Master Koulikov grew up in Moscow, Russia and began his training in 3rd grade at SAMBO 70, the most prestigious SAMBO school in the world. Under the guidance of Sergei Vorotyagin, a national and world champion, he won and placed in two All-Soviet competitions, as well as countless regional and promotional tournaments.
Upon immigrating to the United States in 1996 and being unable to find a SAMBO gym, Master Vlad joined a grappling club where he was exposed to Jiu Jitsu. He found that his SAMBO background enhanced his Jiu Jitsu performance, and he quickly fell in love with it.
Here in the United States, Master Vlad placed three times in the USA Open and represented team USA in Combat Sambo in the World Championship in 2008. He also placed and won multiple NAGA and Grapplers Quest tournaments and was awarded the most technical fighter in the very first Grapplers Quest competition winning all his matches by submissions.
