Friday's Question: Do you even uchikomi, bro?

Mike Swain is no longer a young man.
In brief: "four Olympics and five World Championships. He is most known for his historic win in 1987, becoming the first male judoka from the Western Hemisphere to win a World Championship since it’s inception in 1956. He also won silver at both the 1985 and 1989 World Championships, as well as a gold at the 1987 Pan American Games. He is a four time Olympian*, a five time World team member and was the 1996 US Olympic Judo coach for the Atlanta Games."


There it is.
You have the beginning of some great Judo.
No frills. No fluff. No flash. Solid, core, basic fundamentals repeated thousands of times with speed, intent, and efficiency. The true definition of Judo.
Go train.
