    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Is this BJJ school too expensive?

    They just opened a Relson Gracie JJ right in town. My brother and I went to a free introductory class and we both really liked it. The teacher was insightful and generally a cool guy. It has two locations, one in the Bronx and one in Tuckahoe (right next to me). At the end of the class we ask about the fees and I was surprised it was so expensive. The membership fee for the Tuckahoe location (Bronx classes included):

    $179 per mo. for 12 months + 4% tax
    $189 per mo. for 6 months + 4% tax
    $199 per mo. for Open Ending Membership + 4% tax

    I was pretty dissappointed because I really want to learn BJJ and theres no other school around.

    I just read this thread and compared to the other school's prices I think this place is a rip-off.

    What do you guys think? Too expensive? The schools website is here - Gracieny.com and their schedule

    - Thanks

    It depends. How much do you make and how much can you spare?

    I pay $100/mo for 3-6 classes a week.

    I wouldn't pay that much, but that's because I can't afford it.

    I know the instructor - Mike Casey. I have trained and rolled with the guy. He is very very good and has trained with Relson himself. Those sound like unlimited training. It is cheaper of you go only for X amount of days. At least at my Relson school it is. I suggest you talk to Mike yourself. At my school I can pay $130 for unlimited. Mike Casey as been running a school for a very long time and he helped my instructor to start his own school. Also your in NY.... NY cheaper than other places... I think... *shrugs*
    This just occured to me just now and the edit button was still avail.... Relson's own school has rates for 3 or so days a week. So that is usally the generic rate plan for other Relson schools...

    Everyone knows Aikido has the best groundwork anyway.

    it's only too expensive if the school goes under for lack of students.

    Fuckin right it's too expensive. The last BJJ school I went to wanted $67- per fortnight which is $134- per month. No way.

    If it's grappling you want, go find a wrestling or Judo club. Thats what I did.

    Hannibal, it's not enough to find a Judo or wrestling club. You actually have to train there.

    Unfortunately that price does seem very expensive, most likely playing off of the Gracie link.

    Most fight gyms and jujitsu schools in my area run around 70-100 dollars a month for unlimited classes. Some go up to around 120, but I haven't seen many gyms as expensive as 179 a month plus tax... and that's for a 12 month plan, which I wouldn't recommend.

    In the end it's still your call.
