    Looking for a Judo Dojo

    I'm thinking of trying Judo, I've been studying Hakko Denshin Ryu Ju Jitsu for several years and am looking for something which is more physical. We learn a great deal of techniques but I often leave the dojo without breaking a sweat.

    I'm looking at Park's Judo in Akron Oh (no website) he's been there for 38yrs and lists his credentials:

    Grand Master Kiel Soon Park
    * 5 Times Korean Grand Champion
    * A 2 Time World Judo Champion
    * Silver Medal Winner Olympic Games
    * Personally Developed Many National & International Champions
    * 1984 Korean Olympic Team Coach
    * 1986 & 1987 U.S. World Championship Team Head Coach

    My concern is I called and asked to observe a class and he says he doesn't permit that. Dues are $800.00 a year which is not out of line compared to many Martial arts schools in the area but I hate to signup and find that I don't care for the school.

    Also I can't find anything to verify his credentials.

    If any of you know of Kiel Soon Park or any other schools in the Cleveland/Akron Ohio area please let me know.

    I got a question and I think it will help "why does a Judo teacher have the title GRANDMASTER?"

    I say run..........Any one who calls themself grandmaster should be avoided.

    Ask him to throw you when you're trying your hardest to stop him.

    If you can't observe a class then give it a pass (hey that rhymed). I have seen a lot of schools run by Koreans that advertise Judo but when you show up they try to push you into a TKD program. If he has classes that meet several times a week and teach only Judo that's a good sign that he actually has a Judo program. If they're only teaching Judo once a week, than it's probably being taught as a supplement to their TKD.

    OKAY

    I would go if you can get to train with him and it is not a TKD primary school.

    Silver medal in Judo is great quals but the Grandmaster bullshit from TKD, I hope, would not spill over into Judo.
