I love judo.

Great weekend. Super busy at work so I'll just bullet-point it:

* Fightville premiered at the SXSW Film Festival and I can't say enough good stuff about it. Excellent documentary on the lives of MMA fighters and promoters in small-town Louisiana. Props to Dustin Poirier who is now a UFC fighter, and to my buddy Josh Artigue who is their judo coach and appears in the movie beating people with sticks.

* Training not as hard, took the weekend "off" with just light sparring and drilling. Definitely back to pushing it this week though. When work permits, actually, since I have deadlines and was up till almost 2am last night working from home.

* Since Josh was in town, he reminded me by doing that I need to review the Roleta sweep. And he tweaked my judo series.

Thanks Jodi for spotting this first one and posting it on your blog, Combat Sports Review. Check this at about :40!

Love the footwork around 4:50. And I love the numerous replays and slo-mo for 5:50... great learning tools.. Look at the yoko tomoe nage at 8:40...

Awesome video. One thing I wish I had gotten into as a kid. Judo throws are absolutely beautiful.
