Vlad shows us how to synthesize Sambo for grappling and BJJ. It’s simple – but effective.
Here is an interesting surprise Sacrifice throw using the opponent’s belt ( legal in BJJ) to end up in a belt down ankle lock. This is a great transition.
The transition between tachi-waza (standing techniques) and ne-waza (ground techniques) are rarely taught in BJJ. This is a small window of opportunity that is often neglected in BJJ. Capitalising on this moment is a speciality high level Judokas and Sambist.
