High-ish. But that's about what I pay and I think it's worth it. If the instruction is good and you can afford it, it's probably okay.

It depends on where you live. Where I am, that's dirt cheap.

For my taiji class I'm paying 3 for a two hour session, and once a month 25 for a 5 hour seminar. My Aikido class (when I could go) was 30 per month for about 8 hours a week (so less than 1/hour)
I consider this to be very cheap for the UK, but we use church halls and community centres, which are fairly cheap to hire anyway.

My school charges $70 a month, which allows you to train as many times a week as there are lessons set for whatever level you're in (about 6 set lessons per week in each level, 1 hour duration).

Just depends on the set-up. I practice in a church so our fees are very low. I pay $20 a month for 3 classes, 3 yoga sessions, 1 weapons class, and an infinete amount of private lessons (assuming there is time in there schedual) a week. Pretty good deal.

I pay 49 a month, no insurance,grading fees or anything else on top. For that I can train every night in either karate or tai-chi; alas I've got other commitments, so can't attend tai-chi at the moment (gnashes teeth...)

Depends on the quality of instruction. $70 per month 3 classes per week, 2 hours long each. First time I've found a class that goes 2 hours long -- 1 hour is too short, imo, if you factor in a warm up, to get a really good groove going.

When I used to pay for martial arts, I paid about 80$ per month, with no extra fees except occassionaly an extra hand-wrap or a shin-guard. And we usually train at our dojo, and when the weather is nice we usually hike for a few miles, before returning back to class.

And I trained about 20 hours a week, from about 4-8 every week-day.

Remember the time in the 6th grade where you got your ass-kicked by that 80-pound short-kid? Got BJJ?

At almost every San Soo place I've gone to, it was $60-80/month for 21 hours a week of classes.

I guess I'll call them see if I can tell if they have quality instructors. Really wish I could find a ninjistu dojo but I want to take JKD also. I guess you take what you can get.

The school in which I trained for the last three years charges $65 a month for your choice of 28 one hour TKD classes (Mon-Fri), and 5 one and a half hour Akido classes (one a day, M-F). You can attend as many of the classes as you like, The TKD classes progress in intensity until the last class. Weapons training is included two days a week, and sparring is offered four days (two days of competition sparring, two days of street fighting).I feel that it is a bargain.
