Robin Hyslop who is Chairman British Sombo Federation, President Scottish Sombo Federation & Sambo Scotland has been running this competition for over 10 years and each year it get better. This year in numbers it even surpassed the poor turn out of the British Open in Kent, the Scottish Open attracts people from all different styles of grappling and makes the competition interesting in that the different styles have different approaches.

The most impressive fighter was Danny Roberts from Castle Douglas in Scotland no one was a match for him and as a top ranked Judo player Sambo would like to see a lot more of him, 2nd place in the u81k class went to 17 year old Jamie Marzetti  from the Warriors Grappling Academy in Kent who put up a good defence beating some older and more experienced fighters  to get to the final he has great future in front of him.

In the Junior class 13 year old Adam Dodds Woodside Grappling Bedford took on some older youngsters to win Gold in this group. Adam and Jamie have been selected to take part in a major Youth tournament in Lithuania in December with Adam’s dad Russell being Team Manager.

The Master’s event in Sports has become very popular and Sambo is no exception, John Imrie from Edinburgh is a very large Judo man but when he fights he is remarkable light on his feet and he won the Gold with ease this qualified him for the World Masters where I am sure he could win a medal.

Overall a very good and successful tournament it was a shame some of top Sambo players did not attend but that is their loss. Since the Scottish the BSF EC have decided to run next years British Open  at Dumfries Scotland on Sunday April 30th this coincides with the May Bank holiday this may attract more entries from the south, last year the British Open was for adults only, next year we will have all age groups. The only complaint was that not all players had the correct uniform many did not have the correct colour shorts and some did not wear Sambo Boots, this will not be allowed for the British Open although we do allow some lee way with the Juniors this will not be allowed with adults. Booking on the day was allowed and this did some lead to some delays, Robin tells me this will not be the case in the future advance bookings are the way forward. This was a very successful competition credit to Robin Hyslop  who is not just promoting Sombo/Sambo in Scotland but many other forms of Combat Disciplines.

The British Sombo Federation will be organising an BSF Instructors Course in Sittingbourne Kent in October but also in Scotland in December next year a full listed of recognised Coaches will be listed on our web site other event you may be interested in

Constitution Change

 

The BSF has moved with the times in the fact that they no longer control every individual practising Sombo/Sambo in GB, they are now a federation of Countries within the United Kingdom. With each country being totally autonomous at present we have English Sombo Federation, Scottish Sombo Federation and Northern Ireland Sombo Federation. Each of these federations accept National Associations and Clubs, each federation sends 3 representative to the BSF to represent their views and decide on matters concerning British Sombo i.e. selection of teams for World Events.
