    Well, it was two judo whitebelts spazzing on each other. Gotta keep it in perspective there.

    I don't get how the dude in the original vid won, and also why he was screaming like he'd kicked Derek's ass. Anybody?
    I had to rewatch it myself the 1st time cause that arm bar came out of no where.

    I agree, nice armbar. You could see it coming, either that or a roll. White gave it away by sticking his arm in too deep in the first place. Noob mistake for sure.

    LOL, not something ones usually sees at Judo national championships. The freestyle ruleset is interesting, though. Kind of KOSEN in nature.

    That armbar is not in my bag of tricks but anyone that reaches that far over my back is likely to find themselves rolled into kesa pretty damn quick.

    Read the comments. There's a bunch of criticism, and the guy that won is claiming the loser is nidan or something. Apparently the white and black belts are what they wear to distinguish the competitors under that ruleset, and not an indication of rank.

    For sure. I've done a similar armbar but without the same finish. More of a Waki Gatame sort of armbar.

    Jeez, if that guy was a nidan...I've had bad days so I guess I shouldn't be too critical.

    You mean you didn't strut around the mats like a godking proclaiming your triumph to the world?











    How terribly unAmerican of you

    That's right, I look twice as spectacular on video.

    But their standup looked as bad as mine does, definitely not the crisp authoritative movements I expect out of higher level Judoka.
