The training is so intense in all the articles.  2/day and some do individual training in-between.  These players are "all in" in their committment to judo.  Travis says Judo is more physical than BJJ/MMA but compares it to Wrestling.  If any of could be a world judoka would we really do it?

What is amazing is how all the athletes change their lives in someway for judo.  Zantaraia not doing well at the Olympics is a stunner for me.  I would have to look at his matches to see what happened.

It's interesting as I am getting emails from the USJA.  It's tough thing all around for Judo.

Stoll and Krasniq are top level judoka.  The whole judo world is locked down. Neil Adams was a physical "freak" in addition to great judo skills.
