After being out of martial arts for about 4 years, and having absolutely zero desire to go back to another Tae Kwon Do class, I started looking for something other than stand up striking. There's a Karate school that offers Jiu Jitsu 2 nights a week, 90 minute classes each night. I went there this evening to observe a class and meet the instructor. The class is smallish (8 or 9 people) and ages range from one 14 year old to one guy I'd guess in his late 30's. The instructor was a nice guy and seemed knowledgable and efficient in his teaching. And he offered to let me come take a free class if I like before I commit to anything. Cost: $110 a month. Is this steep, average, or below average? My Tae Kwon Do classes were $45 a month, but that was with a discount to the fitness center the classes were held in. This place teaches Ishin-Ryu as well, and is in a strip mall. The facilities were nice, the mats looked clean, all the equipment looks new and top notch. There's not much to choose from around here in the way of any grappling/MMA style arts. Just about every "karate" school is another McDojo catering to suburbanite moms looking for another activity for their kids to join. This one's Karate classes also looked like that, and almost had me leave, but the JJ classes weren't at all like that. The other schools out here are Joey Ancona's gym and Gold Dragon Shin-Jitsu. I know Joey through some of my wife's friends, and really don't want to give him any money. Gold Dragon is WAY out of the way for me to train at regularly. So other than the money, this looks like it's probably the best choice all-around for me. I'm just wondering if the pricing is in line for what I'd be learning.
