    The more the better.

    I've decided I'm going to give myself this week to decide which school to go to and maybe start at the end of the week or the beginning of next week.

    Thanks for all the advice you've given me so far everyone.

    Judo is another style that is very good and it is *less traditional* so to speak so give it a look.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. Since I've already got this thread open I won't start another one for this, what does everyone think of this?

    How long did you do it for? Does the style really deliver what it says it does? Some of the stuff the guy does on the website looks pretty impressive.

    But overall I think something more like Judo or bjj is probably looking like the best bet so far.

    I did it for 6 months before deciding I could not sustain 110 dollars a week. If you are willing to spend that kind of money with it go right ahead. In fact ring him and he will give you a free demonstration (which is slightly painful;) )

    However Judo and BJJ are Awesome.

    I'm not too sure about costs but it does train for compeition but most (almost all) of the techniques can be used extremely effectively.

    The kids class does no ground work.

    THe adults class gives you a very solid base.

    When you get more advanced you will learn the full array of chokes and armlocks.......so yes you will learn groundwork.

    However I suggest combining judo and bjj (something I plan to do next month of so)
