Olympic Judo


We watched the Olympics Judo qualifying matches streaming online last night (photo, above, of Brit Craig Fallon, by the Telegraph). It was great. It was also pretty complicated for a sport that mostly involves making your opponent bleed and/or pass out. Its incredible that there is a legitimate sport where choking your opponent until he (or she) goes unconscious is a valid way to win.

I'll be interested in seeing how judo compares to Tae Kwon do, since I imagine we'll be watching that, too.
