Gardena Judo Club. OCJTC in Anahiem. Norwalk Judo Club.

You cannot train hard until you know wth you are doing, but that can come fairly fast.

I hear a lot about them, but I see they have a 3 year waiting list. Can anyone give me some extra info on the dojo?

Is that really true? I've never heard of a waiting list for judo.

South BayJC and GardenaJC is really close to where I live and was wondering if anyone had any insight to these dojos. What kind of style or type of places are they? Not sure what to ask, just looking for a place that's has a good program for adults.

I'm flying out tomorrow and won't be back for awhile. Just thought it would be good to get an idea of these places before I go about checking them out. Also does judo clubs have free trial classes like they usually do in bjj?

I have visited, trained,teach and coach at both clubs niether clubs teach matwork; however, Gardena will give you a strong standing foundation and they have lots of visiting adults to practice with and lots of blackbelts. Southbay is a kids club. I and both have a very small monthly fee and no waiting list for adults. join gardena, once you get a insurance card for one of the judo governing body you can visit any judo club (95% of them for free)

That actually sounds exactly what I'm looking for. I know judo involves ground technique but I'm really interested in learning the standing aspect of it, especially the foot techniques.

Wow!

I saw after a few one time fees, it works out to $20 a month. That's incredible, I think I need a break from $100+ a month. After a few years it takes it's toll.

Can you explain this a bit more?

West Coast training center only operates during the weekends?
Anyone is invited? $10 sat and $5 sun but both days together is $10?

Sounds like a great supplement on top of someone's regular training.
