    Sambo Lineage Project

    Hi all,

    I am embarking on a huge (and I suspect long and tedious) project. I am attempting to document a lineage tree for sport sambo/combat sambo in the US/Canada. I would like to go as far back as possible (at least to the 60's or 70's as there was sambo here in the US at least since then).

    What I need from everyone who is a , practitioner, sambo coach, school owner, instructor, organization founder, etc is the following:

    -Your full name (with birth date)
    -Who your teacher(s) are/were (with birth/death dates)
    -When you started training sport sambo/combat sambo
    -Who your teacher's teacher(s) were (if you know)
    -What particular sambo organizations you were/are affiliated with
    -Any notable achievements you have had in the sambo world or martial arts, name of your club/organization (if you own one or owned one)

    If you do not have all this info, please provide whatever you know. Please also forward this e-mail to anyone you know who may be interested in participating.

    Thanks in advance.

    It might be irrelevant but you might want to contact any Better Business Bureau, or Small Business Association, see if you can get records of schools opening and closing and possibly peace together records that way.
