    Its all just a logical continuation of the IJF banning touching below the belt.

    I think the problem with American Judo can be attributed in a small way to cost of membership. I went to enroll my son in a literal garage facility, and was asked for over $300 up front. I was taken aback and did not sign him up. The facility was a GOOD facility, and they were active in local tournements, but the cost is crazy. I guess my point is, many dojos are operating, but are forced to charge high rates to stay afloat in the American economy.

    Your experience is not the norm. Most Judo dojo in the US operate as clubs with volunteer instructors, in rented space, and with very low fees. My first club was a nonprofit that only charged $40 a month for unlimited access to three Judo classes and two BJJ classes taught by a black belt every week. The only places I've heard that can get away with high fees are either run by someone with high level competition experience or in areas with high property values.

    You sure it was a genuine Judo club? Because its pretty impressive that you managed to find the world's most expensive Judo club by accident.

    Yeah, I just wanted to help hammer home the point that this has to be EXTREMELY RARE as I have never encountered or even heard of such a thing in my entire life.
