Does Judo Cause Terrorism?

Is Judo the art of choice for terrorists?

A lighthearted title, based on my heavy posts about bin Laden last week. This was tweeted by Black Belt Mag, and is a great find!

A top Taiwanese judo coach says he trained Osama bin Laden in Saudi Arabia in the 1980s and remembers his serious demeanor.

Take it easy on me in the comments! LOL.

That's Tweet of the Week, for sure! File that one in the "I wish I thought to say/write that" file.

If judo caused terrorism, Gene LeBell would rule the world. Just sayin' ;^)

Thanks for keeping it light. Can't be serious all the time - life would suck.

LOL! I had to use that title. Not sure why. One can only wish bin Laden had studied tap dancing. Oh well.

Hmmm. Osama bin Lebell. Nah! I can only wish that Gene LeBell had been his instructor. He'd have wrung him out good, as he says.

Thanks Craig.
