    Cost of BJJ lessons

    Hello gang,
    A week and a half ago I found out about the existence of a BJJ gym in El Paso, TX (www.gracieelpaso.com thanks to David Koresh Jr).
    Through their website it seems like they share training facilities with a San Soo gym www.elpasosansoo.com

    Welcome to Bullshido.

    Depends on how often you plan to attend classes and what you goals are....It appears that there highest ranked instructor is a second degree brown...

    Have you taken advantage of their free lessons offer? Could be the best way of deciding for yourself wether or not the price being charged is an honest one.....

      $160 is pretty high for a brown belt. I live in Austin where the cost of living is higher. I train under a second degree black belt and unlimited training is $120 a month.
      Shut the hell up and train.

        Also, an interesting use of 'degree' instead of 'stripe'... trying to make it sound the same as a degree of black belt?

          My school charges $160/mo for unlimited sessions. I could train BJJ up to 6 days a week. That's a deal. If they're charging you that for only 2 days a week, then I say it's a bit much.

            I currently pay 90 a month for 3 classes a week (plus open gym times) and access to the weight room etc. I'm not sure how much more it is for unlimited classes, but for strictly the grappling side of the gym I definitely don't think it would be more then 120 or so. But also keep in mind that I live in the Twin Cities where there are more choices for gyms than you apparently have.

              I currently train with a Rolls Gracie 6th degree blackbelt, classes available six days a week, two or three classes a day, depending on the day. I am in one of the most expensive places in the US to live (Fairfield County, CT). Cost is $125/month for unlimited classes.

              I know that Renzo charges well over $200/month for training in NYC. $160 a month is pretty high, considering where you are and that the classes, at least at the beginning, will be taught by bluebelts.

                My school charges $120 per month, but gives discounts for 6 months or 1 year memberships, and since I live in a college town, they also give extra discounts to us poor students from the university. So maybe they have discounts such as those which may apply to you. Also, they just charge a mat fee (much cheaper) for someone who only comes 2-3 times a month or so.

                Maybe you could do your Judo, and pay a mat fee to visit the BJJ school once a week or so? If I were you, I'd take advantage of the free lessons and talk more with the school's owner about pricing. They might even work out a deal with you on the financial end if that $160 is too much.

                Also that $120/month means that I get 4 days a week of 2 hour instruction as well as an open mat to train on for 5 (sometimes 6) days out of a week.

                  Did you know that judo is effective, cheap and widely available? It also teaches some of the same skills as bjj and also a lot of the skills you're gonna want but probably won't get from bjj.

                          Where I train it costs 60 euro per month (classes every day, sometimes twice a day) or 150 euro per 3 months. All clases are led by BJJ black belt. You can also train boxing and muay thai, but you must pay extra for it; I'm not sure how much, but I think it's 100 euro per month (BJJ+boxing+muay thai)

                            I pay $225 for six months of judo. That would buy at most 2 months of bjj in this town.
