    Putin had visited and had done some light randori with pretty much anybody, the Swedish dude didn't get who it was at first and threw Putin hard only to be thrown hard back whyen they got up.

    I think Putin is the baddest-ass president/ex-president alive.

    Has anyone miscellaneous info about political figure with regards to bad assness ?

    Pierre Trudeau was legit judo black belt back when he was prime minister of Canada (he trained at the Takahashi dojo ... Phil Takahashi got a bronze in the world championships). But I don't think he was at Putin's level. Teddy Roosevelt did judo and catch wrestling - even had a mat area put into the White House.

    that's older than the pope. :p

    Edit:
    now that I watch it, it's not the video I thought it was. That's pretty cool.

    Putin even wrote, or co-authored, a Judo book back in the day.

    That's cool that a leader of a major country, what's not cool is his political policies/civil liberties abuses. Hello there Chechnya.

    ^^ Wow, that's pretty wild. That Korean politician pulled off a sweet tomoe nage and then attempted what looked like tai otoshi or harai goshi.

    I kind of wonder how much of it was ghost written. Putin has very valid credentials as a very good judoka, but how does the leader of a major country like Russia find time to write a book?

    Cool info. Has anyone read the Putin book. I cannot bring myself to buy it since i am guessing he was involved with the book in name only.
