Editorial Review The Sambo Encyclopedia: Comprehensive Throws, Holds, and Submission Techniques For All Grappling Styles.



What is the book about?




Sambo is considered one of the most effective, technically diverse, and dynamic modern fighting styles ever devised. Developed in the Soviet Union and based on Kodokan Judo and wrestling, sambo emphasizes utility over aesthetics. The end result is a fast paced and powerful style that excells in both throwing and groundfighting.

Sambo techniques were integrated into judo and those athletes won many medals in the 1964 Olympic Tokyo games.

Today, sambo techniques are being integrated into modern mixed martial arts with winning results.

This book presents a systematic approach to how the sport of sambo is taught and practiced.

Contents include

  • The Essentials of Sambo
  • Throwing Techniques
  • Leg, Ankle, and Hip Locks
  • Armlocks
  • Holds and Breakdowns
  • Over 1200 instructional photographs

“The skills presented in this book have all passed the tests of both time and competition. Everything presented has been used successfully in all levels of competitive sambo.” Steve Scott

Man's Search for Meaning

Man's Search for Meaning

Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we ...
