Thanks for the imput. Does anyone know anything about the U of T club? I am going back to U of T for my teaching degree, so that would be cool. I just finally got a place which is located the opposite corner of Christie Pits from Toronto bjj, so I'm leaning towards going there.

I have trained at Toronto BJJ, both at their old location and at their new one. They are now a Chute Boxe school. I highly recommend them. They are a very tight knit family with a lot of great people.

The UofT club is run by a brown belt and blue belt from shah's. I believe the club's main purpose is to introduce university students to the sport and give them a place to train conveniently on campus. Serious students would eventually start taking classes at the central academy as there are more bodies on the floor as well as black belt instruction.
I train at shah's and I feel that I'm getting more than my money's worth.

I recommend Bravado Jiu Jitsu in woodbridge, run by Dan Moroney. Small gym, but danny is an awesome instructor.

I train at TorontoBJJ too. I did some extensive research into the different schools in the Toronto area, and arrived at theirs.
Now in my opinion, they're not necessarily the best place for BJJ (although I think they're very very good), I think Kombat Arts (located out in Mississauga) is better, but TorontoBJJ has a combination of the BEST schedule (they have BJJ classes early morning, noon, evening, and weekends) combined with a central location right off the subway. If you live in the Toronto downtown, it's hands down the easiest place to get to.
Other places to look at are Ascension in Scarborough (they seem fairly good) and White Tiger out in BLoor West Village, although White Tiger's teacher is a brown belt, and TorontoBJJ's a black belt. Basically in my opinion, if you're just starting out in jiujitsu, as long as the place is professional, you shouldn't worry too much about whether they're "the best." Just find one witha schedule, price, and location that fits your need.

hey man, I train at TorontoBJJ and I wanna ask:
I'm really torn between the different classes right now; should I just go straight to the MMA class.
Also, I signed up in March but haven't given in a void cheque or really trained at all...are they okay with me just starting to pay now?

If you're ever near York University there's a grappling club there. It's always looking for new members.
