Sambo is one of the top five martial arts to be represented in the realm of No Holds Barred Mixed Martial Arts competitions because of its real-world brutal simplicity and toughness exemplified by fearsome fighters.
One of a few foreigners to ever do so, Coach Sonnon earned the highest athletic distinction of the former Soviet Union - the coveted Distinguished Masters of Sport in SAMBO. A multiple time USA National Sambo Team Coach and Champion, International Combat Sambo Commission Chairman and American Sambo Vice-President. Scott Sonnon provides you with a rare opportunity to distance study in the actual methods and tactics used by masters of Russian Sambo.
There are three branches to Coach Sonnon’s RMAX Sambo: self-defense/combatives, sport (Sambo) specific, and mixed martial art. Coach Sonnon believes that since you will face other martial artists more than you will fight for your life or compete in sport wrestling, you must be able to first face that live resistance victoriously. The mechanics, sensitivity, rhythm and timing transfer into all other realms – critical attributes mandatory for becoming a successful, strong fighter.
Here is what some of the world's greatest grapplers in Sambo and Judo have said about Scott:
"Groundbreaking, universal ideas that can be immediately learnt and immediately applied." - Igor Yakimov , World Sambo, Judo and MMA Champion
"One of the best teachers I have ever trained with!" - Steve Maxwell , World BJJ and Sombo Champion
"Scott is an untapped resource as far as I am concerned. What I always have enjoyed about his matieral is that it is conceptually far reaching. It always furthers my understanding of fighting and I was able to use some of the things from this DVD the first night I viewed it." - Jason Keaton , Brazilian Jiujitsu Black Belt (Renato Tavares) King of the Cage and Extreme Combat Challenge Veteran Owner of Cyclone Mixed Martial Arts Gym: www.cyclonemma.com
RMAX Sambo is “4th Dimension” Grappling!

2nd Dimension Grappling: Arms to Legs Attacks – Free-Style
3rd Dimension Grappling: Legs to Arms Attacks – Judo-Jiujitsu
