The Judo guys out there will love this one. These guys are simply bad-ass. look at all the unique and innovative training tools they are using. Here's what Mike has to say about this event:

Nice clip. The training tools are too cool. They remind me of my Go-ju days. The grip strength community is getting into training with ropes in a way very similar to the clip. Google Battling Ropes.
