    Planning to start Judo soon!

    Guys I just found out that there is a judo place located about a 10 minute drive away from my house. The best thing is that it's only 30$ a month! Why is judo so cheap? Anyway, the bad news is if I start doing judo I won't be able to afford my eskrima classes anymore or follow through with my plan to switch and train at Philip Gelinas place(starting University next year his gym is located maybe 10 minutes away from the school).
    I've always wanted to try judo it looks so fun and I've never trained grappling before, but my passion is FMA. Im conflicted guys.

    Judo is awesome. I just started going again after a hiatus and confirmed that I both love Judo and am out of Judo shape (despite lifting weights a lot... its a different kind of conditioning, obviously). Jeepers I like Judo.

      I would try it. How long have you been doing FMA? I would take Judo for a month or two, see how you like it. It's very different from eskrima so it should be interesting.

        I've been doing FMA for almost a year now and im completely in love with it. Quick question how can I verify if any of the claims on the club's website are true?

          Well, they all sound very reasonable and believable to begin with. You could watch a practice and ask if any of the students there qualified for nationals this past year. And then train there and write us a review!

            Looks like a nice club, No claims of being masters or of knowing the "secret" Judo

            If you're dead keen you could always look though the competition results I would image that the Canadian Championships results would be somewhere online and the club is normally listed next to the player. If they have guys competing at that level they must be doing something right

              Funny, I'm just about to start FMA (pekiti tirsia Kali) and stopping Judo after a year of training (still doing Muay Thai/BJJ).

              Loved Judo but found it hard on my body (34 years young!) and was getting injurred often so I switched to BJJ. Nothing feels better than getting a good throw during randori though!

                The club is fine...part of Judo Canada and all that.

                  Well, since you can't take your stick with you everywhere, assuming you are interested in self-defense, then do pick Judo. But of course, if you really want to be deadly as fuck, stick with FMA, where you can basically kill people, or beat up five guys in five seconds.

                    The instructors are typically all volunteer. Also they usually don't have full-time facilities. In that clubs' case they are practicing in a church basement, although with 5 days/week that is a fuller schedule than you often see.

                      Im going to have my trial class. The answer is yes, im taking judo for self defense purposes. Im looking to be well rounded and efficient. I used to be a kung fu nut rider until I found this website. They teach kickboxing where I take escrima so my striking is average and now I want to dabble in grappling. By the way what is the difference between Judo groundwork and bjj groundwork?

                        I hear you, man. I just found a non-profit judo program (fully registered / aligned with Judo Ontario and Judo Canada) close to my place. Cost = 25$/month! Considering how much BJJ, JJJ / Can-Ryu, MMA (etc.) schools generally charge in my area, this is a smoking deal.

                          There is a thread on the differences between BJJ and Newaza (Judo ground work)

                            It more or less comes down to rule set Judo is mainly standing and BJJ is mainly groundwork.

                            So players become more specialist in the area they need the most a Judoka won't win many matches if they can't are not good during standing but they can get away with being poor on the ground by defending until there stood up by the ref. I am sure there is a BJJ equivalent

                              That's an oversimplification. The ruleset tends to focus competitive players that way but there are judoka with good ground skills and BJJ players who are good standing. BJJ is less restrictive in the ruleset, so there are more locks and so forth that are legal. The thread you pointed out has more details.
