    Hey guys, I'm going to be going to York University this coming September and I was just wondering what the best BJJ schools/ MMA schools are in the area.

    Things to concider
    -Theres a subway in the University
    -University first year budget, so price can't be too high

    Thanks

    Edit- York is a part of Toronto

    Toronto BJJ

    Kombat Arts

    Both will be a travel about 30 minutes either way

    Toronto BJJ might be closer.

    Toronto BJJ is the school I've been looking at the most so far. Looks really good.

    Since i'm not familiar with the subway system. Is it possible to get from York University to Toronto BJJ by Subway?

    Yeah...You can get there by Subway....Right near Christie Station on the Bloor Line...


    There's also Guerilla Gym formerly known as Kombat Fitness....
    Located at Runnymede and St Clair...Also accessible by the TTC...
    From York University...You can take the Keele or Jane bus south to St Clair and walk from there...
    Good instructors and I think its quite a bit cheaper than Toronto BJJ....

    It will take you forever to get there by Public Transit...

    There's also Victory Fight Club at Weston road and Hwy. 7 which is considerably closer than the other gyms.
