The founders of Russian SAMBO sifted through all of the world’s martial arts, including Judo and Jiu Jitsu, to get the most combat-effective techniques available. Each technique was carefully dissected and considered for its merits in achieving SAMBO’s ultimate goal: to stop an armed or unarmed adversary in the least time possible.

In Mastering SAMBO for Mixed Martial Arts, author Scott Sonnon – one of a few foreigners to have earned the highest athletic distinction of the former Soviet Union, the covered Distinguished Masters of Sport in SAMBO - traces the development of the four types of SAMBO (self-defense, sport-wrestling, combat SAMBO and Spetsnaz) and then focuses on SAMBO’s mixed martial arts applications. Here he reveals the signature “saddle” techniques that have made him one of the most respected leg-lock coaches in the world. With 101 step-by-step moves – including entries, sweeps, passes, recounters and a host of submissions – this series is a must for all MMA competitors searching for an edge over the competition. 

SAMBO prides itself on fast-wrestling, with only 60 seconds of groundfighting permitted. In mixed martial arts, however, these locks only work 20 percent of the time and aren’t worth sacrificing quality position. As a result, Coach Sonnon modified traditional SAMBO to become a “lower-half” positional approach so that fighters could both strike and defend against strikes, maintain positional dominance and easily transition from one submission to the next in a chess-like fashion, as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has become known for in the “upper-half” game. Now you too can learn these winning strategies from one of the best SAMBO instructors in the world. 

Coach Sonnon’s ideas are groundbreaking and immediately applicable!” – Igor Yakimov, World Sambo Champion, World Masters Judo Champion. 

“Coach Sonnon’s training made me feel like I was unstoppable!” – Wayne Fisher, Superbrawl Champion
