The 2012 Summer Olympic Finals for Men’s +100kg Judo will be held today in London. Teddy Riner of France and Alexander Mikhaylin of Russia will duke it out for the gold.

For some reason, Americans rarely make it to the final Olympic Judo battle. Arguably our most successful Judo star, Jimmy Pedro, snagged him some bronze medals in the 1996 and 2000 Games.

This makes us believe that more American peeps must start making “Judo Champion” their life’s mission! And guess what? You can start doing this next month in Atlantic City.

Jimmy Pedro will be on hand at Caesars Entertainment First Annual Sweat AC Festival on September 21-23rd. On Saturday, September 22nd, Jimmy will host a Introduction To Judo For Beginners class from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. at Harrah’s Resort. This class will teach you the nifty tips and tricks for all choke throws and arm holds necessary to protect yourself from a crazy stalker start you off on the right foot in your new modern, martial arts career.

If you pretty much have those areas down pat, consider enrolling in Jimmy’s later class that afternoon, Judo For Intermediate/Advanced Martial Artists, at 2:00 p.m at Harrah’s. This session is so ready to whip you into top shape that you’ll come out knowing moves that no one has even heard of before (AKA – No-Gi Grappling and BJJ)!

Other tough dude events happening at Sweat AC include The Champ Is Here (UFC fighting with Frankie Edgar) and the Striver And Warrior Workout with Tony Horton from P90X and P90X2. Check out our earlier blog post to learn more about Sweat AC and click here for a complete schedule.
