Ronda Rousey Throws World Judo Champion Rafaela Silva
Ronda took a seminar in Rocinha, the biggest slums in Brazil, while attending the UFC Fight Night Bigfoot x Arlovski 2.
In the seminar she showed some of her favorite Judo throws, having by Uke (the person who always get’s the worse part of the deal) the Judo World Champion, Rafaela Silva.
Fálvio Canto (Olympic Judo Medalist) was also there doing the translation and helping along. Ronda is a huge fan of Canto, who was at his time, was the best in world in Newaza (groundwork).
Style is rarely glimpsed in times like these, which at best encourage its humble relative, good taste. While style and taste have been known to intermingle in the past, the currently widening gap between them reminds us once more of their fundamental enmity. The world of the merely tasteful - trim edifice of bourgeois conformities, with narrow slots to be filled and straight lines to be toed - is bound to barricade itself, in the end, against style, which is individual, aristocratic, and reckless.
Japanese kabuto (samurai war helmet), 17th c, in the shape of a giant dragonfly. Craftsmen covered the underlying iron bowl with papier-mâché over a wooden framework to form the body of the insect, and covered it with lacquer. Wooden wings flare to the sides, while the insect’s eyes are rendered as large golden orbs. In Japan, the dragonfly symbolizes focused endeavor and vigilance because of its manner of moving up, down, and sideways while continuing to face forward. Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
