The British Sombo Federation is the recognised National Governing Body for the sport of Sombo (Russian terminology Sambo) in the United Kingdom. The primary activities of the Federation are to manage, promote, control, regulate and develop the sport of Sombo and associated disciplines

The sport is delivered through coaching and training sessions, gradings, competitions, seminars, meetings, forums and other channels. It is impossible to produce a single Health and Safety policy that can accommodate all of these different localised environments. Therefore, we need everyone to assist in the process.

As the control body we have set numerous minimum standards and guidelines that need to be adhered to when delivering the sport Sombo and its associated disciplines

 

Sombo is a dynamic sport with a fascinating spectrum of technical actions.

These techniques are practiced by thousands of Somboist all over the world, producing a wide range of personal styles.

The universal nature of Sombo allows every individual to adapt these fundamental techniques and skills to fit their personal needs, culture and match their physical abilities.

Sombo as an international sport is constantly evolving. However, its basic technical principles and fundamental must not be sacrificed in order to obtain short term competitive gains.

Ratio of Supervision** 1 supervisor per 20 students in a club environment and up to 30 students in a school environment.

For the purpose of this document Sombo performed in a school environment is defined as Sombo delivered as part of the schools curriculum or in a school approved breakfast, lunchtime or after school club held on the schools premises.

 

** The above is the Sombo supervision rations however clubs/coaches also need to remember that there are minimum general supervision ratios, which must also be followed. The NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit website has the latest guidelines

Mat Standards Mats must comply with EN12503-3: 2001. The it must be firm under foot and have adequate shock absorbing properties. We recommend 230 kg per cubic metre density for club and competition environments. Mat surfaces must not be torn or tattered and should have a strong base to ensure they do not slide during activities.

􀂃 Mat Spacing Standards depending on the type of activity and intensity for practice or competition simulation there should be adequate spacing to ensure there is a safe area in which to participate. Recommended ratio of mat area per pupil 1:2m2
