    interesting. from reading the rules, freestyle sambo sounds extremely similar to bjj, much moreso than what i usually hear about sambo.

    (how many sambo varieties are there, now?)

    hmm, can i assume that chokes are allowed then in freestyle sambo? (I never understood that, they allow leg locks but no chokes O.o?? )

    Freestyle rules are like the middle ground between traditional sport and combat sambo events. Yes, chokes are legal as well as some other subs not allowed in sport sambo. The limited ground time and throwing aspect are basically the same except there is no total victory by throw (ippon). Point scoring is very different than BJJ. Basically, you score points for throw quality and you can only score once on the ground for top dominance and once for guard dominance. Essentially, you ground time is devoted to subs, not positions for points or hold downs.

    There is a strong movement to bring chokes back to sport sambo as well. In fact, they were there prior to WWII. The removal of chokes was more likely to distinguish from Judo and the Japanese when Japan was an enemy of the Soviets. In any event, most sambo coaches I know practice chokes.
