The Summer Regional Championship of the American SAMBO League was held on the first autumn weekend. Due to the uncertainty caused by the situation with COVID-19, the organizers postponed the event several times, and therefore used several warm September days for hot fights on the SAMBO mats of the state of Texas.
Dallas has previously hosted the Winter Championships of the American SAMBO League several times. According to the idea of the organizer and mastermind of the project, a former member of the national team Julian Sanchez, the League consists of two open tournaments: winter and summer. The current year was the debut for the summer championship in the League format.
According to the organizers’ estimates, about 80 fights took place at the tournament in Dallas during the day of September 4. Competitions were held in Sports and Combat SAMBO; men and women, veterans and children, Americans and representatives of other countries took part in them. And all this together became a great SAMBO holiday.
