I Got to Meet an Olympic Judoka

No, not that one. I got the opportunity to train with and meet Olympic gold medal judoka Kayla Harrison! She is going for gold again at the Rio 2016 Olympics in August.

She showed us a few basic judo throws and talked about her experiences training at the elite level. I asked her if she trains any other martial arts aside from judo, and she grinned and said, "Not yet."

Look out, UFC women. If Kayla decides to head into the octagon once she retires after Rio, it's going to be incredible to watch.
