    This is how classes at my school go:

    1.5 - 2 hrs total (4x a week, 8- twice a day if you wanna push yourself)

    15 mins hard warmup (jacks, crunches, pushups, sprawls, rolls, squats. .etc etc)
    30 mins of showing or practising techniques (2 per day, and they are related) and
    30mins - 1hr+ of rolling/switching partners..etc etc
    Whats great about the class is that this regime is very, very tiring , but the instructor always stays behind after the class ends and you can ask him to show you stuff to work on.. so theres not really a timelimit.

    30 mins of warm-up (running, pushups, jumping jacks, LOTS of sit ups)
    30-45 mins of showing or practicing techniques. (2-3 a day and are related, some arent)
    45 mins to an hour of rolling and switching partners

    it is 2 hours or over

    Well think about it, we work EVERY part of the BJJ game every day:
    Takedowns (Shark Bait is great because if you win 3-4 times then your tired so it forces you to learn how to do them even after your exhasuted)
    And then we work our ground game for an hour and a half, plus we do guard passing drills 15 mintues daily.

    Our class is like that, you can stay after for a good hour before the place closes. Although sparring winds me the fuck up at times it is where I feel I learn the most.
