    JJJ Dojo Recommendations in NYC

    Any recommendations for a quality (read: alive) traditional Japanese JJ school in NYC (preferably in Manhattan)?

    Thanks!

    Don't bother looking. Unless you want a Ko-ryu for historical/culture reason you are better off with a school that trains alive derived from Japanese Arts.

    Here are some schools I would visit:

    kokushi budo institute has a JJJ program but if you want alive training you have to do the judo program.

    Thanks Plasma, those would've been my recommendations if my buddy wasn't specifically looking for JJJ. He's a very high level judoka (competes at nationals, trains at NYAC) and I think he likes the traditional aspects of JJJ.

    I hear awesome things about Combat Sambo, maybe I'll point him in that direction.

    Thanks Ming, this actually looks like it may be a good fit. My buddy is a big time judoka, so I'm sure he'll be able to tell straight away if the JJJ classes are alive enough for him to get something out of them.

    No problem, FYI the JJJ classes are really not alive at all, the only class with live sparring is the saturday newaza class which is a shared JJJ/Judo class.

    it would surprise me that he doesn't know shintaro higashi, who runs the judo program. the JJJ/Aikido/Karate is still taught by his father.

    He might, as I said, he's pretty serious about judo :)

    He did mention working on his ground game a bit, maybe the Judo/JJJ newaza class would be a good fit.

    You can check out the Shinkage-ryu school there, it's classical sword work.

    It's kind of odd that that level of judoka would have time to do JJJ, alive or otherwise. BJJ I could see adding in, though.

    It could also be that he's looking for a job with my firm and is trying to impress me with his desire to train in a mostly dead art (since I spent far too much time doing just that).

    Unfortunately for him, I don't have much pull on the investment side. I'm a techie :)
