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

MEDIA REVIEWS
"There are only a handful of people who have been continually present and influential in the sport of sambo since it first arrived on our shores. Among them is Steve Scott. He has continually trained top athletes, published texts and hosted tournaments. The Sambo Encyclopedia, his new compendium is a much awaited text. Few and far between are comprehensive English language books on the diversity of techniques that comprise sambo. This book will surely become required reading for new and old members of the sambo community."--Steve Koepfer, President, American Sambo Association
"Russian sambo is a unique sport and martial art known for its combat effectiveness and adaptability. The Sambo Encyclopedia is the first English language book that addresses the whole of sambo. I applaud Steve Scott's efforts in advancing the rich tradition of Russian Sambo."--Igor Kurinnoy, 3-Time World Sambo Champion
"Steve Scott has my personal sincere appreciation on such a great book. Steve has left a real legacy."--Leonid Polyakov, Executive Secretary USA Sambo
"I've known Steve Scott for several decades and he has always been a fan of sambo and judo. He is a man who is talented in many skills and a great teacher and writer. I am proud to say that I support any effort that Steve puts forth to promote sambo. This book, The Sambo Encyclopedia, comes from a very qualified and competent individual and I throw my full support behind it."--Joe Neely, U.S. World Team Coach
"I have known Steve Scott for over 30 years. He is one of the pioneers of sambo in the United States. Steve is a very innovative coach who has produced World and National champions in sambo and judo. Vital Sambo is the first English language publication that covers all aspects of sambo-throws, takedowns, immobilizations and submissions. This book is truly a comprehensive guide to the Russian martial art. I've been fortunate to have had the opportunity to train in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus but most people don't have this option and that is why this book is important. The Sambo Encyclopedia gives you an insight to sambo's training methods."--Gregg Humphreys, Secretary General, American Sambo Association
"The Sambo Encyclopedia is a great book and Steve Scott is a great coach! If you want to know what sambo is all about, this is the book to read."--Jan Trussell, World, Pan American and U.S. National Sambo Champion
