Long story short, I decided to stop being a fat ass and get into shape. Once my back gets in better (4 car accidents + already health = GGPO) I'm going to venture around the Metroplex for a second home. How much are you guys paying per months at your academies? Carlos Machado has an academy 25 minutes away from me and if I remember correctly he charges $150/month for unlimited mat time. Travis Lutter's academy isn't willing to disclose an actual amount on the website/telephone but I know that it will be a higher premium thanks to the name and will supposedly be locked into a contract six months at a time. Allen Mohler is one of the two BJJ BBs I know of (besides Buddy Clinton) where their lineage isn't from Carlos Machado (he has the most BBs in the area that teach) but instead he got his from Jacare of Alliance BJJ. He charges $140 a month for unlimited BJJ. I know that the style depends on the instructor, but how much of a difference will I see in Machado lineage versus Gracie lineage? As of right now I'm leaning towards Carlos Machado's academy since it's in a nice area and I'm already in that area most of the time. If any of you guys went to the Machado Open a few months back, his academy is ~1 mile away. Thanks in advance.
