WITNESS A SUBMISSION IN INTERNATIONAL JUDO THAT'S EQUALLY AS BRUTAL AS IT IS RARE.

With all the whining folks do (including us here at DSTRYR/sg) about how the modern day rules for Judo competition limit sweet throws and submissions, you'd think we'd never get to witness fierce, blood curdling submissions in the major international tournaments.

But, no.  Gnarly submissions happen and people film that stuff for our education (and amusement).  Check out this recent sub from the 2011 Judo Grand Prix Dusseldorf.  This just makes me happy.  Like throwing stars and children's laughter and double rainbows and nunchucks and crossbows.

  1. That's an armbar not a "shoulder" submission

  2. Yeah, I'll give you that. Looked like an Americana-type submission at first. Arm isn't straight, but yeah - armbar.

  3. It looked like he was going for a kimura at first, but once the guy had him wrapped up he knew he would not be able to torque it back far enough in that position, so he switched to a straight armlock.
