SCISSORING THE BODYCOMB.



Many of you noobs may think Sambo is just nogi grappling or BJJ. Yes, you may be right that it's a no gi grappling system and it does share a majority of positions and basics with the other more common grappling arts. What many don't realize is how dynamic and vast the Sambo game can be. Originally it drew from eastern grappling arts and later it was heavily integrated with a variety of folk wrestling and slavic grappling styles.

I've said it many times before but I strongly believe that modern submission grappling styles with a solid wrestling base are the future of MMA and submission grappling. If you have a free minute take a look at Luta Livre, Shooto, or Sambo fighters in modern MMA. Actually just tune into Bellator and you'll find practitioners of all three styles, winning more often than not. Now you could maybe make the correlation that Catch (CACC) has influenced all of these grappling styles and you would be correct.

But enough rambling from me it's time to watch Reilly Bodycomb.  Reilly has been a high level competitor for many, many years and he has produced several Sambo DVD instructionals as well. Mr. Bodycomb is a product of the NYC Sambo scene and Master Steve Koepfner. Currently he is based out of NoLa BJJ in New Orleans, LA where he teaching nogi grappling. Take a look at todays video and learn pretty much everything you wanted to know about about the scissor takedown.

  1. Make sure you take care of your hands. Also, when buying a pair of high quality MMA gloves, you should consider the protection that it will give to your hands. You can look at some reviews of MMA gloves with high quality padding on the internet. But manufacturers will claim truthfully that their gloves can give the fighters good hand and knuckle protection from their gloves.

  2. Isn't this the same as kani basami? If so, this move is illegal in both judo and bjj.
