    Looking at getting into a martial art

    Yeah Im flirting with the idea of Judo. Its similar to sambo and I got a bunch of judo clubs around me. I like kyokushin but there is only one school which means only one schedule for that art. Im probably going to do a mix of weight lifting, judo, bjj. Competition focus in no gi, Judo and sambo.

    Looking at getting into a martial art

    Long story short I started my journey in striking awhile ago. Started grappling in pure sambo later and fell in love with sambo and grappling as well. Even more than striking. So I decided to start my martial arts journey again and chose grappling since its what Im passionate about most. Since...

    Looking at getting into a martial art

    There are three judo schools Im interested in. The one Im most interested in is Portland Judo because they offer both bjj and judo two programs for the price of $125. Also there is a great judo school for $60 a month and another judo school for $30 a month. There is also a great grappling...

    Looking at getting into a martial art

    The thing is what I truly want most and what I had the most fun training in out of anything I have ever trained in basically my first love was sambo. Its what I did last year for awhile before I moved a couple months ago and I dont have sambo anymore. I think I might as well go with judo and...

    Recently relocated and Im out of Sambo

    Its been confirmed by Portland Judo Club. They dont have a sambo program anymore. They charge $100 a month for pure judo. I would have joined for $100 a month for pure judo and sambo training. I dont want to pay $100 for just pure judo. This may have solved my answer to what journey I should...

    Just relocated looking to get into Japanese martial arts

    Yeah I definitely want Judo and Karate. I got access to a solid Kyokushin school M, W, F, Sat is when they train under a 7 dan Yoshi Ito which is very legit. Then I have access to a lot of Judo here for a good price. I used to do sambo and was going to join Portland Judo because they have solid...

    Recently relocated and Im out of Sambo

    The only one I know of is Portland Judo Club. They had a small sambo group that was part of Portland Judo. Im not sure if they still have it. I know Portland Judo is a terrific Judo Club though. I sent them a message about the sambo program to see if its still in existence. Im very interested...

    I need help with some descisions I'm forced to make

    Although since I'm 32 and I'm 1-0 in mma and 1-0 in boxing I'm thinking about saying screw it and just get my pro card and train for a solid 10 months and then make my pro debut. I wanna get paid for getting punched and you only live once. I could be a decent journey man.

    I need help with some descisions I'm forced to make

    When I fought in the past I was an undersized chubby but muscular football build. When I'm in peak shape like this this is me when I modeled I was 215lbs shredded. I don't want to cut weight but I feel im small for heavy. I feel light heavy should be my new home. Especially at 6ft3 I still hit...

    Hey guys Brandon the saxon here. So I have been living in Dallas almost two and half years now. While I have been here I was training at Mohler MMA for awhile then I found kyokushin dabbled in that. Finally I found sambo have been training in that since. Unfortunately I'm going to be moving to...

    Good way of getting in shape off the mats for grappling?

    Im not sure if I asked this question correctly but I realized grappling takes good cardio to persevere through multiple rounds of rolling after getting thrown and throwing your partner repeatedly for the past previous hour. My question is what can I do to get into better cardio shape for...

    A Reason Why Rank Might Be Important

    One thing I love about Sambo is that we have no ranks. We all wear either a red belt or a blue belt depending on which color set Kurtka, shoes and shorts youre wearing. In competition their are no skill level divisions only age divisions. You could show up to a competition as a beginner and...

    Still waiting on Sambo uniform to arrive from Russia

    The gear is arguably some of the best in the Sambo world. Im pretty sure that company supplies the Russian national team. I paid around $150 total. Absolute Force is the only sambo manufacturer in the U.S. and they charge around $177 for the same set after shipping costs but youll get your...

    Which style of karate would you consider most complete

    Absolutely. Sport fighting training definitely gives you an upper hand against someone on the street who isnt trained plain and simple. Defeating multiple attackers in my opinion relies on the individual person not a particular art. Being athletic having great cardio, constantly moving, simply...

    Which style of karate would you consider most complete

    I agree with you. Being successful versus multiple attackers truly relies on cardio and ability to do more work than your attackers. I dont think there is a special art or recipe for defeating multiple people. Just cardio and activeness while using the skills you know.
