WHAT IS RDOJO?
Reilly Bodycomb founded Rdojo as an online cross-training resource to help martial artists intelligently implement Soviet SAMBO Wrestling into their own grappling training. By incorporating the dynamic submission elements and powerful throwing method of SAMBO, a grappler already versed in Jiu-Jitsu can become a force to be reckoned with in multiple combat sports.
The Rdojo method is about knowing as much as you can about every element of grappling, and using that knowledge to narrow your attack vector to a razor sharp edge. The goal is to remove your blind spots, while simultaneously simplifying your game.
All combat sport rule sets are designed to test a specific aspect of hand-to-hand fighting. Thus competing successfully in more than one rule set is the best demonstration of a well rounded martial artist. We believe that being able to dominate the standing phase of grappling with takedowns or dynamic submissions is the most versatile approach, and can be used in the broadest group of rule sets and combative circumstances. The Rdojo method can be summed up as follows:
"Be standing, be on top, or be submitting them. If you are on bottom then find a submission fast, get on top, or get back to standing."
WHO IS ON THE RDOJO TEAM?
The Rdojo Fight Team and Associated Instructors are made up of athletes from multiple gyms located all over the world who have extensively cross-trained in this method. These martial artists have proven to be creative and effective in expert level competitions of SAMBO, Submission Grappling, Judo, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Mixed Martial Arts. Most of the athletes represent their home gyms or Jiu-Jitsu affiliations in addition to Rdojo when competing at tournaments. Representing Rdojo is about supporting the ideals of intersport cross-training, and IS NOT meant to replace any other organization.
Beyond offering instructional videos, Reilly Bodycomb hosts multi-day training camps and seminars to provide opportunities for all grapplers to further their cross-training and for members of team Rdojo to keep their skills sharp.
