    Anyone know of a place I could train some either Judo or BJJ while I am in France? I would only be able to do no-gi because I didn't bring my gi with me. I would also prefer a place where one of the instructors speaks English, but I can try and train even if they don't speak English.

    11 views and nothing? Is there nothing in Bordeaux, or does no one have any experience with any gyms that might exist here?

    I have no direct experience of any of these places -- never been to Bordeaux despite being half-French -- but you may want to check them out. Courtesy of Google:

    There are bound to be a bunch of places to train judo also. By the way, it may be worth buying a "no-name" judo gi to train BJJ when you're in France -- they're not very expensive.

    I did an exchange semester in Bdx and did some muy thai / savate at Impact. Good times.
    Don't know about judo / BJJ over there though.
    And I wouldn't count too much about lessions in english.

    Helpful, I don't want the whole thing to be in English, that would be selfish. It would be nice though if someone spoke enough English to tell me wtf is going on.
