sambo has the same lineage as brazilian jiu-jitsu.
bought are based on judo. judo/bjj/sambo are very similar except sambo has some wrestling mixed in and doesn't emphasize the guard as much as bjj.
the difference is in the training.
bjj guys train more on their back. sambo uses its superior wrestling to stay on top.
