1 Gold, 2 Silver and 2 Bronze Medals Solidify Dominion MMA's Sambo Program
Thirteen Sambo schools from around the nation competed in this event to demonstrate their technical ability in the Russian Mixed Martial Art known as Sambo.

According to head Sambo coach, Reynaldo Rodriguez, a Gokor Chivikyan Hayastan Grappler, we attended this event to see how well our Sambo program would match up against more established Sambo programs from around country. I had complete confidence in my Sambo students.
Dominion MMA placed 5 athletes in 5 divisions.
Silver 82kg Jeremy Outlette
Bronze 90kg Charles De Leon
Bronze 68kg William Lloyd
Gold 79kg Chris Eby
Silver 100k g Bryant Ellis
Coach Rodriguez said he was extremely pleased with the results. When you can take Sambo students that have never competed in a Sambo tournament and earn 1 Gold, 2 Silver and 2 Bronze medals against more well established Sambo programs then we know that we have a great program.
I never doubted our Sambo program to begin with but when you have Sambo coaches from other schools travelling back and forth to Russian to learn new Sambo techniques or to improve their Sambo I did not know what to expect but in the end I believe people will now know that Dominion MMA has a strong Sambo presence in San Antonio, Texas and South Texas.
Dominion Mixed Martial Arts Academy teaches Marcello C. Monteiro Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Judo, Russian Sport and Combat Sambo, Boxing, and Gokor Chivichyan Hayastan Grappling.
