Price of BJJ classes

Hey,

I'm wanting to start BJJ or MMA classes and I was wondering what other people pay for their classes.
I live around Dayton Ohio, so one of the closest places is Jorge Gurgel's MMA Academy. They charge right at $100 a month for unlimited access to BJJ classes and $107 a month for MMA (BJJ, muay thai kickboxing, and american boxing). And that's with a 12 month contract. Is this a good price, or is it high?
One of the advantages of going there is that I get to see Jorge Gurgel, Rich Franklin, Dustin Hazelett, and Marcus Davis

Okay, I guess mine isn't really overpriced then. I'd love to do the complete MMA package, I might as well since it's only a few dollars more a month.

Seriously, just pay the extra 7 Bucks a month.

That isn't bad at all. I am paying $100 a month, with a 12 year term, for BJJ(Gi and No GI), Boxing and Kickboxing/Muay Thai.

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

I know, I'd be dumb not to. If the complete MMA package is $107, it seems that BJJ alone should be much cheaper than $100...it's kind of annoying since I can't really afford to spend $100 a month right now.

i'm paying 80 (12 month plan) for unlimited classes in all disciples taught. Its a student price which is good and the ability to cross train is a real benefit.

I pay 149 a month for unlimited boxing, kickboxing, and jits. My place also has a gym. However, I regret choosing my school




What a stud
