The fireman’s carry is a takedown technique used in amateur wrestling/ Judo/ Sambo/ Brazilian and other grappling arts.
Reilly Bodycomb’s Sambo background gives him a unique perspective on classic positions. Check out this instructional on the fireman’s carry to see why every grappler—regardless of style—pays attention when Reilly teaches.
Rdojo founder and head instructor Reilly Bodycomb teaches a progressive approach to Combat Sambo that is heavily focused on dominating the standing phase of grappling with takedowns, throws, and dynamic submission entrances. This method is a natural evolution of the principles taught to him by Stephen Koepfer (Combat Sambo Master of Sport, President of the American Sambo Association), who developed his teachings from principles taught to him by Alexander Barakov (Sambo Master of Sport, former Soviet Navy Sambo instructor). With this foundation of Combat Sambo, along with the constant technical refinement from ongoing cross training in other forms of combat, including Kickboxing, Wrestling, Judo, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Reilly strives to continually evolve as a martial artist and as a teacher.
