I'm interested in training in Toronto, has anyone found a legit place for BJJ and some Muay Thai Downtown ish? I'm not looking to compete but would like to learn BJJ from a decent school, I live Vic Park and Kingston Rd.
Seems to be a lot of new schools . Phone Post

If you are at VP and Kingston one bus will take you almost at Action & reaction's door. In the other hand you are close to the subway line, check Toronto BJJ and Mecca in downtown.

Tons of great gyms downtown!

Come do a trial class with me at Black Devil MMA and see if we're what you're looking for.

Bias is ok, we're all human :)
Toronto BJJ has a very good program, no question there.

Toronto BJJ has a top level Black Belt instructor in Jorge Britto, dozens of world class training partners, and literally hundreds of people to roll with of all sizes shapes and experience levels. Kick ass gym, especially for BJJ.

I really enjoy training with Sergio Cunha at Mecca at Queen and Bathurst. He was one of the original instructors of Chute Boxe in Curatiba Brazil. He is a brilliant instructor of all the elements of mma, especially Thai, and a cool dude.

Heard great things about the other gyms mentioned too.

You should go try 2 or 3 of them. It'll be fun to take the tour and you'll find there's lots of great gyms and fantastic people in these sports in Toronto.

Have fun.

Check out TorontoBJJ, as previously mentioned. Nice group of guys, and the place in general is a class act.

If you're anywhere near Claude Patrick's gym, you owe it to yourself to yry it out. The guy genuinely loves the sport and is an excellent instructor. Oh, and I hear he's fairly good at this UFC traneing stuff...
