    I don't train, but I've looked into it. Depends on where you go; classes can be cheaper, if they're being taught by a local Brown/Black Belt, but are more expensive, if you're looking to go to a Gracie-Barra. Whereabouts in the UK are you?

    They generally range from $115 and up a month depending on where you live. The last place I trained was $150 a month, but they had daily classes and didnt limit you so thats a pretty good deal

    BJJ classes should cost $4.18 exactly per class.

    Reminds me of a Mark Rippitoe quote

    "Your ideal bodyweight as an ectomorph at 6' 0" will be 214.378 lbs. There. Happy? And if you lose or gain a pound, I will have you killed. It is important to be ideal.." - Rip

    Y'know your basement? Well right underneath that.
    http://www.lincoln-bjj.co.uk/ probably a good start

    When you're looking for a gym make sure you type in your city and country specifically, theres also some websites that help you locate martial arts schools:

    There's a reason why they don't usually give you the price over the phone...

    Coach rip is the best.

    Don't forget "a grown adult male weighs at least 200lbs."

    I pay $100 per month at an Mma gym which includes BJJ. Maybe not the best BJJ instruction, but good enough for me

    How long is a piece of string?

    It really depends where you train. The nicer the facilities and the more experienced the coaches, the more it's going to cost you.

    I pay $10 per class, or $20 per week for 3 Muay Thai classes, 2 MMA classes and 2 No Gi classes. Which is very cheap... because the facilities are very basic and the coaching isn't necessarily the best (we are without a bjj coach at the moment, for example). But I'm just some dude who does this shit for fun, so I don't need world class coaching or the best facilities. I just need a place to train, and my gym provides that.

    A lot of places offer a free class. Try a few out and then make your decision.

    Came here to say this. The lowest you are likely to pay for a decent school is 140 a month.
