    Judo in San Antonio

    Do any of you guys know of any Judo schools/clubs in the San Antonio area that offer daytime classes? I work in San Antonio and live in New Braunfels. There are no Judo schools in New Braunfels, but there is a Danzan Ryu school. I take classes there. But, my job is now allowing three hours of PT per week, during working hours. I want to use those hourse taking Judo classes. Google shows me that there is an Alamo Judo and Universal Judo. Neither of those have daytime classes. But, there must be some smaller clubs around that don't have web sites.

    When I was stationed at Ft. Sam, there was a judo club that used to meet quite regularly that was open to all. I'd check it out to see if its still active.

    At Fort Sam? That would be very convenient.

    Too bad. I just got off the phone with the fitness center. Judo is on Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30. That's not going to work. I found an MMA school nearby and they have classes at noon during the week. I'm going to check them out and see if they have what I'm looking for. I'm looking for more throwing/grappling and less punching and kicking.

    In a city as large as San Antonio, you'd think that there would be more Judo around. ****, New Braunfels (52,000 people) has no Judo at all. At least my Danzan Ryu class has a Judo black belt. Maybe I can work out some privates with him (no romo).

    Already have. Unfortunately, no daytime classes. My DZR sensei just started taking classes there.

    OK. So, I'm starting with an MMA school that has daytime BJJ classes on Monday. They want 75 per month for two classes per week. That sounds reasonable to me. My wife is going to complain about the money, but I'm just going to ignore her until she stops complaining.

    I love the techniques that I learn in my DZR classes, but we just don't do enough randori or rolling to make them work. I need this.

    Which MMA school are you training at? Warriors Way? Also it's a shame daytime is the only option you have because Jim Hrbek is at Universal Judo and the man is a great coach and has some solid players.

    I'm going to start at Powerhouse MMA on Monday. The thing is this; I take DZR classes at night, three times per week. But, that's in New Braunfels, where I live. My job just started allowing us three hours per week to work out during working hours. It can't be on the way home. It has to be during working hours. So, I want to take advantage of that to become a better grappler. Plus, if I get hurt, I'm covered by worker's comp. It's a good deal, if you ask me.
