Someone on another thread said that there is a school in Atlanta that charges $120 / month. That made me curious about what others pay for their classes. How much do you all pay per month, and how many classes does that include? I'll go first.
I pay $65 / month. The newer students pay $75. (I got "grandfathered" in before the rates went up.) That covers two Silat classes / week plus open mat time on Saturday. I think the BJJ classes are 3 times / week. I'm not sure. The MT and Kali classes are also 2 times / week.

At my TKD school, I charge my students about $30 a month. I do this mainly to pay the rent and buy training supplies. That's it.
I don't pocket any of it.

I pay $159 a month for me a my girlfriend.
We recieve unlimited group classes which are taught 5 days a week and one 30 min private lesson a week.
There are other associated costs. Our testing fees are about $30 every two months and entering our schools bi-monthly tournaments cost $5 an event, which there are 3 possible.
My whole feeling is you generally get what you pay for. Trainining at my dojo isn't cheap, put I feel the pricing is fair. Everything is done on a monthly basis, there is no long term contracts and there are different payment rates for your desired level or service and there are price breaks for families that want to do it together.
The pricing system breaks down like this, the basic program is two group classes a week and costs $69. Anything or anyone you want to add is $30 on top of that. For example if you what unlimited group classes, you now pay $99. If you kid wants to join, he gets unlimited group classes too, and you now pay $129. If your other kid wants to join, you now pay $159. You can change the program you are on anytime you want.
I should also point out that I live in California, so things are genrally a little more expensive here than other places. Considering what I get, I consider my training a relative bargin compared to other schools I've seen in the area.
I would also like to point out that my instructor isn't getting rich off of martial arts. He had modest home and my car is nicer than his. He does provide for his family, but most of the money goes back into the business for paying rent, staff, and buying new equipment.
