USA Judo Olympic Trials

I thought this might be fun, I know some do/follow Judo here on the forum;

http://rivercitypc.blogspot.com/2008...udo.html#links

There are some highlights from a bunch of the matches, including some great clips of Ronda Rousey, Ryan Reser and Valery Gotay.

PS: It's work and family safe, presuming your job doesn't care that you look at Judo videos all day. Or your wife for that matter.

Awesome. We're trying to get Ronda to stop by sometime after the Games.

Re: USA Judo Olympic Trials

I know very little about Judo but those videos were great. I'll make sure to watch the Judo matches in Aug. It looks like its a one throw contest. How are the matches scored?

Re: USA Judo Olympic Trials

i hope you do see judo on TV.

but the chances of anyone covering it are very slim.

Judo is won by 'Ippon' which can achieved a variety of ways;

- a highly effective throw

- a submission

- a 25 second pin

In order for a throw to score 'Ippon' the opponent must land on his back with the thrower exhibiting speed, force and control. Unfortunately, a lot of throws that are not quite up to snuff end up receiving Ippon when they may not deserve it.
