    With all due respect to the sambo leglock game. Not every sambo school or every sambo player is very good with leglocks or even ok with it some school focus a lot more on throws and armlocks.
    also it will take some time modifying the sambo leglock game to the gi bjj game.

    To me the hidden gem of sambo is the standing/gripping game, wich crosses over realy well to bjj.
    Sambo is a GREAT art but differs a lot more from school to school than bjj.
    hope you find a great school.

    This is especially true in Britain, where a lot of sambo players are converts from judo. Obviously, like judo, you can win & score big points from throws, with no need to do any real ground work.
    A problem for BJJ players looking to sambo for leglocks is that a standard combination in sambo is a scissor take down to achilles tendon hold - but the scissor takedown (kani basami in judo) is prohibited in BJJ (& judo).
    That said, I clearly remember being caught by a rolling knee-bar in a sambo competition. I had seen it demonstrated before, but I was pretty sure that it was not possible against a resisting opponent! (shows what I know!)

    Absolutely! It seems to me that most BJJ people focus on the ground and don't worry too much about the standing game or the transition to the floor; this is a particular strength of sambo.
    There is a DVD about this (I haven't seen it):

    Also, check out Guerilla Jiu Jitsu by Dave Camarillo. Loads of good information on how to train judo throws and integrate them fully with BJJ (he is black belt under Ralph Gracie).

    There is also an excellent book from Ippon Books - Russian Judo
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Russian-Judo...7867969&sr=8-1
    which shows how the Russian have integrated sambo into their judo training.
