Vladimir Putin Offers To Join Russian Judo Team (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Though no longer president of Russia, Vladimir Putin still knows how to throw his weight around. He offered to join the national judo team after sparring with members of the squad on Saturday. "If you need direct help, you can include me in the team," the 57 years old prime minister told the trainer, according to Reuters.


This isn't the first time Putin has showed off his martial arts skills. Last year, he released an instructional DVD, "Let's Learn Judo With Vladimir Putin."
