Is this a rip off?

I learn 10th planet Jiu Jitsu under Scott eistein epstein (Chuck liddells former trainer and one of the best in the 10th planet system) It's $125 a month for unlimited. The schedule: Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday = technique 2 hours (1 hour technique, 1 hour rolling). Thursday cardio training (30 mins endurance training, 30 mins rolling). Sunday = Wrestling for 1 hour. Is this deal worth it? People at another forum says its a rip off and they get MMA training for $80 or something. If i learn Muay Thai from another gym (I'm thinking about PKG MMA) then it might be around $100-$125 which in total = $225-250, but I might not do it because my parents are struggling with money (I'm a minor, can't get a job.)

Sounds a lot, find a place that does your BJJ, you Muay Thai, your Wrestling all under one roof. You'll find the cost considerably lower.

Well i was training at Legends $275 a month for unlimited wrestling, muay thai and jiu jitsu but some problem happened so they split apart. The only MMA gym near my home is PKG and MMA fighters like Dan Hardy and others trained there and i have yet to check it out. It's a pretty small gym but I don't know what the prices are. Anyways I will go pay them a visit sometime soon but If their unlimited is over $250, then I won't do it. In september, 10th planet HQ will be coming back so i might pay them a visit but the price is gonna be $130 for 6 month contract or $200 month to month. It might even rise, who knows? Im really confused right now. My 1 week trial of 10th planet west LA is done so i have to pay $125 by this upcoming monday if i want to continue. Do you think i should visit PKG before i pay? I prefer 10th planet though for Jiu Jitsu and wrestling

Any up-and-coming gyms at a more reasonable price in your area? i.e. gyms that aren't big-name facilities where the stars go? or have famous coaches/names to them?

Nope. Here's my address : 410 hauser blvd (not full address) 90036. Look it up on yelp and see for yourself if there's any good MMA gyms around. I've looked all over yet I only found Legends and PKG. Also here's another issue. During the 2nd week of this month, the landowner filed a complaint and Legends had to move their location (still searching for one)my membership paused so when they find a location, I'll have 2 weeks of training left and then i'll quit for sure because it's too expensive. But right now I have to pick between PKG (unlimited mma) or PKG Muay Thai and 10th planet jiu jitsu(wrestling as well). However if i do pick 10th planet and i find out later that the unlimited MMA was cheaper, then idk what to do. I know this sounds really complicating (it is for me too) but please try to understand

I am paying $125/month right now to train at Gracie Barra and I get BJJ, nogi and MMA classes. They are open Monday through Saturday. I can also go to the other gyms in the area that offer Muay Thai and whatever else. They also gave me a shirt for nogi and a gi for BJJ class.

When I trained at American Top Team it was $125 and I got BJJ, nogi and Muay Thai training but it would have been another 10 or 20 per month to add MMA.

I don't like training in the Gi though. Also I don't think they have any good professional fighters that teach there. Not only that, you have to pay for the belt fee which is kinda ridiculous

That's standard pricing for most MMA gyms. It's hefty for sure so I wonder how most people can afford it. Havn't trained for about six months as I've been bulking up in the gym. Too difficult to work, train both BJJ and Muay and weight lift. Talked to a lot of peers and they agreed...it's taxing on the body and very time consuming. 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.

No decen professionals where? At your gym? They dont have to be professional fighters. The person who teaches bjj at my school is a world champion practioner but isnt a big professional fighter.

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.
