Sambo is an extensive and intelligent discipline*based on efficiency with a main thread that makes this martial art a fighting strategy that compares to chess in which there's no place for chance. That's why fighters such as Oleg Taktarov and Fedor Emilianenko had been able to win in UFC and Prides. Here is the first DVD with technical instruction for sport and for self-defense; arm locks throws strikes but also ground fighting with the specificity of this Russian art: leg locks. Instructor Herve Gheldman had been practicing karate with Patrick Tamburini full-contact with Dominique Valera and yoseikan budo with Maurice Penseyres and Hiroo Mochizuki when he discovered Sambo in 1985. Thanks to his friend Philippe Decoeur he could enter the realm of Russian Sambo by getting in the Sports Academy of Moscow where he got within 4 years a Certificate of Sambo Master and became an expert in this relatively unknown discipline. Herve Gueldman is also a police and military security expert often meeting with the Special Forces along with Igor Yakimov in their training center. Today*as a pupil of David Rudman Herve goes on training with commitment so that he spreads this magnificent discipline through training sessions across Europe.
