    Aliveness (10/10):
    Classes almost always involve a good degree of Randori (Tachi waza as well as Ne Waza). Usually randori is about 1/3 of class time, with conditioning and technique taking up the other 2/3. There are also classes entirely devoted to randori ( see schedule on website).

    Equipment (10/10):
    Has everything needed for judo, tatami mats. Also has some workout eqipment for conditioning.

    Gym Size (6/10):
    While not a gigantic gym has more than enough room for 3 times the number of students we currently have. Also has a seated area for visitors, and an area where the weight bench and other workout equipment is kept.

    Instructor/Student Ratio (10/10):
    While the class has only two black belts and one brown belt, the very small number of students means everyone gets alot of personal attention.

    Atmosphere (10/10):
    There is a very friendly "family" atmosphere to the dojo. Everyone remains lighthearted throughout and has a good time training. After bowing out handshakes, hugs, and chatter are the norm.

    Grappling (5/10):
    Both standing grappling and groundwork are taught in equal measure, and randori in both is common.

    Striking and weapons (1/10)
    Yeah, you got me. There's neither of these things in Judo. But there are those defenses against strikes and weapons in nage-no-kata. So there, I'm ready for teh streets. :glasses10

    It's a good distance from where I live, but if I would hope on 76 I could get there.

    Shouldn't be that far. I'm in Lemoyne and it's maybe a 10 minute drive.

    I live in Mechanicsburg so for me it would probably like a 20 or 25 min drive.
