    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Mr. Hongo Does No Gi

    I trained a bit with Akinori Hongo at the training camp after this year's Canadian National Judo Championships. OK, I didn't actually do Judo with him but he gave some lessons during the camp. Mostly he looked a bit bored. I thought they should have let him have more time teaching, but hey, I am not the one running things.

    I found this footage of him competing in a no gi grappling match in Montreal.

    Osaekomi wins again, LOL !

    Didn't look like his opponent had much to offer.

    True, I don't know if that was a "beginners" division or what. On the other hand, Mr. Hongo would be a handful with or without a jacket on, so who knows ?
