DSTRYR/SG: RELENTLESSLY ATTACKING YOU WITH SAMBO DEMONSTRATIONS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE.
There really is something about Sambo demonstrations that just smack of the odd. Mullets are donned, heavy metal is played, and in the case of the video below, sleeveless jackets are worn.
Let's face it, the spandex short shorts are already pushing the envelope. We give the Sambo guys the benefit of the doubt because, you know, they're Euro and all. But, doing a Sambo demo in a sleeveless jacket? That's just brilliantly strange (or strangely brilliant). At the end of the day, if you can hip throw your opponent with the speed and power these dudes have, you can wear whatever the heck you want.
Joking aside, the athletes in the demo are wearing Georgian folk style/traditional jackets while demonstrating Chidaoba (Georgian style wrestling). It's actually totally badass and cool (and very ქართული ჭიდაობა). Way cooler than your $200 designer kimono. I expect at least one of you to sport this regalia at the next NAGA or Grapplers Quest event.
