I started training judo recently and it has greatly helped my wrestling and bjj. any high school wrestler who isnt wrestling freestyle/greco should be doing judo in the wrestling offseason.

Just like "Fight Club" we can't talk about Judo. But honestly, attending one CJBBA (Chicago Judo Black Belt Association) meeting will reflect the small numbers. There are simply not enough instructors.
