Stephen Koepfer Sambo Seminar | Cummings Combat


I so excited to work with and photograph the Stephen Koepfer. He is a lifelong martial artist, head coach of New York Combat Sambo and SAG-AFTRA stunt performer. He holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, Judo, a Master of Sport in Combat Sambo with competition experience in various combat sports. Stephen has coached his teams to numerous individual and team titles in various combat sports including Sambo, Combat Wrestling, JiuJitsu, Shuai Jiao, MMA and many others. In addition to coaching his team at New York Combat Sambo, which he founded in 2003, Stephen is an Association of Boxing Commissions approved MMA referee & judge and Class A International Referee for the International Combat Wrestling Federation. Since 2007 Stephen has trained in Russia and Ukraine on multiple occasions at such prestigious academies as Sambo 70 (Moscow, Russia), The FKE Training Center (St. Petersburg, Russia), Suvorov Military Academy (St. Petersburg, Russia), Borec (Moscow, Russia) and Spartak Olympic Training Center (Alushta, Ukraine). He was the co-founder, President and chief official of the American Sambo Association from 2003 - 2015 and is currently the U.S. National Coach and Secretary General of USA Combat Wrestling. Needless to say his credentials are outstanding and I'm so grateful I was able to photograph his seminar. My past experience in Taekwondo helped me a little (mostly to stay out of their way and not get kicked lol). Check out Carlos Cummings Combat Sambo Mixed Martial Arts if you want to be a bad ass like these guys. I so excited to work with and photograph the Stephen Koepfer.
