This second PHOTO OF THE DAY is more JT style. The first one TODAY of the old lady under the volcano was less than inspiring.

She looks good and focused on performance. Good that Japan wins gold for there martial art, assume this is Shotokan. What about the results from Kumite was that in the Games?

I understand that this forum maintains a proper level of decorum suitable for its esteemed reputation but despite this I have to say, 'dang she's cute!'

Great photo. You can easily picture this as the pause before she unleashes some legendary unbreakable combo attack that destroys her opponent.
