About SAMBO / CAMBO

An acronym for "SAMozashchita Bez Oruzhiya" or "Self-defense without weapons", SAMBO

(sometimes also seen as CAMBO) is a form of sport, self-defense, and combat established

in the former Soviet Union during the early twentieth century. Under the leadership of

SAMBO's forefathers V.S. Oshchepkov, V.A. Spiridinov, and A. A. Kharlampiev, indigenous

fighting styles from regions including Japan, China, Mongolia, India, Africa, Europe, North

America, Caucasus, and Russia were studied and blended into what is now known as

SAMBO. After generations of civilian and military refinement, SAMBO has evolved into an

extremely formidable fighting art with principles applicable to martial artists of any style.

Like all fighting systems, SAMBO continues to grow and evolve in both its sport and

combat variants.
