Ronda Rousey and Hector Lombard

Posted on

Famous people w-GTJDuring these past couple of months my students and I have had the opportunity to meet and train with great athletes in the MMA world. Ronda Rousey and Hector Lombard are very special in the sense that they have brought Judo, a sport that has never been very popular in the USA, into a whole new world, the world of cage fighting. It is because of this that Judo is gaining more in popularity, although we have a long way to go and many factors have to take place for this sport to be a household name, it is athletes like these that are giving Judo a big boost in familiarity among mixed martial artists and the general public. The Judo community is very lucky to have them and we are extremely lucky to be around them!
