Beautiful stuff, man. Thanks for those.
Sweet vids TS. Unfortunately the new IJF rules will render most styles of Judo obsolete and the Japanese will be dominant until everyone else adapts to their style.
YouTube - mongolian judo
War Mongolian Judo!
Thanks esl21 for the video. I added it to the original post.
Those Mongolians dont mess around.
Do Americans not have a Judo style?
If anything it's strong newaza (Pedro, Rousey, AnnMaria, Rhadi), but their tachiwaza can be anything from wrestler like (Rhadi), to inbetween (Pedro) to classical Japanese (Swain). North Americans overall aren't really strong Judo players and don't have their own real style.
Ya it's called being thrown straight on their back, Canadians share a similar style.
GREAT THREAD TS!!!!!
sorry for being noob, but what's the history behind the term "war"?
I'll second that. I trained briefly with a guy from Croatia. He apparently was a national junior champion back in his younger years. He completly dominated me but god was it fun.
buddy even when I started an account here and was a "sherdog noob" I understood what War _______ (insert fighter name) meant.
A couple thoughts:
1. That Mongolian Judo video was very aggressive and badass
2. Won Hee Lee from Korea has the best Tai-Otoshi in the world.
3. I'm surprised the European and Russian videos were separated.
If you say WAR Wanderlei Silva, it's kind of like, "Go Wanderlei Silva", or "Fuck yea, Wanderlei Silva son!"
If someone is on the WAR wagon it means they're rooting for that person/place/thing hardcore.
I love Judo - I wish I were better at it!
I was just gonna point that out. Russian Judo would be the same as say Georgian or Ukrainian.
American Judo is kind of like American food. It borrows from a lot of other styles and doesn't really have much of its own unique stuff. American Judo is historically pretty average.
There are guys like Rhadi Ferguson and Jimmy Pedro with really strong Newaza. Dave Camarillo was never an Olympian but he had a very aggressive style, with lots of flying attacks. Rhadi was pretty much a double leg and fireman's carry player. Jimmy Pedro was well known for mixing up that wrestling style with classical Japanese Judo. I always liked Jimmy's style. He had some really cool ways of doing some leg throws. He would also go in and do pick-up throws as good as anyone else. He's big into teaching grip fighting now, and he and Rhadi work together. Mike Swain is very well known. He had a pretty traditional style. I really like that guy Ryan Reser, who is a current American Judoka and was at the 2008 Olympics.
The French and the Dutch both have very strong, classical Judo that is quite apart from the Folk Wrestling influenced Judo of the eastern europeans.
German judoka also have a strong classical judo. It looks a lot more "japanese" than "russian".
