And you don't have to train in the gi. Most places offer a nogi class. I prefer nogi as well but nobody at my gym pays a belt fee.
Well Gracie Barra is mandatory even if they don't train in the Gi all the time. They WILL make you buy the belts for a ridiculous price even if u don't train in the Gi. That's how they profit.

That's when I realized it really is a full time job for fighters. One of the instructors asked me to come back...probably will within a year once I achieve my designated weight gain.

Anyways the instructors are koo if you talk to them about working out a discounted pay; student pricing or in Old Fan's case a senior rate...lolz! I helped market their studio and got complimentary passes. Of course I had to pay for all the gear. It's all about being resourceful.

When I was a kid my parents couldn't really afford paying for things so I had to work on the side and that's life kid. If you're going to spend that much you'd better train your ass off! Good luck and we'll see you in TUF in about five years.
Yea of course. I work my ass off when i train. But i can only train for a short amount of time because my mom has to wait until i finish. She's exhausted but still drives me to my gym after she comes from work and has no time to rest. I feel really bad for her but it's because I have no ride.

I'm just thinking about doing BJJ only and just practice hitting the punching there.

What happened at Legends? A friend of mine goes there every month, he knows Eddie personally and I haven't heard him say anything....

Honestly I know I've said this before, but making your mom take you to the gym everyday and sit and wait for you is bullshit. You want to be an adult and train like a pro-fighter it's time to get a bike or walk or the bus if you can afford that. I did it everyday when I was in school and if your parents can't afford it find a job that will pay cash. All of your posts seem to include something about other people being the ones that restrict you. You seem like you really want it as long as it's someone else's bill.

U keep talking like I'm the lazy bad guy that doesn't do shit or anything supportive. My mom won't allow me to take the bus and I already stated that I'm a minor so you want me to get caught up in curfew? I already told my parents I'll look for a job and i got bitched at and they told me to focus on my studies and they'll support me.

A new location again!?!?! What happened now?

I guess we just have a huge difference in opinion on this whole thing.

Landowner kicked them out and 10th planet HQ and Eddie went to Burbank and they'll be back during fall with a location near beverly hills/ hollywood area. Legends is trying to find a location between hollywood, glendale, downtown, or la cienaga and pico. They pretty much separated so I need to find a new MMA Gym. They froze my membership so i have 2 weeks of training credit left when Legends finds a new location and then i'll quit after that because it costs too much. So I'm thinking of doing Wrestling/JJ at 10th planet West LA and Muay Thai at PKG, but it depends on how much the Muay Thai cost there. If it's too expensive, then i'll probably just stay at 10th planet West LA
