Which part of St. Louis? County? City?

I would suggest the Kirkwood judo club:
http://kirkwoodjudo.com/

If you are into BJJ/MMA, you can try Rodrigo Vaghi's gym in fenton:

http://www.submissionjiujitsu.com (http://www.submissionjiujitsu.com/)

Or if you are in the city, try out one of Vaghi's brown belt schools:

http://www.guidrytraining.com/

You can also try out this place, but I haven't heard much about it:

your in maryland heights? i used to live there. isn't there a boxing gym on doroset next to the shnucks that's across the street from gold's gym?

check that place out.

i searched maryland heights and all thats around is TKD. i would say take the trip to kirkwood and train at the judo place with zen.

and you said your 16 and wondering about age for MMA? dude, you have plenty of time. start training now and when your 19 or 20 you will be a beast in the cage.

the last (and least) option is to find a bunch of guys and do a gracie garage. you can even get a blew belt that way!

oh, and one other option. lifetime fitness in chesterfield at the clarkson and clayton intersection (place i work out) has a BJJ program. twice a week, 80 bucks a month. the downside is you have to have a gym membership first so it becomes quite expensive very quickly.

Yeah, the thing is I can't make regular trips to Kirkwood myself as I do not have car yet, and am still reliant on my parents. WK, do you know if there is a bus route I could take to get from Kirkwood and back to South Side St. Louis?

If that's not a possibility, I might take up training at guidry's school, as I am sure there are bus routes I can take to get there and back.

Regardless, I hope you find a place that works for you.

ZoA.
