    How much do you pay for MA classes/membership?

    I am interested in seeing the rates, and I wonder if "McDojos" will charge higher/much lower than average.

    The MT gym near me charges $99 a month for unlimited classes. There are 6 MT classes a week (MT beginner and MT mixed are what I'd take). I heard this is about average, but unfortunately, it's still very pricey for me (working student). I'm hoping there's a cheaper, reliable MA center nearby, so I want input on how much you all pay.

    My friend takes MT from a personal trainer, but I think his rates might actually be cheaper than 99/mo. Then again, that friend of mine is very rich so he might not even care about the cost and the trainer could be ridiculously expensive.

    73 a month for as many classes as I want plus some private lessons from time to time.

    The classes a week include 2 classes on kickboxing/free sparring/conditioning, 2 classes on form work, and 2 classes which are mixed.

    I paid for one year at my gym and that was $800, so it equates to roughly 66.00 bucks a month for unlimited classes.

    $40 per month Canadian for 3 classes per week. Classes are 2 hrs long with one hour afterwards that you can use for whatever you want (practicing forms, sparring, etc). Don't think this guy is in it for profit..

    Typically you will likely find boxing gyms and judo schools in your area are your cheapest bets. While some variance occurs according to geography, $50-$100 is not uncommon or unreasonable for quality instruction.

    I would, however, make sure you look for any hidden "costs" (equipment, membership dues, belt fees, etc) and note the effect on your overall budget. For instance some arts cost maybe $50 a month directly, but over the course of the year you spend another $50-$400 on belts, sparring gear, etc, making the monthly fee more like $52-$80. You also may be able to work out some alternative, creative arrangements for payments and barter in some situations.
