Had My First BJJ/Grappling Class Today!

So this morning I had my first BJJ/Grappling class. I was a little nervous because of my hair, which is long, and my size, I'm 5'8" at about 135 pounds.(I'm a smaller guy)

I had a great time. The class wasn't that big, 10 people and 2 of them weren't there today. About half the class were cops and the rest was a couple of girls. The trainer told me that this class was a little advanced, and I'd be on some more basic stuff on my next class. All the guys in that class were bigger than me, all between 5'10"-6'2" around 190-230 pounds. I thought it'd be much more difficult with people that much bigger than me, but I don't think I did to bad.

Quick question for all of you guys though. How much are your monthly payments and how often do you go?

i hope you know they wipe down the mats with crack and heroin.... that is why they always give the free trial lesson.

My gym is 42 a month, and has a grappling class, a rolling class, a striking class, a strength and conditioning class and 24hr access to the gym for members. You can spar whenever you want if you're a member, so they don't really have a sparring class.
