The next annual Japanese Sambo Championship for the Cup of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin will be held in the eastern Japanese prefecture of Chiba on September 25th.

The championship was originally scheduled for February 6, but was subsequently postponed indefinitely due to the pandemic.

The previous tournament was held in August last year. Due to the coronavirus situation, it was postponed several times, and the number of participants and the number of weight categories were significantly reduced.

Sambo was widespread in Japan from the late 1970s to the early 1990s, after the 1980 Olympics interest in this sport began to gradually decline, but another surge in popularity occurred before 2013, when the Universiade was held in Kazan. On July 20, 2021, SAMBO received full recognition from the International Olympic Committee.
