    I want to take an in depth look at this.
    Some things to post with your answer.

    1st obvioulsly how much the gym you attend costs.
    2nd where is the gym located ( California will probably be more expensive than Montanna)

    3rd Level of your instructor- If your instructor is a Gracie it might be more than a blue belt instructor (common sense)

    4th- Is your gym strictly BJJ? Some gyms do MMA on a couple days or kickboxing and BJJ every other day.

    5th How many classes do you get? If you are taking 8 classes a month it probably will be a lot less than a person who has unlimited BJJ, Judo, MT, MMA, conditioning etc.

    6. Please contribute any factors that you may feel are relevant to know. Maybe the cost is cheap because it just opened a month ago, or it is a very tiny wearhouse that the owner owns which makes it cheap, Or the contrary, it is 10,000 sq. ft, full of UFC fighters, and has 3 mma cages and 4 rings which is why it cost so much etc.

    Thank you all for your input. :icon_lol:

    99/month, phx az
    Open 7 days/ week, classes in morning and evening during weekdays.
    Offers bjj, judo & mma. (Xfit is in the building but for additional cost)
    3 black belt teachers (2 relson 1 machado, and some really good browns and purples teach am classes)
    Very big mat, biggest in az.

    There's a couple other places in the same price range and with solid instruction that's much closer to me, but its home, worth the drive.

    3. Main instructor is purple, but there is a black who teaches also.

    5. unlimited classes

    6. The $120 was discount offer when the gym first opened. Probably $150 or $160 now. This includes the opportunity to take train at two other gyms that are owned by the same guy. They are all within about 30-40 mile radius.

    1st obvioulsly how much the gym you attend costs. - I pay $185 a month

    2nd where is the gym located - Atlanta

    3rd Level of your instructor- 7th Degree Red/Black Belt (Romero Jacare Cavalcanti) + Lucas Lepri

    4th- Is your gym strictly BJJ? Some gyms do MMA on a couple days or kickboxing and BJJ every other day. - Mainly BJJ, they offer cardio kickboxing too.

    5th How many classes do you get? Unlimited...with up to 5 classes a day if you are really hardcore.

    6. It's expensive but I feel like I get my money's worth out of it with world class instruction and amazing training partners.

    classes 6 days a week. 3 black belts and a brown alternate
    Just BJJ

    I pay 60 bucks a month.

    Located in Kentucky

    The head instructor is a Black Belt under Carlson Gracie Jr.

    They have jiu jitsu, no-gi/submission wrestling, boxing, muay thai, and mma. I think thats all.

    I get unlimited access but I get my membership at a discount. When I started there in 06 I think a full membership was 100 a month for unlimited and then like 70 if you wanted to do just jiu-jitsu or something like that.

    1. FREEEEEEEEE

    2. Moscow, ID

    3. my BJJ instructor is a purple belt with 2-3 years of sambo training, my judo instructor is a 2nd degree black belt

    4. We have gi and no-gi BJJ and judo.

    5. Open mat Sunday, no-gi Monday, judo Tuesday and Thursday, and gi BJJ Wednesday, each class two hours plus one hour long kids' judo classes on Tues/Thurs.

    6. My club is in a smallish college town (~15,000 university students + everyone else that lives in the town, so maybe 30,000 people total) and is the only place in town to train BJJ or judo.

    It's totally free and anyone can join. We meet at the local junior high school in their mat room, which we pay nothing to use whatsoever. It's a pretty sweet setup, in my opinion. It's not uncommon for us to have 20ish people on the mats at once, which I think is a good size for the area and given our complete lack of advertising aside of word of mouth.
