Kanokoshi Judo Center
Classes almost always involve a good degree of Randori (Tachi waza as well as Ne Waza). Usually randori is about 1/3 of class time, with conditioning and technique taking up the other 2/3. There are also classes entirely devoted to randori ( see schedule on website).
Has everything needed for judo, tatami mats. Also has some workout eqipment for conditioning.
Gym Size (6/10):
While not a gigantic gym has more than enough room for 3 times the number of students we currently have. Also has a seated area for visitors, and an area where the weight bench and other workout equipment is kept.
Instructor/Student Ratio (10/10):
While the class has only two black belts and one brown belt, the very small number of students means everyone gets alot of personal attention.
There is a very friendly "family" atmosphere to the dojo. Everyone remains lighthearted throughout and has a good time training. After bowing out handshakes, hugs, and chatter are the norm.
Both standing grappling and groundwork are taught in equal measure, and randori in both is common.
Striking and weapons (1/10)
Yeah, you got me. There's neither of these things in Judo. But there are those defenses against strikes and weapons in nage-no-kata. So there, I'm ready for teh streets. :glasses10

It's a good distance from where I live, but if I would hope on 76 I could get there.
Shouldn't be that far. I'm in Lemoyne and it's maybe a 10 minute drive.
