quickquestion do you know anyone in the Toronto area that is teaching sambo? (aside from the systema guys)
Off the top of my head, no. Check our links page at www.ussambo.com in the friends of the ASA section. All the canada links I know of are there.
Glad to say that team USA (New York Combat Sambo) went up and swept the medals against team Canada (Club Kozak). Seriously though, the Canadians were tough mofos and the fights could have went either way on any day.
The turn out was smaller than we would have liked, but there was a Canadian and US team so we had a great team challenge! Had an awsome time and boy those Canadians can put down the beers!!
Gotta get more teams up there next year!!!
Here is a highlight video:
Lies make kittens sad. Admit it; you pwned the Canucks like a syrup shortage.

I wouldn't say pawned :) Good fights though!
Hey Kozak! See you in a few weeks :)
This tournament was a while ago but still, they look like fun rules to compete under. Similar to mma without the gnp (at least to the head) are there many tournaments like this in Canada? When Im healthy I'd be interested in competing in something like this though I've only got alittle bjj (a year-ish with no real leglock knowledge) which might result in me getting thrown and leg locked all over the damn place. With the headgear and shinguards I think it could be fun as long as I tap early
