no idea with muay thai.

i did boxing for stand up and i went to astoria which is like a straight up ghetto rocky balboa gym. but the guy who runs it is straight up old school.

Went astoria few times. That guy dont teach anything. Its just plain old do your own thing and maybe he give you pointers as you go. Its not even a class. I learned way more going to franco fkp. Astoria the old man just said keep working your jab. I went 3 xs and never again.

I go to Budo in Burnaby on Hastings for BJJ... They also have an MMA class once a week and MT almost everyday.

A couple of guys went to fight in BattleField Fight League a couple of weeks ago at RiverRock Casino.

Anyone know of some good jiu jitsu dojos in the east vancouver area? I'm fine with either brazilian jiu jitsu or classical japanese ju jutsu, but it has to be strictly jiu jitsu. Ideally a balance between price and quality. Not looking for anything fancy - my preference is with a place that has a teacher that can teach well.

I've done karate my whole life, so looking to get some experience doing some ground work to diversify.

killarney community centre in e.van has JJJ i think it was pretty cheap something like $10 a class?

i was interested but never tried as it does not fit in my schedule but i bumped in to a few of the guys once asking them about JJJ and they seem like a nice group.

looks pretty awesome, might look into it. I am willing to shell out $50/month so I'm not too sure where that will get me in terms of Brazilian because I know they can get quite expensive.

I think $50 will get you no where for bjj. Monthly fees are closer to $150 a month where ever you go.
Not sure exactly where in East van you are, but there's one on Kingsway near slocan. Garcie Barra by main and Kingsway. If you're near boundary Rd, there's one across the street from Brentwood mall.

ya there's eastvan bjj near rupert/kingsway but iirc they're $150/month unless you're a little kid i think it's like $70 (i'm thinking of enrolling my son there let me know if anyone has input on the kids class). there's another place near kingsway/boundary i imagine is similar pricing.

renfrew community does judo that's quite cheap too iirc i think $20/month??? no idea what their program is like. i was looking for my son but they have a min. age requirement which he doesn't meet yet. if anyone has input how they are for little kids there too let me know

If your budget is around $50~/month, definitely look into Judo. Most clubs are around that price range.Judo's one of the cheapest martial arts to do because most of the clubs are regulated and are non-profit.

Check out which location works best for you and go try out a few clubs. Scroll down, you'll see all the clubs in B.C.

Thanks guys.

To my understanding Judo is mostly take-downs and throws, which I'm inclined to try, but it would be nice to learn some grappling as well.

I've heard some judo clubs do half standing and half ground though, which would be awesome!

Just out of curiosity because I've done some research on concussions before, but does anyone know how safe judo is from concussions? Just wondering, because it seems like unlike BJJ, the shear volume of throws to the ground might seem like it causes repetitive trauma to the head. On the other hand, I also feel like if done properly, the mats are good for shock absorption. I can't imagine it being near as dangerous as boxing where you actually get struck on the head.

Yeah, generally I would say more emphasis is put on the throws (Tachi-waza). I would say most clubs are probably 60% Tachi-waza and 40% Ground (Ne-waza) focused. You can definitely find some clubs that are around 50/50 though.

First thing you do in Judo is learn how to break fall properly. You'll need to be able to take a fall before you start learning any throws. TBH, I've wondered about the concussion aspect too. Most of the older guys I know that have done Judo for a while, none of complained about any type of concussion or head-related injury. Only time I've heard about it happening is when they got elbowed right in the jaw as a guy turned in for a throw. Osteoarthritis in the knee, hips, fingers are things that happen much more often.

JJJ is the same, you learn to take ukemi (break falls) so you shouldn't get hurt (unless you mess up your ukemi). probably the most useful thing in everyday life (i assume most of us will never get in a street fight, but higher probability of having a trip/fall). when asked they noted it can be hard on the body, mostly the back if anything (i had concerns b/c i have bad knees) and maybe joints from various locks

no i meant JJJ (japanese jj) - that was info i got when i was inquiring about it. i'd look in to bjj but since it's all on the ground and kneeling i figure it would be hell on my bad knees.

Judo originated from JJJ so a lot of throws/techniques are very similar. All 3 martial arts really are great and have similarities and strengths in different areas.

any recommendation where to buy BJJ Gi online? I'm kinda aiming to get a Tatami Zero G white Gi and I think shipping from the US is just so much cost to get it in. Taxes, duties and shipping.

Any canadian online store with good pricing?

If you're willing to compromise on the getting a Zero G, go on Amazon.ca and search for the Tatami Nova (blue, white or black available + free white belt), great starting gi at 123.49

Thnks for the input. I'm still in the market of purchasing gi now. I'm debating if I should get Vulkan VKN Pro as it's $150 in fightersmarket now

OR... Kingz balistico 2.0? I saw so many competitors are wearing them (maybe endorsed).

What's your favourite gi in the rotation?

Currently i have tatami estilo 4.0 which I love it but it's heavy, Grips secret weapon (meh..) and another no name lightweight gi (very rough after wash)

DCS is a solid gym with good training partners (Ryan is a monster) but I think that may be out of your 100 range? Unless you're not signing up for a monthly and just plan on doing drop ins till you hit 100 bucks?
