Looks to be what your looking for. Train in MMA, MT, and submission grappling. And I just checked into the prices for you, and they are pretty reasonable depending upon what you want to train. They will give you a free three day tryout period in which you can participate in any of their classes. Definitely worth checking out, IMO.

Hey, I live in Windsor right now and I'm training Judo unde Bill Thomson (http://www.judoontario.ca/events/profiles/b_thompson.html). It's a tiny club, but it's very informal and Bill has also done wrestling, sumo and sub grappling so he is very good... plus it's free of charge aside from your judo ontario fee ($75) and a yearly donation of $50. We train alot of subs there, and I'm gonna start doing nogi sooner than later. Check it out if you like, if you need directions just shoot me a pm...

I don't see why not, but don't get ahead of yourself just yet. You will probably be given an old white double wieve gi top on tuesday. I would still strongly suggest you buy a cheap gi though, cause the standup practice requires grip training, and youll be the odd one out for sure if your nogi all the time. I'm gonna start showing up 1 day every two weeks without a gi soon, so maybe we can work something out. Gi fighting is alot more fun than you think, give it a shot.

You and me both, but like I said already, don't get ahead of yourself. I came in with the same attitude, and I want to compete in judo, sub wrestling and amateur mma this year. Youre still young, so just come by and try it out, I guarantee you will like it, and who knows maybe you will get some ammy fights under your belt this year.
