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.
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.
In any judo dojo I've been to a senior sensei or black belt is assigned to the n00bs because they need the most experianced and best help they can get (aside from the Coach tho') From what I hear neither dojo seems just right to me. Also, "Hawk" drill "games"??? wtf happened to randori or even French Randori???

This is not a very correct statement, but it may serve the purpose. A black belt in Judo may be compared to something in between the meaning of BJJ purple and brown belts. I read that somewhere... will provide a link if I find it.
That comparison is not 100% accurate as the focus of both arts are different and the meaning of the belts are different, too. But from that, I find it weird that a Judo brown belt is teaching a class. Never heard of that before.
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
