CombatSombo Strike & Grapple
I have asked many people what they think of Combat Sambo, all of them have said they think it is a spectacular dynamic sport. My next question was why do you not compete? The answer was very simple they do not want the potential injury from the striking as many had to work the following day.
So I have modified the rules to my CombatSombo Strike & Grapple:
1) Knockout punches are not allowed
2) Full Face Head Gear and Body Armour to be worn
3) Strikes to Head Gear and Body Armour
Hopefully these rules will encourage more people to have a go at Strike & Grapple. I hope to run a small tournament sometime in the near future at my club if I get suffecient demann
