    I searched some more, trying to find pricing on the local gym, and found some quick write-up some fat ass journalist did after training there for a day. He said "$150 per month for boxing lessons" for that school. I found that pretty high for someone catering to beginners and newbies for some Muay Thai classes. I wanted to avoid filling out a form just to get a quote, anso I guess I'll just give them a call. I didn't know what to expect.

    that's pretty spot on. I pay $120 a month at Drysdale's. The gym I'll be training at in Nor Cal is $165, but it's a more expensive area to live so the jump in price is no surprise.

    when I worked in Planet Hollywood, some co-workers of mine got to train at Wanderlai's gym for $80 cuz they got a casino workers discount. They said they got what they paid for. I haven't heard a lot of good things about Wanderlai's gym to be honest. sometimes you got to pay more for the quality of training.

    I'd be comfortable with a beginner's gym, getting to learn basic technique and getting into better shape. I've always wanted to try BJJ, but I don't have the capability to crouch or kneel, with my bad knees. I figured MT would be a good start, but if they're really looking for $150 to train, I might have to pass.


    I'd sooner buy a Nexersys. /s

    $120 for Drysdale's sounds awesome.

    Haha, yeah. That shit is like $3,000. I'd sooner buy the Bas Action System, aka the BAS.

    Havent been able to roll the last week and a haof because i tweaked my knee. Biggest tournament in canada this weekend, 1500 competitors. Cant make fw so i am doing lw in gi and mw in no gi lol. No gi is 3 years and up experience wise so it is mostly purple belts and up which means knee bars and toe holds are legal! This is going to be awesome, speed and technique over strength.... also this will be my last roll for months because i need a bone graft on my shitty implant.

    So I got bronze in my division, pretty happy about that. DId the open weight and was playing my game perfectly when I went inverted and a rib popped. Finished the fight but it was pretty painful. Wasn't able to do the no gi expert division the next day though:(

    ouch! sorry to hear about your rib. I hurt mine in competition last year and couldn't continue on to gi. didn't have a good showing at the Vegas Open...lost by an advantage. every time I think about it it pisses me off cuz it was so bogus.

    The advantage was bogus? WE have a new tournament s5 that my buddy Riccardo is running later this month. IBJJF rules but no advantages and whoever comes up first on a double guard pull will be awarded 2 points. Two little tweaks that I think can help with the flow of a match.

    Went back today after a month off, rib is still sore so I just worked keeping distance and some guard stuff. No inverted yet though. Bunch of tournaments coming up that I need to be ready for.

    I've trained at various dojos.

    My first Jiu Jitsu training was at my college. I fell in love with The Gentle Art and have been hooked ever since.

    Took a break to go to college then went to Combat Submission Wrestling, owned by Sensie Eric Paulson. They're I studied Brazilian Jiu jitsu with a Catch Wrestling flair put into it and Muay Thai. The main reason I went there was to learn striking and science of 8 limbs seemed like the best form of striking to study.

    Sadly it closed down but then I came across College Park MMA. It was the best BJJ schooling I ever had. Just going there once a week helped my ground knowledge explode. In fact I liked it so much when CSW reopened I opted to stay in CPMMA. When I went back to CSW just to visit I practically out rolled everyone and my class mates marveled and my new found technical abilities. Best example: The most senior student always perplexed me with his guard game. The entire two years we rolled I was never able to pass it, barring him going for a sub and missing. Even then whenever I got a dominant position he would escape. When I rolled against him as a College Park alum I passed his guard easily, got to mount and he was trapped for the entire time.

    As usual I had to take a break to go to college and now that I'm in between classes I am giving Krav Maga a go. The main thing I like about it is the plethora of class times I can choose from and take. I am doing two to three a days depending on my work schedule. Been doing it since July and am prepping for the level two test in a couple months.

    Having a lot of class times is definitely a nice thing as long as it does not water down skill level in the classes. At my gym I notice a big difference in the skill level between day and night classes. You get the full time guys that do both but i find you get the killers that just get it that more often than not come to night class. I realize every school is different though.
