Like always, we try to provide our readers with the news that they might have overlooked or missed, and for the most part Judo isn't at the top of most people's reading lists.
This past weekend the Judo Grand Slam took place in Tyumen, Russia. The Grand Slam typically marks the last big competition every year before the World Championships, which take place next month in Chelyabinsk, Russia. If you're not up to date about Chelyabinsk, it was made world famous last year after a meteor was caught on film, and everyone thought the end of the world had arrived.
Clear your schedule and check out the videos below where you will get both Day 1 and Day 2 of competition and a total of over 5 hours a throws, sweeps, and submissions from some of the best grapplers in the world.
