    So, would anyone be interested in learning Judo from Vladimir Putin

    I know I would. What luck! He is releasing an instructional video. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/oct/07/russia1

    The Russian prime minister, Vladimir Putin, today released an instructional judo DVD to celebrate his 56th birthday.
    Let's Learn Judo with Vladimir Putin shows the former president, who is a black belt and former judo champion in his home city, St Petersburg, throwing opponents to the floor.
    It has been compiled in a collaboration between Putin and other judo fighters including the former world and Olympic champion Yasuhiro Yamashita.
    Other segments of the production show the prime minister talking about the history and philosophy of the martial art.
    At a presentation to journalists and other guests, Putin said anyone watching the DVD "will be learning not from your humble servant but from real geniuses" of judo, describing the title of the video as an "advertising trick".
    As part of his advice to viewers, Putin says: "In a bout, compromises and concessions are permissible, but only in one case - if it is for victory."
    Putin, a former KGB agent and enthusiastic skier, hasn't been shy about showing off his sporting prowess.
    Last year, he was pictured bare-chested and wearing combat trousers as he entertained international dignitaries on a fishing holiday in Siberia.
    Other exploits shown on Russian state-controlled media have included tiger tracking and truck racing.
    Putin said the health of a country was expressed through sport. "The level of developing of sports undoubtedly defines the level of development of the country itself," he added.
    "Without sports, it's impossible to speak of a healthy way of life, about the health of the nation as such."
    Last month, Putin told the French Le Figaro newspaper that the French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, twas keen to take judo lessons, saying: "We have decided to do some training together."

        Putin's osotogari is sick.

        You start from kenka-yotsu, step in with the left foot, lift with both arms, silence the media and kill their family under the guise of night, then reap the leg.

            Fuck anyone who puts the good of their own country over the good of yours.

            The man's an unmatched statesman who's done amazing things for the nation he loves.

            Can't fault him too much. Would love to learn judo, and badassery in general, from him.

                      If we ever had some sort of mma tournament between world leaders as a way to settle their disputes, I would put my money on Putin winning that shit! Oh and yeah, he's a dangerous mofo when it comes to power!

                          An interview with Kim Jong Il's former bodyguard says he's really good at shooting:
