The word sambo is a Russian abbreviation that means “self-defence without weapons” (самозащита без оружия). This combat technique was developed by Vasilii Sergeevich Oshchepkov, one of the pioneers of the soviet judo in the ‘20s. Sambo has around five thousand defence holds from the various national wrestling styles – Georgian, Tadjik, Uzbek, Kazakh, Kirghiz, and Armenian – as well as from disciplines based in defence. It was officially recognized as a sport by the National Committee of Physical Culture and Sports on 6 November 1938. The first USSR championship took place in 1939.
Weight categories are split as follows:
Men 55kg, 60kg, 66kg, 74kg, 84kg, 96kg and 120kg
Women 48kg, 51kg, 55kg, 59kg, 63kg, 67kg and 72kg

But SAMBO exist in two different world federations: First one is Olympic FILA - Fédération Internationale des Luttes Associées (Federation of International Wrestling Associations) and the other is non-olympic FIAS - Federation International Amateur de Sambo (International Amateur Sambo Federation).

FILA - SAMBO (Guillaume ALBERTI - World Champion (-68Kg)

FIAS - World Sambo Championships Praque 2007

But all in all - AGFIS doesn't have any problems with duplication of sports. Like inline hockey sambo exists also in two parts. Do you think there is everything OK in sport Olympic and Non-Olympic structures on the highest level?
