Beach Sambo

SAMBO is a Soviet martial art and combat sport. The name "SAMBO" derives from the Russian acronym SAMbozashchita Bez Oruzhiya, which literally means "self-defence without weapons."

Sambo practitioners are known for takedowns that combine wrestling and judo manoeuvres, ground control skills, and leg locks.

Join members of the Canadian national sambo team in beach sambo wrestling demonstrations.
