    Well now,
    I trade labour with my San Soo shifu hour for hour (he chages €7.50/hr, €100/year for membership etc normally. Gradings are free, but are few and far between- still white belt)
    I trade veg and eggs with my TKD trainer (normally €5/hour, €20/year membership- optional, €20/grading- membership required)
    I do administration for judo club so they pay my membership(€60/year) and matt fees (€2.50/hour). Gradings are €20
    I am lucky that most of the MA trainers in my area are commited to thier comumity and art so put thier students before profit
    **** ME! I have just calculated that I would have to pay €1280 ($1820) per year if I had to pay.
    cant remember cost of gear, but its not cheap

    $65/month, for 12 months = $780. Plus gas, which I don't really know how to calculate, replacing rattan sticks every once in a while, etc.

    $350 a month pays for my daughter, my wife, and myself. Unlimited classes and includes kettlebells, no gi, & kickboxing if I wanted. $4,200 a year. Plus gear. Plus tourneys. Probably around $5K a year. Not counting gas to get there.

    I have one son that is approaching two years old & another boy on the way.
    ****, Im going to be broke.

    $50/month at my Judo/grappling school. I figure $50-$100 for the odd gi or two. So, about $700 give or take.
    I don't pay for Silat & we wear street clothes usually.

    Good post. Probably a good time to tally it up....
    bjj-$100x 12m= 1200
    boxing $20 x 12= 240
    Seminars= roughly 300?
    Training Tools (Books, gear, etc)=roughly 400+
    Competitions=$300 +
    Gas=576(gas buddy)
    Total =$3016 and that's probably a big underestimate
    If wife found out= Castration
