    Another one bites the dust...though I understand your wanting to study a striking art. I think once I move from this area I might make finding a Kyokushin place a higher priority than finding a new Aikido place. I was going to try and do Karate, Aikido, and Judo at the same time but the financial/time strain is simply too much. I really don't know how anyone studies more than two arts at a time.

    I'll come back to it someday. I just want to do some actual fighting while I'm still young enough to do it.

    I know of a good karate school with branches in Mechanicsville and Menands, NY that teaches a variation Kyokushin. From what i hear they have a pretty good full contact tournament record. I also know of some BJJ teachers in the Capital District area.

    I also know that there was a kickboxing place in Albany, but i think that it went out of business. There are a couple of good boxing clubs in the area.

    Yeah back in the day there was a BJJ place in latham, Im sure they are still around somewhere. Used to train in the same place as Irving Fausts capital aikikai (we shared the same school with a shotokan school and I practiced kendo there), but that building shut down.

    Perhaps there is something at RPI, SUNY, Union, etc?

    I know Irv Faust. I train under him for Aikido. He got me hooked up with my current BJJ instructor. I'll have to ask him about the group you're referring to, but I'm perfectly happy with the guy I train under.

    Was it Renzo Gracie affiliated? Because if it is then it's right across the street from lathem circle mall. It shares a space with an Akido school.

    theres also one in Saratoga Springs.

    I feel the same way. Though I might feel differently if I could find a more combative style of Aikido (Tomiki, Iwama, Yoshinkan, Nishio, etc.) being taught after I move. But I'm finding more and more often, I really want to know what it's like to hit something. So I think Kyokushin would still be a higher priority.
