Legit Schools in Seattle
Hey, I was just wondering if someone could guide me towards a couple of good schools out in the Seattle, Washington area. I'm looking to take up Muay Thai and some Judo when I head out there this September.
See you there! I have not found crap for MT in the Seattle area.
akuma can you PM me yet?

Are you looking for just Seattle or also the Greater Eastside?
Lots of good Judo in Seattle. I train at Seattle Jujutsu, but there are some other good pure Judo clubs around. There's also some good BJJ if you want to go that route as well. But there is a serious lack of Muay Thai in the area.
A few mma clubs do a bit, and there are a few smaller groups in outlying areas, but not too much here in town. At least no clubs that I know of are actually turning out pure Thai boxers that fight. I'd recommend the Kyokushin club at Seattle U as an alternative if you can't find any Muay Thai that strikes your fancy. (Oh the puns!)
Well I'll be living in Seattle with no car, so I'll have to rely on public transportation to get to class. It will depend a lot on where exactly I live, as to where I train.
Also, how's the mma scene out there? I'm on a team back here in PA and some of the guys from my gym would be interested in coming out there and fighting when I move.
The Shook, I just saw this thread. If you haven't found someplace to train, or even if you have, feel free to stop by and visit our class. We train Tue/Thur 730-930p and Saturday is 12-2pm (kumite). The gym will let you come in as a visitor to the class, during the week you may train with us on your first visit. However, the Saturday class is a Kumite class, and you would need to visit , observe and speak with Sensei before joining that class. General rule for Kumite class is that need to be active in weekday class as well. If you are active in another class/club, it may be possible to still train in our Kumite class.
We are a very affordable club, we are not for profit.
Excellent Judo in Seattle - I know people who train at Seattle JuJutsu, Seattle Dojo, and Budokan Judo here and all seem to be great places to train. Seattle and Budokan Dojos are south-ish, Seattle JuJutsu is in the U district.
Plenty of BJJ all over the place.
Lots of indy MMA in the general area, there seems to be low level shows almost every weekend these days.
As other posters have noted, yeah, not any pure Muay Thai here in the city proper, although places that train guys for MMA (like Ivan's or my BJJ school) have striking in the curriculum.
Do you train at both?
