What is a good/acceptable price for a BJJ noob for a JJ class?

I've gotten some of my friends to look into it, but I don't know if I'd be willing to commit to a year rate just yet.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

When I use to do BJJ it was 80 bucks a month. That also came with a membership to some shitty gym I never used. I already belong to a much nicer gym.

You beat me to it Jackass.. 80-120 is pretty normal now days because of the big happening as a trend. When I payed it was like 40-60 a month but hey that was 10 years ago hahaha.

by me it is $40 a month, or like $140 and a contract at Jorge Gurgel's school. Guess where I go?

all depends upon the quality of the school, the ratio of students to instructors, the notariety of the instructors, ect.

You should expect to pay between $80 to $130 per month. If you get in schools like Cesar Gracie you can expect to pay between $160 and $220 per month.

Are you looking to learn? Are you looking to get belts quickly? These are some of the decisions that might determine the school you attend.

makes sense.

i'm just lookin to start off moderately and see if it's something i'd actually want to continue.

i have a pretty solid amount of patience, but once i get going i'm sure i'd figure out a reasonable advancement plan.

most of my estimates are comin in at $80.

just sucks that the time i finally get the opportunity to get to do it, the UFC makes it so popular that you've gotta budget gas, groceries, and MMA.

I started at $70. Than my school got it up to $90 and now 120 with an option for extra classes. You can't blame them. They start low to get students, and when they do get students they bring it up.

You rockin the Nati? I use to go up to Jorge's gym when he was in Middletown but I haven't been since he moved off of 75 north and I moved from Hamilton to the west side of Cincinnati.

I pay $150 a month for unlimited classes. There is also a $100 rate but that limits you to only 8 classes a month. I try to get 16 classes in per month. that breaks down $9.37 per class which is pretty cheap. Plus there is a lot of open mat time that I get with that.

Great question/thread. I've been curious about this myself. Hope it pays off for a lot of you - I've always wondered if some progress quickly than others and if that's parallel to the amount of classes one takes per month.

I pay $95 a month for unlimited Jiu-Jitsu, striking, and Judo classes. We have good quality instructors, but our facilities aren't that great. We mainly have just mat space and Thai pads, punch mitts, etc. As we don't have many bags, most of our training is done through pad work and sparring.

Yeah I had to re-work my budget and prioritize a bit to swing the monthly bill ($100 for unlimited BJJ classes - not to mention the gas bill for driving 45 minutes out of town) - but in the end I think it's like anything else in that if you want to do it bad enough you find a way.
That being said, I do feel for some of my younger classmates who are trying to balance it with college tuition and rent all from shitty part-time job pay. Students do get a slight discount, but man...there is no way I could have pulled it off at that age.

yep expect to pay $80.00-$120.00 a month..remember its a business.

Gym space rent per month $600-1000
loan for mats,equipment etc.. $300-500
insurance, etc... $200-500
total $1,100-$2,000 per month for overhead costs

$100 per month per student
x 70 students
-------------------
$7,000 per month
-2,000 overhead
-----------------
$4,000 before taxes!!!!!
thats a way of thinking about it. How far will that get in you in your city??? not very far i assume.
