    I'm heading to Toronto in january for three weeks and want to train while I'm there. Prefrrably SW but MMA is fine too, as long as I don't have to use a Gi.

    My choices have narrowed down to two schools:

    Rebellion BJJ 85$ for three weeks

    and

    Toronto BJJ 120$ for three weeks

    (the prices of course in CAD).

    And here's their schedules:

    Try both for a class and then make up your mind. I think it will depend on what level you're at.

    I go to Rebellion.. I'd say the best thing about it is the social atmosphere. The place is open for a couple of hours after each class, so you can roll as much as you like. Most of the guys there don't use a gi.

    I've never actually been to Toronto BJJ (in it's current incarnation). But they boast some formidable talent - Rob 'Spider' Dizenco; Canadian ADCC champ, finished 4th last Abu Dhabi.. Wagnney Fabiano, Brazilian ADCC champ.. Leo Santos is sometimes there.

    I can agree that world class instructors > "friendly atmosphere" , especially since I'll only be there for thre weks, not three years. Thanks for the inputs.

    toronto BJJ is not to far from my house, shit i might sign up, they offer boxing, muay thai and MMA. 120$ fro 3 weeks is damn expensive, how much for a yearly memebership?

    does anyone know any other grappling or MMA schools in toronto?

    Don't write off Rebellion so quickly. Take a submission wrestling class at both schools and then decide. What do you have to lose by just trying?

    Yeah, that is probably the best thing to do.
