    The event is double elimination.

    My opinion on single or double eliminations? I have strong feelings about both.

    I feel that single eliminations are a more true style of tournament in that it is simply those who win will continue to move forward to 1st - 4th place. Having said that, we run amateur events, which in my opinion, serve to offer athletes as much opportunity for mat experience as possible. Particularly in sambo. In that, double eliminations allow everyone to fight at least twice. Lastly, if people are going to pay us money to get on the mat, they should get at least two shots on the mat.

    Well, you can do both I believe. The adult division is the day before ours.
    I think it all depends on what you want...your goals. In all honesty, our event is much smaller in scope, but I think well run, challenging, and lots of fun. Lots of people do judo, not so many do sambo. I also like our rules better...a bit more freedom...gripping, submissions, etc. Also, you can't win by ippon or pin, so you may get more mat time. But, either would be good I am sure. As a new guy, you may get paired up with a more even match at the judo event. But, since ours is open you may get more of a challenge in skill level. In the end, both are good and if you can swing it, do both. If you have to pick one...of course I would say sambo :)

    I know of one school there that practices sambo. They only recently started cross training there and joined our association (just over a year ago). They are a TKD school BUT, have worked very hard in tandem with us and Sea Town sambo in Seattle to get a solid program going. They regularly have Aaron Fields from Seattle and his senior student running workouts with them in Portland. It is a good place to get your feet wet with sambo.
    You can get the contact info at www.ussambo.com

    I wish there was Sambo in Illinois =( =( =(

    But anyway, I have a question sambosteve.

    You said that you have quite a bit of Judoka compete at your Sambo tournaments. To compete in Sambo, do you have to practice Sambo exclusively or can you do BJJ, Wrestling, ect and compete in Sambo?

    P.S: Do you have a list of Sambo events that are occuring in the midwest this year?

    We have a few judoka, not a huge amount. But, to answer your question, a wrestler from any discipline can compete in our event. We do have many BJJ guys and wrestlers who compete as well.

    I don't know of any some in the midwest during the rest of the year. To my knowledge, there are only three more national events (as opposed to the FIAS and FILA worlds). Our event, the Ultimate Sambo Open in Florida New York, and MAYBE a new event at the USKBA world championships in wildwood NJ. That last one is not confirmed yet.

    Shoot me an e-mail if you want to get our newsletter, which will keep you up to date with events in all the organizations: skoepfer@nyc.rr.com

    I appreciate the event news, even the Canadian stuff that 'Kozak Sambo' posts. I'm sure you can understand as Sambo isn't as popular as other arts, that lack of information on Sambo does not make anyone here a 'retard.' ;)

    No worries. I am just still shocked when people don't know what it is. It happens often :)
