    I wanted to attend Marcelo's club's training when I got back from Iraq. I still do. But I'll admit, one of the primary reasons I didn't attend before I left was the fact that the local market apparently will bear some ridiculous prices. People are willing to pay top dollar for limited access to good products, it seems.

    Our TMA club charges $50 a month for 2 classes per week, each is 2 - 3 hours long. We see none of that as profit; 100% goes to rent and upkeep.

    Paying nearly 3 times what I pay for another class is slightly more than a little more than what I'm willing to put out, regardless of what the training is... It just ain't worth that much to me. I can get good training through the Army for free, get sent to the Combatives school house (and get paid to do so), and I can seek out others to train with for free... Not to mention competitor locations that I could attend classes with if I chose to make the drive. Why would I pay that much money when other options are available?

    That's how Seattle Jujutsu club works, it's a co-op club not for profit. Dues are $55 / mo.

    I really like NWJJC and would be there full time if I were a straight BJJ guy or wanted to do no-gi. Judo is just my thing now, but Seattle JJ is very heavily ne-waza focused so I don't feel like I'm missing much. My experience has been that I am just fine rolling with BJJ guys who have comparable mat time to me. If I were into no-gi or MMA, then Seattle JJ wouldn't be a fit either, it's pretty much old-school gi grappling.

    MattW did an accurate review here:

    Here's our instructor's rundown of what we do:

    Anyone in the area is welcome to come down and check it out.

    That said, I have the utmost respect for Brian Johnson and the NWJJC. Bunch of great guys there and excellent training. Every few months I like to do some drop-ins to say hi to everyone and roll with some different guys.

    I don't know much about the other BJJ places in Seattle except through word of mouth, but everyone I've met from Gracie Barra have been good training partners and cool guys.

    Here's a derail, but as long as I have the NW grapplers' attention;

    Say I wanted to learn some Combat Sambo, how is this school?

    I believe that's the school Oscar Goldman was talking about. I've heard that the instructor does Sambo. I guess you would have to read the review for sure.

    Seattle jujitsu sounds like a really interesting school! I would love to train there if I visit Seattle.

    FWIW, I've trained with Marcelo Alonso a few times when has come to Los Angeles. He is a true "Professor" of BJJ. Very deep & broad knowledge of BJJ techniques. A real gentleman too. Price aside, he is highly recommended.

    Wow, that's pretty expensive. Ivan's gym is $120 for unlimited access to any/all classes. Which is really good when you consider he teaches all the classes himself.

    As far as keeping with some previous posts, if not Ivan's then I would highly recommend seattle JJ club. I've met some of the guys before, and they really have a passion for what they do.
