    Just a quick question to anyone who trains at Gracie Barra in Montreal.

    What is the membership cost?

    Also what's parking on Peel like?

    How much is the official Gracie Gi?

    Bruno is awesome. I have been to a few of his seminars.

    Very good teacher, and a really good guy.

    I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to train with him full time if I had the chance.

    I took a free class at the school an dwas very impressed. The mat space is very small, but whatever. Bruno seemed like an excellent teacher as well as a super nice guy. I balked at the price when he told me the yearly fee; out of my range I think, and I'm not willing to sign up for something like that for a whole year. Even so its tempting, the more formal style of training, the curriculum, and the obvious skill of those there made the place very tempting. I might try it again in the future.

    Ah so you have to sign up for a year. I can't commit to that as I'm not sure I'll even be in mtl that long.

    jesus balls. ppl who can't commit for one year...
    we have a 5 year contract at my school, and it only comes along once in a while and it sells out FAST. bjj isn't that fun when ur a noob with >1 year experience, the more experience you get the more fun it is, and srsly, 1 year is an undercommitment.

    If you move the contract is generally breakable... just ask, I know ours is that way (and any other place I checked out).

    Some people aren't stationary... Some people are students, some people move around a lot for work, some people may only be in a city a few months and are hoping to find a place to train.

    It has nothing to do with the commitment itself, but the fact that people are not always in the same city for 12 months of the year...
