    I've located another one that only charges 186 US Dollar


    Both are fighting gyms with competitors.

    Why are the prices so different? And what do you, the reader, pay to box or kickbox/thai box?

    Circumstances are different. Rent in one may be far lower, space might be smaller, they might have more customers, less staff, etc.

    $185 / year seems really low, though. Works out to what, a little over $15 / month? Not sure how they're making any money on that.

    Boxing gyms that cheap open their doors, turn on a round timer and leave it at that. No classes, no instruction. Place probably aint the cleanest and the gear is beat up and worn out. If there are any trainers hanging around they’re not helping you unless you’re paying for their time.

    They offer either "mixed group/general boxing" . Or "advanced group and competitors etc.,

    No beginner groups as such. Does that mean a lot of time on your own?

    Also 3 hour sessions! That probably means I can arrive whenever I want within this time frame, which is perfect for a undergraduate student with irregular schedules.

    $100 or more per month seems to be the standard here in LA for no contract...some gyms are $200 or more.

    This is combat sports in general, not boxing. You can get it cheaper per month on a contract.

    Drop in fees for one session seem to be $20-$30 now.

    This is Europe I'm talking about. 464 dollars for 12 months is an insane amount. It's not even a prestigous gym. Sure the coach has had a famous national boxer but nobody on the street knows the instructor by name. Karate classes are 276 dollars per year, though that excludes grading, belts, which costs too.

    thats sort of the old school way and can still work, but I’m a fan of having a structured schedule and training system. Technique classes and fight team built on the foundation of organized bag classes

    The muay thai is with a different club. They train out of a hall. Pretty basic set up but they have trained some great local fighters

    Really all you need is a space and bodies for work.

    My new gym's small as well, no heavybags, but I have one at the local chain gym so it works out.

    But hey, its hard to beat free
