    Do they have any dedicated standup trainers? An MMA class as well? I personally wouldn't be spending just shy of 200$ on training just one range of combat unless I was a professional fighter/had the money to seek outside training as well.

    I wouldn't pay that much, but that's because I can't afford it.
    I can afford it but I don't wanna feel like I'm throwing my money away.

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...
    Hmmm... I'm gonna call him and see if I could go for like 3 days a week. Thanks a bunch guys and gal.

    When considering whether or not a price seems fair you also have to factor in the location. Itís easy for people to come on here and post ďItís too expensive I only pay $80 where I train.Ē Thatís all fine and good but where do you live? Some parts of the country everything is way more expensive and New York is near the top of the list (unless youíre living out in the middle of nowhere). If this same guy opened up a school in Maine he wouldnít be able to even think about charging $180 a month to train since the average yearly income there is something like $28,000. Obviously due to the higher population density and higher income in New York you will have to pay more for training than if you lived somewhere else. You will have to compare his rates to other comparable schools in the area to determine as to whether his rates are reasonable or not.

    My feelings exactly. A lot of pure BJJ schools down here in SoFla go around $100+ to $150 a month unlimited (except the Gracie academy in North Miami, $160+ for 3 times a week, or with the Popovitchs at $200 for unlimited). By pure BJJ, I mean only BJJ and at most 1 or 2 Vale Tudo classes.

    If you were going to a gym with multiple disciplines, at least here in South Florida, it's between $160 to $250. But then, you are training grappling and Muay Thai (or something like that.)

    Qixote, I would not call this school a rip-off. There is a name behind it, and names are everything. Demand determines how much people are willing to pay. Furthermore, the more pristine and nice the gym is, the more expensive it may be. Location determine how much the gym owner has to pay monthly.

    I would certainly not call this school a rip-off since AT LEAST it gives you choices of enrollment (12 months, 6 months, no contract). Maybe, if you really, really like it, talk to the head instructor. Maybe he can cut you a deal where you pay less for say, 2 classes a week.

    If you are lucky he may let you pay for 3 only, I doubt it, though, for I bet a lot of those who pay for unlimited access train 3 times a week on average (just my out-of-the-ass wild guess.)

    Expensive, yes; rip-off, no.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Mike Casey's school is far from a rip off. Austin sends our guys up there every so often... we just sent Kamal Shalorus - Wrestling Olympic Team Member - to do a takedown clinic. He has done some cage fights in the UK and such. Very good stuff happening at that school. Very very much worth the money. Thats where I would be going if I lived in NYC. I would go there once or twice a month if I lived a train's ride away in another state too.

    I train for 100 a month, which gets me 2 classes a week. Open mat included if I feel up to it on Saturdays.

    I planned to start BJJ in October and I thought our school here was expensive at $75 per month (5 classes available per week); but I guess it's not that bad after all

    Anything more than $50/month is greedy, or they're paying too much for lease/rent on their facility, so ****'em anyway.
