First and foremost, The Judo Crusader hopes that you had a great weekend because I did. My weekend started off with the De La Hoya / Mayweather fight. Now I must admit that I picked De La Hoya to win this fight and I don’t think that I was that off base because it was a split-decision. But win or lose, it was one heckuva fight.
The fight was a superb display of the sweet science of boxing and Floyd Mayweather, once again, showed us that there is absolutely NO SUBSTITUTE for speed. De La Hoya did a wonderful job preparing himself for the fight, but the winner reigned supreme.
Although Mayweather won the fight, his corner really gave him some terrible advice. I will cover this in-depth inside of this Month’s Inner Circle. If you are not yet a member of The Judo Crusader’s Inner Circle, you can get in right here for FREE (the only thing that you pay is the shipping for the FREE gifts that I’m giving you and the first 2 months of the Inner Circle is FREE. So you CAN actually test-drive it before you buy it).
On another note, this past weekend was the 2007 Abu Dhabi Submission Wrestling World Championships. Many of you know that The Judo Crusader competed in the 2005 Abu Dhabi Submission Wrestling World Championship, but the Judo Crusader is now flying around the world “spreading the love” and he now has to let the younger and more ferocious lions graze the mat. Well, this year’s Abu Dhabi was SPECTACULAR. There was upset, after upset after upset. But the most amazing person at Abu Dhabi this year was……
For those of you who don’t know who Marcelo Garcia is – he is the POUND FOR POUND best submission wrestler on the planet. He is lightening fast with cat-like quickness and he’s super humble. He won his division in 2005 and again this year. After winning, he decided to enter into the Absolute Division. This division mixes all of the weight classes together and Marcelo had a great showing, finishing 2nd.
That is absolutely amazing. He had 9 fights in one day. He won 8 of them by submission and lost the last one of the day against a 220 pounder by submission. He will easily go down as one of the greatest submission wrestlers in the history of the sport.
What’s Going On In Judo
The Judo Crusader is back on the mat working on his guard passes so that he can brush up on his game in order to pass down some techniques to a fellow Crusader, Taraje Williams-Murray. Taraje is in deep training and preparation for the Pan American Games and the 2007 World Championships. It is imperative that Taraje gets in some great shape and excellent conditioning for this 2007/2008 run. Pretty soon we’ll do an interview with Taraje and let him talk to you about his preparation.
