Yeah, doesn't sound so great, but the head instructor checks out.

yes i will agree the prices are not cheap,you get what you pay for!
Show me another third degree black belt that charges less. So all you are left are purple and browns and 4 other first degree bb's on long island that call themselves instructors.
As far as the mma goes its only an extra $30 a month for 16 classes a month.
I know who wrote this kioto review and understand you feelings towards the pricing and belt promotion fees but to attack the school where you have been training at for the last 4 years is not an honorable thing to do.Kioto is responsible for the technique you have now and just because now all of a sudden you dont like the price policy's does not give you the right to attack them in a public forum.
Good luck at your new academy!
Which part isn't true? Are the classes 45 minutes? Does it cost 210 a month? Is there only one open mat a week? If it is that much more more expensive and its in fact "worth it" then the students should be WTFPWNing people at competitions, is that what's happening?
The classes do range from $160 a month to $210. for the absolute beginner there is a class that is 45 min but after a little while he can come to the all levels classes that are offered everyday and can run one hour to an hour and 15 minutes long. The open mat is on Sundays and can run up to two hours long.
as far as the students go they are very well trained, we have had pan-am winners among many others kioto students do very well at competitions and the school holds tournaments regularly.
The school is not cheap but like i said you get what you pay for.
And the instructor does not hold back techniques as stated by the person who wrote the review

Is it true that Kioto bjj in Sayville charges $210 a month to train bjj or has the price gone up since this thread in 2010? I live nearby and was thinking of checking it out. But, it seems a little out of my budget as my wife and I are saving for a house and we'll be having a baby soon.

I went here and is was costly. I tried other places that I liked, but actually missed the way it was structured at Kioto. Since I'm a family guy, I can only devote about an hour a night two times a week, so having the shorter classes with the option of staying for a second class worked for me. The sessions may be short, but run back to back so you can stay for one session consisting of warmup, technique and training or continue through a second class. Other places with longer sessions do a warm-up, then learn several techniques, and don't start training until an hour and a half or more into the session and since I'm not one of those guys who can live at the dojo I found I had to leave without being able to train enough. I am thinking about returning to Kioto but only doing the 2x a week plan for less money.
Does $160 a month for two 45 minute classes a week sound appropriate for a beginner? Also, are 1 year contracts the only option at otherl bjj places?
