It was made by Kombat Arts in TO..They are responsible for the promotion. I'm just showing up.
Goju, this is a Combat sambo for MMA, so you don't need your GI.
You should still let us know...you are an ASA member and we want to promote your stuff.
Promotion is everything. Especially if sambo is to grow in north america.

Gladiator Academy. USA (Lousiana) - Doug Fournet could not compete due to an injury, but he did help us with officiating.
