    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    A quick update:

    The dojo has moved into a new location. Although the actual mat space is smaller, one wall in the new place is padded. If you watch the videos from the old school Fitz posted, you'll see a stone wall which greatly restricted using the old mat space fully. Plus new school is beautiful! The architect did a great job giving a clean, modern feeling with enough touches to give it a very nice character.

    Key points in the new place:

    - Brand new Swain Gold Medal Premium Tatami mats
    - Fully springed sub-floor in training area.
    - School is now on the street level instead of a sub-basment.
    - Bathrooms are now inside of the school instead of having to go upstairs.
    - Air Conditioned.
    - Padded wall.
    Calm down, it's only ones and zeros.

    I had my first class at Oishi's dojo Saturday. My impression of the place is the same as everyone else's -- they're a great bunch of people who run a fine dojo that offers first rate instruction. The place itself is clean and welcoming. It's expensive, but so is everything else in NYC.

    This is such a welcoming, fantastic place to do Judo in. If you train here you will instantly love Oishi-sensei-- everybody does.

    There's NO attitude from the regular members and people are super helpful.

    This dojo personifies what Judo and NYC are all about.

    Truly lovely.

    Help! Why don't I see the ratings?! Were they taken down? Am I missing something? Also, since a couple of you guys posted thorough reviews/impressions while relatively new to this school, if you have continues to train there can you update your impressions? It would be much appreciated as I am considering joining.

    Go check it out for yourself and see what you think. Mr. Oishi is VERY well known. Hell, my sensei in New Orleans back in the 80s and 90s knew him and had nothing but good to say.
