CUTESVILLE — As far as I’m concerned, children aren’t automatically adorable and charming just because they’re innocent children. They are generally sticky and loud, plus they smell a little weird.

But there are some magical moments where kids really do say and do the darndest things, and sometimes we’re lucky these moments are caught on video.

Now bow to your opponent and prepare yourself, because you’re about to see arguably the most adorable judo match ever to be “fought.”

I’m not sure what motivates a parent to put a toddler with limited motor skills into a judo tournament, but that’s where these two tots find themselves.

At first they seem a bit unsure, simply going through the motions of what they’ve been taught. But it quickly becomes a falling down hug-fest and a game of exaggerated bows.

Luckily, the ref can stop all that nonsense by simultaneously scooping each girl into his arms and carrying them off the mat.

No clear winner was announced.
