    Help me choose: Training on the cheap in Chicago

    Hello. I have a pretty decent martial arts background (MMA, CLF, WC, Capoeira, FMA, etc.). I'm just looking for a space where I can apply some technique and maybe pickup some things that might be useful. Also (and maybe most importantly) I'm trying to train for under $50 a month. Thus far the only thing that I've been able to find is TKD and Karate. What do you all suggest?

    Look for a Judo club. Judo is cheap and widely available.

    Hey Judo is a good idea! I've wanted to tighten up grappling skills. And I'm finding some cheap stuff already.

    Hmmm...TKD or Karate for striking and Judo for grapplng? Whaddya think?

    Boxing would be interesting. I've boxed before. I've always been interested in Kyokushin.

    This school is definitely too expensive.

    You might want to check out the local YMCA or community center. Most hyped up gyms with a good curriculum and quality instructors will have a price range of 110/mo and up.

    I vote for judo and boxing. For a month of unlimited instruction, judo costs me $45 and boxing $20.

    There's a kyokushin school an hour away that costs $90 a month for unlimited classes.
