    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    How much do you pay a year for MA?

    Hi,
    I used the search function prior to starting this thread and whilst there were threads questioning the amount one pays for muay thai and brazilian jiu jitsu there were few mentions of membership fees for other styles (the ones that did date back to 2005 or earlier).

    So, without further ado, how much do YOU pay for your training per annum?

    Me?
    $105 Uni Sports Membership
    $20 a month for Wrestling 2x a Week
    $7 a month for Boxing 2x a Week
    $35.2 a month for Transportation
    $250 worth of boxing equipment (1x bag gloves, 1x sparring gloves, 1x helmet, 1x mouthguard, 1x jump rope, 1x 70lb heavy bag)
    $70 worth of wrestling gear (1x singlet and 1x headgear)
    $30 sports dufffel bag

    = $1201. 4

    Next year would probably (hopefully) be less costy as I don't need to buy the gear again (maybe I'll buy some shorts and shoes for boxing and shoes for wrestling but it should still cost less)...

    HOW ABOUT YOU? :ExcitedTroll:

    I pay 35 euros a month so thats 420 a year.

    There are 12 krav classes a month i can follow as well as any of the various fitness programs.

    I usually take two classes a week.

    Pretty cheap, no?

    €65 per month for BJJ and Judo (as many times as I can manage - classes are twice per day six days a week)
    €40 per month for Krav Maga (twice per week)

    Tag on an average of €30 per seminar at an average 3 each for BJJ and Krav per year. Also, I'm currently going through a gi a year, so that's another €100 (I'm a big bastard so it costs me extra)

    Maybe 2100 for gear, training costs and fuel? I know many guys who will spend that again in supplements.

    When you factor in missed overtime hours, days off for weigh ins it adds up.

    It comes down to priorities. How much do you spend on alcohol each year? I don't drink.

    Let's see.

    Unlimited classes, access to weight lifting room, great coaches.

    Gear excluded I pay about $50 a month.

    It's within walking distance of where I live.

    I'd say my life is pretty swell.

    I had to give up drinking to take t3h d34dly.

    Anyway, Krav Maga classes are $150 a month for 3-4x a week + 3-4x conditioning sessions per week. The jits is around $100 a month for 2-3x a week. In my spare time, I get additional Parkour/Freerunning lessons from a gym in DC at $20 a pop for walk ons.

    +3 gallons of gas per week for transportation specific to taking the deadly.

    There's probably more money involved for things like gear.
