    Kodokan Judo is Judo. Other variation is Kosen Judo but that's almost exclusively within Japan only. Most Kodokan Judo schools focus 80% standup and 20% ground. I have no idea on what Kokushiryu Jujutsu is.

    Ray Longo's gym is good spot. I believe it's 120 a month for unlimited. PM MBKickboxer when you have enough post to get PM ability.

    Please don't. Most of them suck. Even tho I'm Korean I will be one of the first to tell you that currently, most Korean MA sucks except for Yudo which is Judo.

    Edit: added currently.

    Go to their website and do some surfing. The site is a bit outdated by but Luke Cumomo from TUF 2 is one of instructor there and they have fighters that compete in local amateur fights. As for 120 bucks a month, that's pretty damn cheap for non-bullshido martial art schools in Long Island.

    Usually Judo is cheapest but I'm not sure how much that place charges.

    McDojo just means heavily commercialized and usually expensive. The lineage for BJJ instructor at that school is legit so it shoud be non-bullshido.

    Just FYI, all BJJ taught by legit BJJ instructors in LI or NY metro area is not cheap. No matter where you look.

    I don't know much about Tang Soo Do.

    I do know that Eskrima is from the Philippines and the word Eskrima is Spanish for fencing (like with swords)

    In addition to striking, grappeling, joint locks, the school I recomended also teaches kobudo (weapons) one of these weapons is Tan Bo which is a pair a 2ft sticks similar to the Eskrima, but with other techniques besides blocking and hitting. Like joint locks and take downs using the sticks.
    People often tell me that I fail to see the gravity of the situation.
    I see the gravity, and I say...

    Step right up folks and watch me defy gravity!

    Can't tell you about the Escrima.

    Who's the Dangsoodo instructor?

    DSD can go one of three ways.

    1) You'll get crappy American krotty.

    2) You'll get something like a Korean Shotokan.

    3) You'll get something like a Korean Kyokushin.

    You: Got BJJ?
    School: Got money?
