    sambo against bjj?

    read a magazine article that suggested the ankle locks and some other stuff found in sambo could effectively counter bjj technique. same article suggested this is why submission wrestling has become more popular with nhb fighting. the kinds of locks found in sambo or submission wrestling were not farmiliar to bjj students. sound feasable?

    Please start your general grappling question threads in Guantanamo Bay. This forum is for specific discussion of ground technique and strategies.

    To answer your question, leglocks are featured prominently in the curriculum of some BJJ schools, like mine for instance. However it is probably true that the average Sambo school trains them more heavily than the average BJJ school, especially for the lower ranks.

    As a White Belt at RGA London, we do not get taught Leg Locks and are not allowed to use them while in the Beginner's class.

    i find that the grappling game is evolving at such a fantastic rate, that next to no schools think that they can get away with ignoring techniques used by another grappling art.

    so you see a lot of sambo leg locks being taught in BJJ, you see a lot of greco-roman takedowns being taught in BJJ, you see BJJ stuff being picked up by sambo schools, and so on.

    if you get complacent with your grappling, you will see the error of your ways quite quickly in open competition.

    did that question really earn me a spot here in the bay? or was it asking on the wrong sub-forum? admitted to being grappling-challenged before. thought i might learn something.

    Sambo people wear a colored gi with shorts but don't call it gi, and prefer nifty little booties, whereas BJJ people go barefoot and wear a pimped out Judogi with as many patches stitched on, or no gi at all.

    I think that's the major differences between the two arts, more or less.
    Calm down, it's only ones and zeros.
