    Class Prices Opinions + Schedule - BJJ, MMA etc.

    First of all: 1)What is everyones' training schedule and how many times a week do you train?

    2) How much do you pay per month?
    Training at home as in conditioning, not training MA at home! .) and ONLY going twice a week (which I don't really want to do)?

    Who else trains very little in class and has to train more at home?

    "Training = pain." - I said that.

    I train every day
    I pay less than you
    Pricing is never fair
    Training at home sucks
    BJJ sucks.



    Go away I'm talking to myself

        Blade - I guess it depends on what exactly makes up the classes you attend.

        If the 2 classes a week you plan on attending focus purely on martial arts training/technique then that can be fine.

        You can then practise on your own, as well as do weight training and cardio training on other days.

        If you've got the spare time, and the money go to as many as you want!

          that's just it - at that price i'll only be able to afford to go twice a week.

          They focus on techniques and sparring yes...but going everyday to the same thing @ the same price is worth it, but only being able to go 1/3 as many times @ the same price?

          Yeah I will train cardio and start on weights.

          What's your schedule and how much do you pay FM??

            Blade: do you go twice a week now? <img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

            I pay $36,000 a year for 2 2hour aikido classes and 2 2hour KFSS classes a week. I can also attend some "theory" lectures....

              FingerorMoon, the problem w/training BJJ on your own is that you can't do it very well. I've lost count of the amount of time I've spent thinking how to execute technique, then when I get on the mat with a resisting opponent, all of it goes out the window. It's a unique problem to grappling that you can't train solo and get anything out of it, apart from doing weights/cardio work, which isn't technically BJJ training.

              Hence, if your body can take the punishment, the more training, the better. I trained nearly every day over January - early March, with a couple of breaks when I got worn out, and it made a huge difference to my game. I bulked up from 79kg to 85, walked for an hour to and from training as a warm up/down, cardio got far better, stamina, etc.

              In short, Blade is better off going to the daily classes IF it is of a decent standard. Else, the alternative should be taken into serious consideration.

                36,000....Does it come with a house? I don't mean to be offensive, but that's just someone taking your money. If you have that to give, good for you, but that's $750 a week, which almost no one even pays for a month. That better be some damn good instruction. Jesus Christ....I pay about $2,300 a YEAR!

                (Judo)-----$50/month Unlimited classes
                (ICS)------$75/month Unlimited classes
                ICS Covers: JKD, Karate, BJJ, Muay Thai, Silat, Kali, and some Kempo.
                (TKD)------I'm on contract right now that was paid about two years ago, about $50/month but I am already paid off.

                $36,000 IMO is way too much. $3,600 would be different.

                  $36,000 year, I think he means he takes it in college.

                    What's your schedule and how much do you pay FM??
                    I'm baffled by the amount people in the UK and US pay.
                    In Australia, I pay $650 a year. An Aus dollar translates to roughly 30c+ in UK and 70C- in US so I pay far less than most here seem to.
                    They do charge for gradings though so they make a bit more there.

                    The important thing is to just get started. If you can only afford to do 2 classes per week then do that. At beginner-intermediate level (which I believe you are - apologies If I'm wrong....) you will learn a truckload with 2 classes per week. Just get off your butt and start! :)

                    Personally, I do 4 classes a week at the center.
                    But we do cardio, conditioning, weights as part of class as well as actual MMA training/sparring - hence the reason I said 2 days a week of pure MA instruction could probably suffice.

                    I also do conditioning/weights on my own.

                    Actually, yes I totally agree with you. I do a lot of grappling. I also do a lot of striking and was more referring to that when I said 'train on your own' - heavy bag work, drills, etc.

                      Wow...That shows where my head is. "Theory lecture" pertains to something other than fighting theory in this case. I get it now. Wow am I slow.

                        Yeah, I use to do the 20k a year thing...now I am taking a semester off and I train for free.
                        And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

                          Me. School sucks. Parents suck. Cleaning sucks. Driving to the gym sucks.


                          Damn, $36k a year for tuition and board and room is still quite a bit.....something to consider if I move away....
