Bowing to your opponent is an important aspect of judo, as it is the traditional gesture of respect, and clearly these two little girls understand that even in their first competition.

This match took place last week at Club Jushirokan in Madrid, Spain, and the video below has gone viral because it is off-the-charts cute and not just because of the bowing. It doesn't hurt that one tyke is so enthusiastic about bowing, she knocks herself down at one point.
