    Vladimir Putin & His Black Belt

    So Vladimir Putin the Russian PM claims he has a black belt and is promoting a new DVD featuring non other than him knocking out a few people. The question is this, did he really earn a black belt or did he use his influence to claim black belt status?

    I believe it's rightfully his, with a history of winning stuff to back it up. Of course, that's hearsay. For all I know he mail-ordered his Gi and Belt.

    If you don't believe him, he may just arrange a visit for you with Valdimir and Pasha (Similar to Tony and Vito)...

    The man looks to be in pretty good shape. I suspect his belt is the real deal.

    He has his Black Belt in Judo and has for many years. He's the real deal.

    "Putin began studying judo at age 14 and has been studying ever since. During his competitive career, among his many victories Putin placed third place in the Russian Junior Nationals and was Leningrad Seniors Champion. He is now President of the same club where he began, St. Petersburg's Yawara Judo Club.

    Several years ago, following an official state visit to Tokyo, Japan, Putin was a guest at the famous Kodokan headquarters of judo. In attendance were many officials including Japanese Prime Minister Mori. Yukimitsu Kano, the grandson of Kodokan Judo's founder Jigoro Kano said, "President Putin started Judo when he was very young, and has continued practice until now. He had a wish to visit the Kodokan institute. We are very happy to have him and welcome him as a judo member."

    Yep. Putin is a Judo-player of a reasonably higher rank than me.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    He cut his teeth in the KGB. I'm sure he knows more than just a few judo throws. He is one scary and evil man!
    I haven’t heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.
