1ος Αγώνας :
Link Αγώνα: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-2EtbNW6gQ Στο βίντεο που παρακολουθούμε, βλέπουμε να αγωνίζεται ο Ηλίας Ηλιάδης από την Ελλάδα με τον Nishiyama Daiki (Ντάικι) από την Ιαπωνία. Η κατηγορία του αγώνα στην οποία αγωνίζονται είναι μικρότερη των 90 κιλών. Οι αθλητές παίρνουν θέσεις και ο αγώνας ξεκινά. Στο 4:26 περίπου ο Ηλιάδης προσπάθησε να κάνει o-uchi gari στον Daiki αλλά δεν τα κατάφερε να τον ρίξει κάτω. Στο 3:58 αγώνα ο Daiki προσπάθησε να κάνει και αυτός o-uchi gari στον Ηλιάδη χωρίς όμως αποτέλεσμα. Στη συνέχεια στο 3:53 του αγώνα, κάνει de-ashi barai στον Ηλιάδη χωρίς κάποιο βαθμολογικό κέρδος αφού ο Ηλιάδης πέφτει κάτω με ωμοπλάτη. Στο 3:14 και στο 3:09 ο Ηλιάδης και στη συνέχεια ο Daiki προσπαθούν να ρίξουν ο ένας τον άλλο με o-uchi gari χωρίς να τα καταφέρνουν. Στο 2:32 o Ηλιάδης προσπαθεί να κάνει o-uchi gari στον Daiki χωρίς να τον ρίξει.
Αργότερα, προσπαθούν να πιαστούν μεταξύ τους, όπου στο 1:36 o Daiki προσπαθεί να κάνει o-uchi gari στον Ηλιάδη αλλά δεν καταφέρνει να τον ρίξει. Στο 1:33 λεπτό του αγώνα ο Ηλιάδης κάνει με μια γρήγορη κίνηση o-uchi gari, και μετά με ανάποδο o-soto gari στον Daiki τον ρίχνει με την πλάτη στο τατάμι. Με την κίνηση του αυτή κατάφερε να πάρει ippon – τον ψηλότερο βαθμό που μπορεί να πάρει κανείς σε αγώνα judo, κερδίζοντας παράλληλα και τον αγώνα, παίρνοντας χρυσό μετάλλιο στους παγκόσμιους αγώνες Judo στην Γαλλία. Βιογραφικό Ηλία Ηλιάδη:
Περιλαμβάνει τα πιο βασικά για μένα στοιχεία του βιογραφικού του, καθώς έχει πάρα πολλά στοιχεία αξιοσημείωτα και δεν μπορούν να αναφερθούν όλα.

Γεννήθηκε στη Γεωργία στις 10 Νοεμβρίου 1986. Ο Ηλίας Ηλιάδης είναι ολυμπιονίκης (2004), παγκόσμιος πρωταθλητής (2010) και δύο φορές πρωταθλητής Ευρώπης (2004, 2011) του τζούντο. Το προηγούμενο όνομα του νεότερου χρυσού Ολυμπιονίκη στην ιστορία του τζούντο είναι Τζαρτζίλ Ζβιανταουρί.
Αγωνίστηκε στα 81 κιλά και πέτυχε μεγάλη νίκη στους Ολυμπιακούς της Αθήνας, στον τελικό, με ιππόν επί του Ουκρανού Ρόμαν Γκόντιουκ. Τον ίδιο χρόνο (Μάιος 2004) είχε κατακτήσει το χρυσό μετάλλιο στο ευρωπαϊκό πρωτάθλημα στο Βουκουρέστι, στα 81 κιλά. Στους Μεσογειακούς Αγώνες της Αλμερίας του 2005 κατέκτησε (1 Ιουλίου 2005) το χρυσό μετάλλιο. Στις 9 Σεπτεμβρίου 2005, κατέκτησε το αργυρό μετάλλιο στην κατηγορία των -90κ.του παγκοσμίου πρωταθλήματος τζούντο, στο Κάιρο.
Στα τέλη Ιουνίου του 2008 στο διεθνές τουρνουά της Κωνσταντινούπολης, ο Ηλιάδης κατέκτησε το χρυσό μετάλλιο στη κατηγορία -90 κιλά.
Το Σεπτέμβριο του 2010 κατέκτησε το χρυσό μετάλλιο στη κατηγορία -90 κιλά στο Παγκόσμιο Πρωτάθλημα τζούντο που διεξήχθη στην Ιαπωνία, νικώντας με ιππόν στον τελικό τον Ντάικι Νισιγιάμα. Το Νοέμβριο αναδείχτηκε από την Ευρωπαϊκή Ομοσπονδία τζούντο καλύτερος τζουντόκα της χρονιάς στην Ευρώπη με απόλυτη πλειοψηφία.
Την 1η Αυγούστου 2012 στους Ολυμπιακούς αγώνες του Λονδίνου, κατέκτησε την τρίτη θέση στο τζούντο στην κατηγορία των 90 κιλών, νικώντας με "Yuko" στον τελικό, τον Βραζιλιάνο Τιάγκο Καμίλο.

2ος Αγώνας :
Link Αγώνα: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUhClqgbYpg Ο αγώνας αφορά ολυμπιακούς αγώνες 2012 που διεξήχθηκαν στο Λονδίνο. Στο βίντεο που παρακολουθούμε, βλέπουμε να αγωνίζεται η Giulia Quintavalle από την Ιταλία με την Marti Malloy από τις Ηνωμένες Πολιτείες της Αμερικής. Η κατηγορία του αγώνα στην οποία αγωνίζονται είναι μικρότερη των 57 κιλών. Οι αθλήτριες παίρνουν θέσεις και ο αγώνας ξεκινά. Στην αρχή οι αθλήτριες προσπαθούν να πιαστούν μεταξύ τους και στο 4:31 η Malloy προσπαθεί να ρίξει με o goshi την αντίπαλό της χωρίς να τα καταφέρνει. Το ίδιο γίνεται και στο 4:02 με την Malloy. Στο 3:30 η Giulia προσπαθεί να ρίξει με ο-uchi gari και ο-soto gari αλλά δεν ρίχνει την αντίπαλο στο τατάμι. Στο 3:23 η Malloy πάλι προσπαθεί να ρίξει με o goshi την Giulia χωρίς όμως αποτέλεσμα.
Στο 2:59 λεπτό του αγώνα η Malloy και πάλι προσπαθεί να πέσει ανάσκελα στο πάτωμα και να ρίξει προς τα πίσω με την πλάτη την Giulia. Σε αυτό το σημείο δίνεται shiddo( ποινή ) στην Giulia για μη αγωνιστικότητα στο παιχνίδι. Στο 2:53 οι αθλήτριες πιάνονται και πάλι και η Malloy προσπαθεί να ρίξει με ippon την Giulia. Στο 2:44 οι αθλήτριες πιάνονται και πάλι, όπου στο 2: 27 η Malloy με ένα εξαιρετικό ο-uchi gari καταφέρνει και ρίχνει με την πλάτη την Giulia, κερδίζοντας παράλληλα τον αγώνα με ippon.

Judo Strategy

...Judo Strategy is: • The mind set of not opposing strength to strength • Three Principles of competition: movement, balance, and leverage • A toolbox of tactics and techniques Use Judo Strategy if: • You’re a small player facing off against stronger competitors • You’re a large player moving into areas where powerful opponents may already be entrenched. • You have the capabilities(speed, agility, and creativity) to outmaneuver your opponents, no matter what the balance of strength may be. Use Judo Strategy when: • Dealing with the competition is one of your top strategic priorities • Competitors have the advantage of strength and size. • You’re unlikely to win by going head to head. Judo Principles • Movement o Don’t invite attack-“The Puppy Dog Ploy”  Keep a low profile and avoid giving away your game  Position alongside competitors instead of attacking head on.  Don’t moon the giant – unless you want to lose. o Define the competitive space  Change the paradigm by redefining standards for the market  Segment the market and make focus the key to success  Use first-mover advantage to build a market where you choose the rules o Follow Through Fast  Stay focused and sequence growth to avoid becoming overextended  Make maintaining internal alignment an early priority – before the challenges of growth emerge.  Use partnerships to leverage resources beyond your immediate control. • Balance o Grip your opponent  Design joint ventures and......

Judo Economics

...1) If each buyer has a willingness to pay $200 for each unit of either the incumbent or the entrants products then the buyer is indifferent among the two. The choice made by the buyer will be based on the consumer surplus. Both the firms have identical cost structures of $100 per unit of serving buyers. The entrant would have to reduce his price to increase the consumer surplus from his product. As a result, the incumbent would respond by cutting the price to match of the entrant. This would lead to a price war with prices in a downward spiral for both the firms. The strategy for the entrant should be to price the product the same as the incumbent to avoid getting into a damaging price war. The entrant can make $100 per unit of sales. 2) If the buyer has a willingness to pay $200 for one unit of the incumbent’s product and $160 for one unit of the entrant’s products it means the entrant is already at a disadvantage. The costs are $100 per unit for incumbent and $120 per unit for entrant. The incumbent can drop its price knowing that it has a better cost structure than the entrant. If the incumbent prices its product at $ 120 per unit, the entrant cannot compete with him as at that price it won’t be making any profits and would have to stop sales. The strategy for the entrant should be to not enter the market as it has no chance of winning the market share and make any profits. 3) If the buyer has willingness to pay $200 for either the incumbent or entrant’s......

Judo Economics Excercise

...Consider a game with one incumbent, one potential entrant, and 100 possible buyers. (The incumbent has sufficient capacity to serve all buyers.) The game unfolds in four stages: In the first stage, the potential entrant must decide whether or not to enter the market. If it enters, it incurs a small, irrecoverable entry cost. In stage two, the entrant decides simultaneously on two things: --the number of buyers to target, and --the price for its product (the price must be the same for all its buyers). In stage three, the incumbent responds to the entrant’s choices by deciding on a single price at which to offer its own product to all buyers. In the fourth and final stage, buyers make their purchase decisions, and each firm serves the buyers that decide to purchase from it. Each one of the 100 potential buyers is interested in purchasing one unit of product from either the incumbent or the entrant. However, only those buyers targeted by the entrant have the option of purchasing from it. To see how this works, think of the buyers as arrayed in a certain order and labeled as buyer 1, buyer 2, …, buyer 100. Suppose, as an example, that the entrant has targeted 10 buyers. Then, buyers 1 through 10 each get to decide whether to purchase from the incumbent or the entrant (or from neither). Buyers 11 through 100 each get to decide whether to purchase from the incumbent (or not at all). This second group of buyers does not have the option of purchasing from the......

Mixed Martial Arts

...Mixed Martial Arts (abbreviatedMMA) is a competition between two combatants that has evolved from deep-rootedhistories throughout different cultures and continents, and it continues toevolve through competition today. Sincethe beginning of humanity, unarmed combat has been a part of ourexistence. Just as MMA has existed (inone form or another) for thousands of years, so have the detractors of MixedMartial Arts. Often criticized for itsbarbarism and the risk involved in competition, MMA has faced opposition fromthe likes of Alexander the Great to United States Senator John McCain. Mixed Martial Arts has adapted due to thiscriticism, evolving into a sport whose legitimacy is acknowledged throughoutthe world.

Pankration may indeedbe ��among the oldest [martial art], having been well documented before thecoming of Christ�� (Arvanitis 1). Theancient Olympic games of Greecewere geared mostly towards running events. In 708 B.C., wrestling, or pale, was introduced. Pale consisted of two styles � kato pale andorthia pale. Kato pale consisted ofground wrestling, with the loser signaling his submission by raising the indexfinger of his right hand.

Palm Case Analysis

...Palm (Yoffie, 2001). Currently the CEO at Palm, Inc is Edward T. Colligan. For the period ending May 31, 2006, Palm had sales of $1.578 billion and a net income in excess of $336 million (Yahoo Finance, 2006). This is a significant increase over the previous two years. SWOT ANALYSIS: Strengths: The biggest strength that the case study focused on was strategy. Palm employed a judo strategy starting with the “puppy-dog ploy” (Yoffie, 2001, p. 56). This strategy allowed Palm to stay in business and stay undetected as a threat to their competition, especially Microsoft, for quite some time. Yoffie (2001) stated that strength of Palm was their “tightly integrated software and hardware design” (p. 59). Because they were so integrated, they were allowed to stay simple and move faster which was a definite strength. Weaknesses: Ironically, their strategy also seems to be their biggest weakness. As Yoffie (2001) said, “By investing over time in specific skills and strengths, you create opportunities that perceptive rivals can exploit. In other words, you risk becoming the target of another and possibly better judo...

...Language is very powerful, if it was not for language and communication we would not be living the life we live today. I realized the power of language when, I encountered a situation where I was not able to communicate to a group of people, in a way that they understood me. This situation occurred in Bulgaria, when I got lost on my big day, at Junior Judo World Championship. The ability to communicate is what made the world such an amazing place. If language and communication were never developed we would have never progressed to where we are today. The human race would be living like caveman for eternity. Language and communication is the root of success. It is what makes us so smart and gives us the ability to educate ourselves. Language and communication is the reason why the world has become so advanced, the reason we have so much medication for sickness and illnesses. It is also the reason why our world is so technologically advanced today. Language and communication is what makes the world go around. Lack of communication would cause tension among each. Without language or communication the world would be a complicated place. As a little kid I was always active, I would always pick fights with my classmates and kids in my age group where I felt comfortable in my home country Georgia.

Rhonda Rousey Biography Essay

...AnnMaria began teaching her the basic foundations of JuJitsu when she was eleven and she quickly developed a knack for the sport. She continued to train with her mother, and after dropping out of highschool (later returning to earn her G.E.D) she earned the title of the youngest American fighter to be the number one ranking in the women’s half-middleweight division at the age of sixteen. When Rousey turned seventeen she qualified to enter into the 2004 Olympic Games. Her attempt was abortive and she lost the medal to Driulis González (Cuba) and Urška Žolnir (Slovenia); the two bronze medalists of the 2004 Judo Summer Olympics. That same year however, she went on to collect gold in both the World Junior Championship and Pan American Judo Championship. She continued to defend her status as the gold medalist of the Pan American Judo Championship in 2006, while still going on to develop her career even further. In April of that year, she won a gold medal at the Birmingham World Cup, becoming the first female winner from the U.S. in ten years to succeed at taking the A-level gold medal, scoring...

A Person Who I Admire

...Judoka Tuvshinbayar Naidan If you are a judo fan, you sure know the name of Tuvshinbayar Naidan, because he is the most triumphant judoka Mongolia has ever seen.

Tuvshinbayar was victorious at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. He became the first Mongolian ever to win a gold medal at the Olympic Games. On 14th August 2008 he was inducted as a State Honoured Athlete of Mongolia as well as a Hero of Labor. At 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London he missed closely the gold medal due to an injury in the semi-final round. Despite his severe injury he continued to fight and got the silver medal.

He always manages to look well dressed, whether he is wearing casual closes, which he prefers, or a smart suit for important occasions.

Airborne Case

...------------------------------------------------- Airborne Express Case 1. How has Airborne survived, and recently prospered in its industry? Please address why you think it was difficult for bigger competitors such as FedEx to imitate Airborne’s strategy. Although Airborne does not get the publicity that FedEx and UPS get, they have managed to remain the third largest player in the express mail industry. One unique aspect that has helped Airborne maintain a leading position in the industry is their ownership of an airport, which serves as their major hub. This is a huge advantage because they have complete control over the timing of each shipment and what comes in and out of the airport. Airborne also purchases and modifies used aircrafts, which saves costs and allows them to run roughly 15% more full than their competitors. Onsite at the airport, Airborne leases out warehouse space to their business customers, which allows for quick delivery on last minute orders. This is a unique offering in which their competitors cannot match without purchasing an airport. Another important aspect of Airborne that helps maintain their position in the industry is their selective process for choosing customers. Ray Berry, vice president of Field Services Administration at Airborne, was quoted stating, “We pick our kind of customer deliberately.” (Rivkin, 11) The company would purposely pass over business with customers who didn’t fit their vision. Airborne mainly targeted “the......
