    Ronin Judo School(In Toronto)

    Hey all, wanting to start Judo. I live in Toronto and I have found a ton of good places(Really want to try the Minoru Dojo once I learn the basics) But I had heard about this school called "Ronin Judo" it's right near where I live so i'm wondering if anyone is familiar with the school at all and can give me an idea of the instructors there. I'm just curious because the title of "Ronin Judo" for a school seems a little Tom Cruise and hopefully this post doesn't make me sound too cynical, if so I apologize...for nothing! Godshpeed and thank you.

    I did Trad JJ at Minoru when they were at Queen and Duffrin and now I have two Judo BB's who trained at Minoru doing BJJ where I do BJJ. And the guy who runs the judo program was one of their all star students.

    Sorry I have no specific advice I just saw Minoru and felt like ranting

    Where are you located exactly?

    I live roughly at Dufferin and Dupont. The location of "Ronin Judo." is near Symmington and Dupont I believe so it's about two major streets away from me, just basically looking for a good place to begin.

    I thought the Judo club at Minoru moved and that its all now Aikido?

    The Ronin website looks like a nice and easy club.

    You can also look into www.torontobjj.com at Bloor and Ossington

    I may begin with Ronin Judo actually and maybe move into other schools as I get more comfy with the art. I had heard the Minoru Dojo is moving in with TKMT as well, but then again, that could be completely false.

    Ronin Dojo is run by the Sumo guy right? I've spoken to him a few times. He fought against Dan Severn and Emmanuel (the big sumo guy from UFC). He's apparently quite good, and I'd definately consider doing it. He teaches Kodokan style, not the zen Judo you may hear his name associated with.

    Forgive my ignorance, but what is the difference between Zen Judo and Kodokan style? I'm a hardcore Judo noob and yeah they seem very welcoming and laid back. Thanks.

    Ain't no Judo like the Kodokan Judo and the Kodokan Judo can't be stopped.

    The actual answer is that Zen Judo is what you could call an offshoot of Judo that focuses less on competition and more on 'self defense'. From what I hear no shiai (competition) or randori (sparring). If you ever come across this style, I'd stay away.

    Except for lulz.

    Cool! Kodokan sounds like what I want(to be thrown around and then educated as to why and how harshly i've been thrown around) Thanks for the info all! i'm definitely hitting up the Ronin Judo club.

    CFMA is worth a look as well, I had the privelidge of talking with Mr Vignale while we were watching the junior divisions at last years Morris Cup. Very knowledgeable and very pleasant. Later that day I lost twice to one of his students, once in my first bout and once in the final (god bless the double elimination tourney format, I had to beat everyone else in the division on the way to the final, thats value for your entrance fee).

    I wish I lived closer than Vermont so I could visit his dojo at some point.
