So my sempai will be living in Savannah, GA for the next few years while furthering his education. He would like to keep training in something than a Koryu. He doesn't mind another TMA, be it CMA, FMA or whatnot. I have searched on the site for schools, and the only thing I've seen that's worthwhile is a MMA school, but he isn't the MMA type. Any assistance in finding him somewhere to train is most appreciated. If this is in the wrong forum, mods, please move.

There was a previous thread about the place that wasn't encouraging. BKR couldn't find the place in any of the three National governing bodies.

United States Judo Association list of chartered clubs, do a search on state and GA. Not that I"m not endorsing any of these, just providing information.
United States Judo Federation: Georgia is in the "Shufu" Yudanshakai, however, there could be clubs registered with other yudanshakai (the regional organizational block of the USJF). http://shufujudo.org/wp-content/uplo...er-Clubs_J.pdf
And finally, the national governing body for Judo, USA Judo.
Savannah seems to be not very well endowed with Judo. This lists himself as black belt in Judo
Champions Training Center offers "no gi" Judo: http://www.ctcsavannah.com/judo.html
Not exactly sure what they mean by that. The instructor listed is for sure an experienced fighter, a black belt "under" ...

I'd say he should check out Champions...he might have pre-conceived notions of what it's about, as well as what Champions might be like.
Looking at a map, Savannah is fairly close to Hilton Head, so...
