Well I can tell you based on my first experience (first class last night) of Judo was really fun though exceptionally draining. A full body work out and the club I am joining is awesome, my friend and i were new and we had a sensai to ourselves for the entire night. I will probably have to start paying after next week but their prices are exceptionally low, 350 (canadian) for an entire year that covers all tournament fees and everything else short of purchasing your own gi. I am really sore but excited for the next class!
