Old 1980's ers Soviet Sambo films!
These are not short, so you will need some time to sit and watch them
This one deals with throws only
This one also deals mainly with throws
You can see a younger David Rudman in this one. This vid deals with throws and matwork.
Interesting seeing that. Actually seeing the mats and the shoes bring to life some of the things I've read about the divergent development of Judo and Sambo. For example, it's not really practical to learn good footsweeps and they do seem to necessitate a heavier, more static style. A guy who just joined my Judo dojo came up through the Ukranian Judo/Sambo system in the late 80s/early 90s and he's very much like that -- big, powerful over the back upper body techniques but limited and unsubtle ashi waza.
This is an awesome find THANKS STEVE! I have only made it through the first vid so far, but the stuff at the 12 min mark is my bread and butter stuff, and I really like some of the variations here.

**** not that left the other left.
Actually, the shoes and mats in sambo are quite slick when combined. It does not look it unless you get on the mat. The shoes have a leather bottom and slip very nicely for foot sweeps. Many of the big muscular type throws come from the various wrestling styles from the Soviet regions.
The coach on the mat is Chumakov, who is legendary. He wrote the famous "100 Lessons of Sambo".
Yes, I was really going to town click all the subsequent links!
Damn, the USSR was hardcore.
I like the fact that they felt the need to throw in a Benny Hill style montage.
Without all the breasts :(
