    I am thinking about finally starting to train BJJ, unfortunately I think my gym may be very overpriced, and wanted to see what the average person pays to take the same classes I would be taking.


    The place closest to my home, about 20 minutes away, is 125 a month. Classes are 2 hours Monday through Friday with an hour and a half open mat on Saturdays.

    From what I understand that's quite decent for a US gym. Is the instructor black belt?

    LOL, you're absolutely lucky to be able to go there. Terrell's one of Caesar Gracie's top students, and I've heard he's an amazing grappler and instructor.

    $200 / month for my entire family which includes:

    1 gymnastics class per week for both of my kids
    2 karate classes per week for both of my kids
    2 No-Gi classes per week for all 4 of us
    2 Gi BJJ classes per week for all 4 of us
    2 kick boxing classes per week for all 4 of us
    1 wrestling class per week for all 4 of us

    It should cost more, but since our whole family trains there and we train in so many different classes, he basically capped us off at $200 for everything even though we insisted on paying more to be fair to him.

    I found there is a Gracie Barra about 30-40 minutes from my house too. Lead instructor is Aparecido Faria Bill. Unfortunately I see nothing on pricing on the website, and they are closed on Sundays. Also the starting program is only 2 days a week for 4 months and I think only with fellow white belts.

    Myself: $200 for 3 months of training, and there is training 7 days a week, damn near 365 days a year (a few guys came out for training on Xmas last year!)

    But depending on where your located, and the number of (as well as quality of instructors) 125/month is not a bad price at all
    Also depending on where you are located, rent could be super high. Your instructor has to make a living, so if commercial rent is quite expensive, club fees will be higher as compared to other areas/cities where commerical rent is a lot lower...

    $20 a month. Judo class Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 7p-9p, Boxing Wednesdays 5p-7p, grappling Fridays 5p-7p and MMA Saturdays 11a-2p.

    Lots of free time to go and train whatever you want, but those are the scheduled classes. Mats are open any timer an instructor is present.
