sambo
Sambo is a Russian martial art and combat sport. The word "SAMBO" is an acronym for SAMooborona Bez Oruzhiya, which literally translates as "self defense without weapons". Sambo is relatively modern since its development began in the early 1920s by the Soviet Red Army to improve their hand to hand combat abilities.
Famous practitioners of Sambo: Andrei Arlovski, Fedor Emelianenko, Oleg Taktarov, Rolls Gracie
