Ippons from the 2012 European Judo Championships

Maybe it’s because I spent last night working some pretty weak O Soto Garis and Uchi Matas with my teammates or maybe it’s because I was just in the mood to see some dudes get thrown around in non-IBJJF approved kimonos. It doesn’t matter, because you benefit, grapplers. We all win.

Last week, while we were doing our day-to-day Jiu Jitsu thing (choking fools, b-boling, passing guards, generally terrorizing people with our sick submissions, etc.), a whole population of fans of World Class Judo were keeping eyes peeled on the European Judo Championships that went down in good ‘ol Челябинск (aka Chelyabinsk). That’s in Russia.

Anyway, a lot of great Judo was had. Sadly, I’m not even qualified enough to say that “I’m no expert” in Judo. I’m like the opposite. I know a few throws,but I’m a proud guard puller. I know the gis are giant and very quilty. I know Ronda Rousey came from Judo and she’s pretty damned cute. I could go on about how unqualified I am to talk about Judo, but I save us all the awkwardness. Instead, just watch a few Ippons. They speak the universal language of getting owned (or own3d, for the nerds).
