    Combat Judo Effectiveness

    Looking into Combat Judo. Was wondering if this style would be considered effective in the street or if most would apply another "striking" art to compliment. Also, how would this art compare to BJJ. Reason I ask is Im in search of a new school and there is new place opening.

    Combat Judo? While I'm sure some of our Judoka have heard of it, I have not. Could you provide a link?

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer. Join us... or die

    This the stuff?

    http://www.geocities.com/natcomju/main.html (warning: very fucking annoying music).

    Looks more like traditional jujitsu than judo to me, that could be a bad sign.

    Pretty much anyone who was associated with or came through Smithtown Judo is solid. Give them a shot.

    Seconded. I've seen these guys at competitions. They are top-notch competitors.

    That's the club where I train, and it's awesome. We compete in everything, but we have a lot of guys who don't want to compete. So it's a pretty good mix.

    But we do a lot of different stuff it's not just judo, the head coach is a 4 stripe purple under Matt Serra, 2nd Dan (nidan) in Judo, and a former college and high school wrestler. The other coach, is a 1st dan (shodan) in Judo and a former high school and college wrestler , and a middle school wrestling coach. And we have another instructor who is a 3rd dan (sandan) in Judo, who has trained in Japan, and is very much the more traditional instructor.

    It's fun we do a lot of different stuff, wrestling drills, more traditional uchikomi (drilling), and moving uchikomi.

    Edit: The Sandan who trained in Japan, has trained under one of the last Kosen Judo guys. I'm not going to get into what's better or worse, but if you want to know the history of Kosen Judo, you definitely want to talk to him.

    Agreed. They know their stuff. I'd give them a shot as well. Good luck.
