Sambo refers to a martial art and a combat sport conceived in the USSR during the 1930s. It mainly mixes Aikido, Judo, Boxing, Karate and Wrestling. Depending on the kind of sambo practice, the use of hand and foot percussion can be accepted in addition to its fight side, making this martial art a category close to free fighting.

The methods of sambo are very variable (nearly 5,000 catch) and fall into three main categories: joint controls, projections and fixed assets. It is not common for competitive six-minute contests to come to an end due to limited time. Frequently, one of the two opponents actually manages to seize the advantage over his competitor. The sambo is differentiated mainly with regard to its spectacular projections that are said to be torn off as well as its leg keys. The struggles take place on a suitable rug, under the watch of a judge, a referee as well as a head of carpet. Practitioners wear a narrow jacket called "Kurtka" red or blue which is closed by a belt of the same color. However, you have the opportunity to equip yourself with a black belt.
