    Which Martial Arts have cheap prices?

    Which styles tend to have cheaper prices(compared to other MA) for classes?

    I want to take a MMA class but if I can't find one that has a price compatible with my income I'd have to settle with something else for the time being.

    Muay Thai, quite often. BJJ almost always, more often than not BJJ schools have rates upwards to $100 & even $120 a month.
    There's a local group to me that is the cheapest I've ever seen at $70/month, run by purple & brown belts under Pedro Carvalho. I hope to work around my Judo schedule and do some BJJ with them twice a week maybe.

    agreed. I pay $360 a YEAR for judo and $88 for boxing which gives me 4 classes a week each with full access to a gym. The classes are taught by qualificed coaches with one them being an ex-Olympian (that would be judo).

    Again, its not that muay thai and bjj are not efficient, but for example, the gym over the road charges $140 a month which is a little more than I can afford....

    99% of BJJ clubs are run as businesses for profit. 99% of Judo clubs are run as not for profit and invest all their cash in keeping the club going.

    Hence why Judo is universally cheap in comparison to BJJ.
