BJJ/MMA in Windsor, Ontario
Did a search here and nothing came up. The only thing my google skills turn up is
"Central Combat Sports", http://www.centralmma.com/main/index_files/training.htm
Sounds good but googling his name turns up absolutely nothing. He's not listed as a BJJ BB at onthemat.com.
Coach Peter Zahran, one of Canadaís foremost combat sports/mixed martial arts trainers. Coach Zahran is an experienced combat athlete, Black Belt, and fight science specialist
So two questions, does anyone know if this place is legit and can anyone recommend good places to train in Windsor? The best place I've found so far is Furukawa Judo ( http://hometown.aol.com/furukawajj/index.htm?f=fs ), but I'd prefer BJJ.
I've trained there a few times before. It's not bad, but I cannot comment on Peter's creds. Most of the people that train seriously in Windsor go to Detroit for their BJJ. If you can drive, it's only about 20 mins to the states. Not sure where the BJJ/MAA school are.
You can also try Kihon Karate in Windsor. They used to have a few guys doing BJJ out of there (and full-contact fighting too). Not sure what they offer anymore though.
Hey I'm in Windsor... although I havent taken any BBJ/MMA, from what I know, that link is to a guy that teaches at Lifestyle Family Fitness on central ave. Don;t know anymore about him sorry

Hey Chushin Ryoku, I'm originally from Detroit and I will be visiting over the Thanksgiving holiday and would like a place to train. What places in Detroit would you recommend?

Team Xxtreme Gym (Phlattline MMA Apparel and Gear)
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy Windsor
Central Combat Sports
Mady's Isshinryu Chikara Dojo
There may be more places, I think Kihon Karate closed or moved not sure. Feel free to add to this,
I trained at BJJ Academy Windsor when I was there over the new year, it's definitely legit and they were very welcoming (like a retard I left my wallet behind and they hung onto it for me which was a lifesaver as I was going back to Ireland the afternoon after and didn't realisetill that morning)
Although I think for a purple or higher you might need to check out somewhere else simply because (as far as i'm aware) they only have one purple, the coach, and several blues, so you might not have the necessary ass-kicking partners you'd need to improve.
Yes Bjj Academy Windsor was a nice little place, I went there, and he was very nice instructor. Good Price, Personally I donít want to train with a Gi, but I may go check it out because I would like to really improve my ground work.
Team Xxtreme Gym is really good if you want to fight MMA. They have a lot to offer and know there stuff. There are a few Professional Fighters that train there and many armatures.
They Offer a few different Classes.
Cardio Boxing class
Honestly they have everything needed to get you going as an MMA fighter,
10,000 Sq Ft gym, everything you need in it, Ring, Cage, bunch Thai Bags, Speed bags, Cardio bikes, Treadmillsí, elliptical, Free Weights, Kettle bells, Medicine Balls, balance balls, huge mat space. Everyone is great there, very welcoming and honest, When you are ready they will give you there opinion and even find you a fight.
