    this thread is a few years old, sensei shiina no longer teaches new students...i think he is only open to his former students.

    Oishi Judo is good. Tue/Thursday is run by Sensei Williams who runs a very hard practice. Oishi ahs a Greco Roman Wrestling background and medaled in it.

    oishijudo.com

    Then there's also the following, so take your pick:

    index new place in Queens

    McBurney YMCA Judo Club Instructor: Yoichiro Matsumura Run by Sensei Y Matsumura he also runs the NYAC Athlethic club along wiht teimoc Johnson.

    ITC NY Former IFl training center. Run by Russian Judoka's with some Sambo experience.

    Spartak Sports Club -- Judo Karate Self-Defense Also some guys from the former Soviet block with Sambo experience.


    Brooklyn Wrestling club, also teaches Judo but ithink the judo is more focused on the kids and grappling and wrestling for adults.


    NYAc has Judo but there's a certain requirement for their membership. Run by Teimoc Johnson.

    Starett City Judo I heard is good.

    also check out gentlewaymaster.org.

    They are a club in Fresh Meadows Queens, 3 blocks from St. John's University.

    They are not a very competition club from the looks of it however the coach is very nice, they run a nice class and have a very respectful atmosphere.

    I've heard Spartak is a very good club, close to where I live. I'll be checking them out vey soon.

    It is very good. I've seen them at some comps in Maryland and their players medal more often than not.
