My advise would be to sit in on a class, either as a spectator or participant (Most clubs will let you try a class or two before deciding). That way you can get a feel if it was you are looking for or not. A lot of it will depend on the Sensei. My club is a member of Judo BC which is under the National umbrella of Judo Canada which adheres to the olympic rules of Judo for competition. Most clubs you can expect a combination of practical, competitive practice along with traditional techniques including ground work.
