Sambo is a martial art and combat sport with over 100 years of history, which is practiced now in more than 100countries of the world. The name is an acronym that literally means “self-defense without weapons”. Sambo has strong roots in ancient ju-jitsu, but merges the most effective techniques of many other national combat systems, traditional wrestling styles and martial arts. There are two types of SAMBO – sport and combat. Copyrights for both belong to countries of the former Soviet Union , where it was linked to the military training in the early days, but over the decades SAMBO became a truly international sport. The Sport Sambo will make its first appearance as an Olympic sport in the 1st European Olympic Games in 2015, while Combat Sambo continues to provide the major source of skills for mixed martial arts adepts and is still to find its own way to go professional. Sport Sambo has found an enthusiastic place in civilian life teaching respect, honour and discipline, particularly with presenting its integral part the art ofsafe falling as one of its social responsibility programmes.
