Dear All,
I cannot remember a more boring Judo match.Both of these guys were in my opinion lacking any real judo skills. [snip]

If anyboy wants to see a Judo match, where one man is up against a man who outweighs him by stones/and is younger, take a look at Kenshiro Abbe vs Joe Robinson,
Cheers, Joe
Are you talking about this clip?

It seems that the judo establishment disagrees with your assertion that Muneta is "lacking any real judo skills."

Wiki on Muneta

...he has been elected as the "most excellent player" 4 years in a row at the All-Japan University Judo Championships (including Yamashita Yasuhiro, Masaki Yoshimi and Muneta Yasuyuki, there are only 5 athletes in the history of judo that have been elected "most excellent athlete" 4 years in a row).
