My parents just told me about an hour ago that they were gonna stop paying for my MA training. My solution is to get a job which i already needed to do, find an affordable place to train. So i'm thinkin find a ghetto boxin gym or judo school or something along these lines in toronto. I do alot of work at my school cause i'm the President so i'm really busy so if i could find a place to spar on weekends that would be great. I can work my cardio and hit the weight room at school during the week. But yeah any affordable school anyone can reccomend? I live near yonge and eglington so the closer it is the better any help would be appreciated?

1. Go to U-Toronto's Hart House.
2. Buy an external membership (unsure of price, but less than a year at an MA school)
3. Join the U-of-T Martial Arts Alliance Saturdays at 2PM in the Hart House Judo room.

If you have $60 left over it buys a term of Judo.

I just found this too on the mma.tv site... http://www.zeerebel.com/mma/submissionwrestling.html

watch the footage... the teacher seems very skilled. I'm going to check him out too.

The price is reasonable as well... 14 classes 100 bucks. It's only one class a week though... every sunday.

go to www.toronto.com

enter "boxing"

There are a few places...the Cabbagetown gym produced Sean O'Sullivan (silver medalist back in the 80s or 90s) and some other notables. It's also a youth center, so it should be cheaper. Dunno how close it is to you, but it's on TTC lines.
