    Apparently, he's good enough to put out an instructional video:

    YouTube - Putin & Co to teach you judo

    Edit: According to what I've seen online, he's been practicing judo
    since he was 14. He once did a demo at the Kodokan and put on a pretty impressive show.

    In other words, he's pretty damn good.

    I searched, no results. I saw his book at Barnes and Noble and I was surprised.

    He actually did Sambo when he was little but switched to Judo.

    Ah yes, but did you use the Almighty Google for your search?

    He co-wrote that book with two Russian judo coaches, but I'm sure they contributed very little compared to Comrade Putin.

    What is needed here is a Professor Bros.-style song dedicated to Mr. Putin.

    Something like this, only Russian:

    YouTube - George Washington

    I was under the impression that the 2 terms are used almost inter changeably in Russia.

    Real song/video. No Judo, but does contain hot Russian girls.

    My boyfriend is in trouble once again:
    Got in a fight, got drunk on something nasty
    I've had enough and I chased him away
    And now I want a man like Putin

    One like Putin, full of strength
    One like Putin, who won't be a drunk
    One like Putin, who wouldn't hurt me
    One like Putin, who won't run away!

    I've seen him on the news last night
    He was telling us that the world has come to crossroads
    With one like him, it's easy to be home and out
    And now I want a man like Putin

    One like Putin, full of strength
    One like Putin, who won't be a drunk
    One like Putin, who wouldn't hurt me
    One like Putin, who won't run away!

    i thought putin had master of sport ranking in sambo as well, or at least some sort of high ranking in it.

    his book is awesome, and very, very russian in its approach.
