    No Holds Barred: Stephen Koepfer on Advancing Sambo and Legalizing MMA in New York 

    On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Stephen Koepfer, the president of the American Sambo Association and the head coach at New York Combat Sambo.

    In an interview conducted at the New York Combat Sambo school in midtown Manhattan on Thursday, we discussed the history and development of the different types of sambo, including sport sambo and combat sambo. Since sambo was originally developed in the former Soviet Union during the early twentieth century, Russia and Eastern Europe remain the current strongholds of sambo. We discussed what techniques and types of submissions are allowed in both sport and combat sambo, why sambo is very useful for mixed martial arts, the history of the major international organizations which have governed sambo, and more.

    We also discussed the newly-formed Coalition to Legalize Mixed Martial Arts in New York. This is a non-partisan volunteer group of organizations, gyms, business owners, and individuals who support the legalization and regulation of mixed martial arts in the state of New York.

    The Coalition to Legalize Mixed Martial Arts in New York will be holding a rally on Tuesday, February 8, 2011, at 12 noon, in support of legalized and regulated mixed martial arts in New York State, at 250 Broadway, Manhattan, New York, 10007 (across the street from City Hall). We discussed this rally and why all those in the combat sports should support it.
