Awsome quote! And exactly right, even in my newer, better Judo Dojo (Move to college brought me to Worcester, MA; a much bigger city than my small town with more and better training opertunities) NeWaza has to be done QUICK, but that doesn't mean poorly or stiffly... just intense and fast.

Also, "Hawk" drill "games"??? wtf happened to randori or even French Randori???
A green belt running the class seems a bit strange to me. I guess if it's just the intro to Judo stuff then it could be OK, but there really should be a senior brown belt or higher in charge.
It's because it doesn't happen. I've even yet to see a club run by a Shodan. Mostly Sandans to Yondans I've seen. Currently my school has 10 BB's a few of which are Sandan/Nidan, but I found a pretty healthy dojo. I guess, whichever you feel teaches you more and works your groundgame better I'd stick with if you still are thinking BJJ
