I am hoping to get people's opinions on private classes vs. group classes.
I've been training in Isshinryu Karate for about 2 years, I started Gracie Jiu-Jitsu 4 weeks ago, and I started Muay Thai just this past week. Because of my constantly changing work schedule, I'm never out in time to attend group classes at any of the schools where I train. Because of this, I've just been taking private classes.
Aside from being much more expensive, I'm curious what people think about a training regimen that is based primarily on private classes vs. one that is based on group classes.

ups and downs.. up more attention one on one with a instructor if he is a instructor (b/b ect )and not some lower rank is more productive as you get more instruction for the time . On the other hand you dont get to sparr work out ect with peers and that is a very important part of training.

OC Kid basically hit the nail on the head. If you have to chose one or the other, I'd stick with privates and try to find people to spar with and stuff outside of class.
There's been a bunch of threads dealing with this topic. When the site's Search function is up and running it would probably worth your while to try to find some of them.

I wish I could afford private lessons. :(
I have to settle for waking up at 5:30 in the morning and going to early morning classes when only 6 people are there, so it's like a semi-private.

I tried the search function, but none of the threads i found touched on this topic specifically. Maybe I just didn't search using the correct terms.

Was that the exact title? "Something about the guard"

I think group classes are better, they usually cost less and you get the feel of different partners. Then again, I'm stingy with my money.
