    Despite the intriguing title, there's nothing NSFW about this thread. Dumb Aussies.

    If you don't mind, can you pm me the pricing and the number of female members etc etc?
    It's an excellent school - although this opinion is coming from someone who didn't practice any martial arts before hand, other than a couple of stints at the local PCYC for kickboxing and a little bit of poorly trained BJJ, so I have little to compare it to in regards to quality. Danno and Rikko probably have a better idea of it's quality compared to other schools, but I'll PM you the details regardless.

    Katriona,theres a bus stop 20 odd metres from the front door of spma that'll drop you at Burwood station,otherwise it's almost a 40min walk,which can really suck after class.
    Can't really compare gyms for you though,all of my prior experience was with various tma's.

    As for the venue,are pcyc's considered government buildings?
    I have to carry 20million in liability insurance ( personal liability ) to work freelance in gov. buildings like the various entertainment centres,etc. ( 20mil is the government requirement )
    That sets me back between 1200 - 1400 dollars a year.
    I've always enjoyed telling asshole clients that I can blow up their **** & burn down the venue without even breaking my excess.

    At present though I hate my insurance company.
    They are refusing to renew my personal wages insurance in september 'cause apparently I have had too many claims for injuries in the last 4 years. ( funny,about as long as I've been training MT & Bjj ).

    For the last couple of years they were content to jack my premiums up big time,but now they claim that I'm too much of a risk due to my age & the fact that I continually ( & against doctors advice ) put myself in harms way,deliberately risking injury.
    Can't really argue with that...But what a pack of tossers!

    Okay back on topic guys.

    Is there anyone that has a friend with a studio or a martial arts school that might be willing to rent their gym out?

    I think your best bet will be at PCYCs (a type of police run community centre). If I remember correctly, the nearest PCYC to me in Burwood has a martial art hall which goes for around $50 per hour (http://www.pcycnsw.org/club_burwood_venue).
