there are alot of sambo guys named igor.
Or there are alot of russian guys named igor, and alot of russians do sambo...
that could be it lol.
What do you think of Igor Yakimov?
Yakimov is great. I did a training camp with him. It was a wonderful experience.
Have you ever heard of Dom O'Grady?
What if I have no experience whatsoever with Sambo but do have an interest in it?
that would be the point of going to camps :p

The camp is open to all levels of folks with sambo or no sambo experience. It won't hamper your training at all. We will work with you at whatever level you are at. You can wear a gi top if you don't have a kurkta.
I never heard of Dom O'Grady. Who is he?
My coach, he was world sambo champion, trained under igor yakimov.
