SAMBO AND BJJ: TWO GREAT TASTES THAT TASTE GREAT TOGETHER.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, then you clearly don't eat enough chocolate and peanut butter or are 12.  Regardless, I'm ignoring you and am instead reveling my cleverness.  You lose.

Actually, we all win.  We get to see two masters of their respective crafts, BJJ and Combat Sambo, going head-to-head in a friendly, but competitive, roll. 

We've featured Phuket Top team coaches Silviu Vulc (Sambo) and Silvio Braga (BJJ) a few times here on DSTRYR/SG, thanks to our brothers at PTT.  They are at it again; this time we get to be a fly on the wall and witness a nice roll between the two coaches.  You really get a sense for the differences between the disciplines.  Very cool.  Let us know what you think.

  1. I not that much into sambo, but as far as i know, a bluebelt is not a 'master' of sambo?!

  2. No belt ranks in sambo, the colour is supposed to match the gi.

  4. AND if you wear the alternate color in Sambo (the red kurtka) you get to be a RED BELT, which means absolutely nothing to a Sambo player but always makes me feel a little weird wearing one as a jits guy...Just sayin. :P

  5. I think I'd rather have a name than just be anonymous 2 (and 3, 4...). So here I am.

  7. During the finish, was SV's wrist tangled in SB's gi? It looks like he was able to achieve control of the arm that way. Pretty sweet tactic I will have to keep that in mind when I'm on my back.

  8. Wrong, there's belts in Sambo, too. Dont mix the sport gear (the color of the belt matching the "gi") and the martial art.

  9. Well Rising, you'd better tell the international bodies governing the ranking system of Sambo to update their webpages to reflect this, or at least Wikipedia...
