    George Harris won the Pan American Championships in 1958, Ben 'Nighthorse' Campbell won the Pan American Championships in 1963, George Harris won his division in the same year, James 'Jim' Bregman won the Pan American Championships in 1965.

    Although Annmaria Burns/ de Mars/ Rousey maybe the first America female to have won a world championship, she is not the first American to have won an international title.

    American Judo is not particularly well renowned I think only Pedro and sometimes Swain have been mentioned by the high level Judoka I have had the priviledge of training under. I have only heard Pedro's name mentioned in regards to a turnover and Swain's in regard to an approach to O uchi gari.

    Pedro's turnover by a multiple national champion and Swain by a two times national champion and world champion producing coach.

    It is no coincidence that the two nations most renowned for artistry, 'classical' technique and technical perfection are also those that head the Olympic medal table: Japan and France,

    The stuff dismissed by the genius kyu grades and cross-Atlantic experts that crop on the internet is the same stuff that is taught at the bgeinner level is places like Japan and France and is the reason they are so good at Judo!

    Did anyone get that she is "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey? That's a testement to Gene LeBell's faith in her, as she's taken the nckname of GL's senior black belt (Rowdy Roddy Piper).

    I'm a Rousey ovary rider, but I'm really curious to know what's going to happen when she has a fight that lasts over a minute

    What happens is that she doesn't get the armbar.

    That too, but the fact that her opponents know its coming and they cant stop it. Watching her grappling videos, I'm sure she has other weapons in the clinch and on the ground. I really wonder what kind of power she has in her strikes if she cant take someone down.


    Its a good thing that I wasn't aware of her while she was in Wakefield. I dont know if I could've handled it.
