Alan: From my friends at the American Sambo Association (ASA).
The ASA and our partner group in Russia, the FKE, have joined forces to assist the Travel Channel with filming on location in St. Petersburg, Russia!
The Travel Channel crew and host Dhani Jones (described below) spent 10 days filming Combat Sambo training at the FKE training center as well as the Suvorov Military Academy. We don’t want to give away the scoop on the show, but rest assured this will be one of the best displays of Combat Sambo to come to American television. Featured in the episode (which is scheduled to air in either the last week of May or first week of June) is NFL linebacker Dhani Jones, FKE Head Coach Alexander Barakov, NYCS Head Coach Stephen Koepfer and many others.
There are plenty of surprises to come as Dhani travels throughout St. Petersburg and trains Combat Sambo! How does Dhani do? Is he able to hang with the big boys in Russia? Tune in to the Travel Channel to find out! Learn more about the show at www.travelchannel.com
