and we will send you a nice signed poster from Insureon or Xyience. Two companies who kindly sent posters to give away.
There was also one person who donated $500 and said he did not want a prize mailed to him, he just wanted to know if Ronda would match his gift. Yes. She did. (Well, actually she gave me her credit card to do it because she was headed out to train somewhere and I was headed out to teach judo so I will do it this weekend.) I'll get his address and we'll send him a prize, too.
So far, the group has donated 3,400,000 grains of rice which is enough for 1,000 meals. The contest goes until Ronda weighs in on December 27.
You can go here to play, and you can learn more about the contest and Ronda's weight-cutting and free rice connection here.

Here’s a very nice ouchi gari (or as wrestler’s call it: inside trip) from Victoria Anthony (USA) against Anzhela Dorogan (AZE) in the 48 kg division in the Heydar Aliev FILA Golden Grand Prix in November 2013.
The interesting thing to notice here is that the trip is done on the overhook side. This is how I’ve seen it mostly done in high-level wrestling. That’s different from how it’s done in judo where it’s done on the “underhook” side. Of course, in judo, it’s usually a lapel grip and not an underhook but those are actually similar in terms of how the throw is performed.
Here’s one of many instructionals on this basic takedown from a wrestling perspective:
