Judo chop!

{l} had her first judo tournament today. She won her first match against another white belt (in the video {l} is in the white belt.) She won the second match, also against another white belt. There were no points in the first 3 minutes so it went to overtime. The video shows {l} throwing her opponent in overtime ({l} is in the blue belt). Tug was really proud of that throw. She lost her 3rd match to a girl who is a yellow belt (2 higher than white) who also happens to be in her dojo ({l} is the blue belt in that match too).

The video is the 3 matches combined, with the last 2 shortened.

Getting her silver medal.

With her friend who won gold in a lower weight class (they are the same age though).

fyi, there are no chops in judo

10 people are laughing with me:

Go Lauren! Makes her auntie so proud. Tell her that her matches are WAY more exciting than her grandpa's, dad's or auntie shel's were. ;) Thanks for posting the videos - almost as good as being there!

Good job Mamas. I cant see the video since I am at work, but I will see it later on. You sounded so excited on Saturday when I talked to you and you were explaining your match to me. Very proud of you Mamas. Keep it up and get that black belt.

Dang. Now I'm scared to come visit you.

What's the dealio? Is it like wrestling where you have to have them on their back for a certain amount of time?

Also, did that poor, little, blond girl ever get out of intensive care? Is she still in a coma? Will she live to get creamed by Lauren again some day?
