    the leg lock specialist

    If someone talks about leg locks,the word sambo will be mentioned.as sambo focuses more on leg locks than any martial art out there.but when someone ask whose the leg lock specialist in mma,either imanari or volk han defitnitely would be mentioned.

    when i watched imanari fights for the first time.i tot he's trained in sambo as he finishes fight wif crazy leg locks.but after reading he's profile in wiki,it is stated that imanari is a catch wrestler.

    so can anyone tell me any current sambo mma fighter that is a leg lock specialist like imanari?

    I learned my initial leg locks in catch. I expanded them in SAMBO. The only SAMBO leg lock specialist that I know of didn't fair well in his ufc debut and hasn't won his fights via leg locks.

    Vol Khan is a sambo guy...

    There are not many sambo guys in top level mma right now. Granted the ones who are have not used many leg locks.

    Having said that, I would keep in mind that in Japan, there is much more cross training than here in the US. It is hard to find "pure" fighters. For example, Gomi's gym (kiguchi dojo) also trains sambo along with everything else they do. Same with SK Absolute, which has many MMA fighters in Japan who use leg locks. The culture of fighting over there is very different. I think one of the reasons we see more crazy leg attacks is because risk attacks are much more accepted and anticipated...unlike here where mma has a much safer and conventional type of feel.

    Megumi Fuji and Satoko Shinashi are both sambo practitioners and do lots of leg locks. They are top level women's MMA fighters.
