was him:

    I was wondering if you were going to move this to MABS. I did a quick check, he is registered with USA Wrestling Ohio as the Sombo Director for the state.

    This is from his bio which has been posted:

    USA Wrestling is the governing body for Sombo in the United States

    It's a bit more complicated than that.

    Three things:

    1. You know this is important if it pulls me from the shadows....

    2. Do you notice the korean patch on the sleeve?

    3. Last I checked, like judo, you have to be 13 to do joint locks on one another. BIG no no to have kids doing submissions in Judo or Sambo, unless there was a change.

    Smells to me.....

    Yeah the video is self evidently terrible, so this little nitpick might seem petty... but isn't the sport SAMBO ruleset grappling only, i.e. analogous to Judo or BJJ?

    Why is the kid wearing MMA gloves? Why in their "full mount" position, are they clearly attempting to posture up for strikes, as opposed to maintaining chest contact for superior control/pinning?

    And why the hell are they calling a scarf hold side control?

    A scarf hold is side control, it is just a specific side control.

    Exactly though, "side control" is an extremely general term for what is a pretty specific position.

    If I had something like a mune-gatame/whatever you call it in SAMBO, and you asked me to demonstrate a transition to side control, I'd be a pretty confused puppy.

    USA Wrestling is the NGB for Amateur Wrestling, and FILA is the supervising authority (WGB); For Judo the NGB is USA Judo under the IJF; For Sambo the NGB is the American Amateur Sport Sambo Federation, and the supervising authority is the Federation International Amateur de Sambo (FIAS).

    Not only does USA Wrestling have nothing to do with the governance of Sambo in this country, but it seems that Ohio is the only state that has the position of "Sombo Director" on the USA Wrestling staff.
