    Team American Sambo GQ Debut

    AMERICAN SAMBO ASSOCIATION STORMS GRAPPLERS QUEST ON JUNE 28TH!

    America's Top Level Sambo Players will be entering the Men's Advanced Divisions and possibly Absolute Divisions on Saturday, June 28th in Morristown, New Jersey. This marks the first full AMERICAN SAMBO team to enter the World's Largest Grappling Tournament, Grapplers Quest.


    I was contacted by Brian Cimins today and asked if I would enter Team American Sambo in the advanced and/or absolute no-gi divisions on the 28th (not the 29th BJJ vs Sambo as originally planned) at the GQ US Nationals. In both mine and Brian's opinions, wins for TAS in the advanced and/or absolute divisions tournament would make much more of a statement for TAS than a single superfight team match; it would get guys more potential matches; etc. So we have agreed to do this.

    At this point the team (subject to change)

    149 - Reilly Bodycomb (TAS vet, New York Combat Sambo)
    159 - Ryan Ahearn (Ultimate Sambo)
    169 - Scott Yockel (Empire Academy)
    179 - Vlad Koulikov (Ultimate Sambo)
    199 - Oleg Savitsky (Red Bear Sambo Academy)
    219 - Doug Fournet (TAS vet, Gladiator Academy)
    220+ Brian Benjamin (Ultimate Sambo)
    220+ Carlos Cummings (Cummings Combat Sambo)

    Brian Cimmins does a great job setting things up in the pro divisions and the team end of things. Wish that, for Vegas at least, he'd not allow registration at the door.
