Vladimir Putin Releases Instructional Judo DVD

It's called Let's learn judo with Vladimir:

This reminds me - Sometimes you find odd Russia posters on the Penn campus. They're made of paper and tied to trees with string. The posters feature banner headlines "Russia = x", where x is "Truth" or "Strength" or some other virtue. Then they have a photo and additional text and look very mimeographed. My favorite of these posters was one that read "Russia=Strength" over a a large picture of a shirtless Vladimir Putin.

I hope that during an administration featuring two ex conlaw professors, Obama and Biden, we'll have instructional videos on NLRB v. Jones & Laughlin Steel Corp., Wickard v. Filburn, and not so much US v. Morrison.
