    Looking for a sambo school in Ottawa

    Hi, I was interested in training a martial art in addition to working out every week. I heard of sambo here and there and the style really interests me.

    So, are there any schools that teach Sambo in Ottawa, more specifically, Combat Sambo? I know Igor Yakimov had one but I called the place and it has been replace by another school that teaches Muai Thai and MMA but not sambo.

    So are there any sambo schools in the ottawa region as of today?

    Thanks.

    Try here http://www.rus-sambo.com/, that is Igor's site.

    What specifically is it that attracts you to Sambo and limits you from trying Judo or BJJ?

    I tried Igor's site but it hasnt been updated in a while.

    Honestly, ignorance. I was intrested in combat sambo because it's a mix of grappling and striking. Thats what I'm looking for. I don't know much about Judo other that it is strong on grappling. As for BJJ, all I know is that it stands for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

    So what should I go for? MMA? Judo? BJJ?
    I want a grappling art but I also want to be able to throw a couple of katas in.

    Not specifically, I just thought that was the most common way to learn an art. I'm new to this.

    Well I'm sure you know boxers learn to box without kata? If you don't no big deal, just an example. If you are looking to learn how to fight, forget kata. They should not be the main training tool. You should train like a boxer, but with whatever tools you have in your chosen martial art.

    A boxer learns how to jab, cross, hook, etc as individual moves. Then he learns to shadowbox with them, put together combos. He hits bags with his combos. Eventually he spar to be able to APPLY his punches.

    You should be doing the same in your martial art practice.

    There are several good grappling clubs in Ottawa. Try them all out and then pick the one you like the best. The one that makes you feel most comfortable.

    Make sure that you try a bunch out, dont just join the first one you try. Dont just pick the one that is easiest to get to. And dont pick one of the big chain schools.

    Make sure the instructors actually have coloured belts in Sambo, BJJ or Judo.

    Ask if their guys compete locally and out of town. If they dont compete, dont train there.

    If they are wishy washy in their answer about competition, dont train there.

    Really? Where'd you hear that?

    I heard he still has his school running but he's doing fight chorigraphy for some european films right now. I'll ask my instructor about this, being one of Igor's associate instructors he should be able to find out something.

    That said, he did teach a seminar at our place before taking off for Europe.

    Thats true... I forgot about boxers.

    Ok, so far I found one school, Igor's old. Where they teach Judo, Muai Thai and MMA. Do you guys know it?

    The problem is that I have to take the bus, I don't have a car, so my range is limited.

    But in any case, what are the school in Ottawa. Or better yet, how do I find them all?
