Seconded. If I saw these on TV, with commercials, I'd watch them and think, "what a cool show!"
Whoever put this together (you, I presume?) is pretty talented.

Thanks. Yeah, it was me. Amazing what one can do these days with simple computer programs. When I was a kid, I wanted to be a film maker. Even went to camp for it (dork). Went to college for art direction. Who knew I would abondon those goals ffor sambo. Everything comes together in the end. Honestly, I just like making them. Not looking for any big movie deals :)

Funny how a career in Martial Arts has kind of given those old talents new life.

BTW, the woman in part 2 (blonde hair) in the youth training segment is slated to be on the 2008 Olympic team for judo. She is also a european champ in sambo. Generally when you train with anyone who has a big "RUS" on the back of their jacket, you are in for a good work out...LOL

You're not lying either. Even in Germany in Nurnberg and Amberg Judo clubs you would have Russians come in regularly. If you got paired with one of them then you were in for a good time.

Thanks for he vids Steve.

I was in Russia for four months this past spring, and my take on that is that Russians are, in my (admittedly limited) experience, extremely intense about anything they take up. If one decides to become an accountant, they're damn well going to be good at it. If one decides to take up a combat sport... look out!
