How much should a Jiu Jitsu class cost?
Regardless of what you choose, you should expect to pay between $100 and $200 per month for jiu jitsu classes. There will of course be exceptions to that pricing, but for the most part it is rare to find a school who charges less than $100 per month or more than $200 a month for just jiu jitsu.
Why are Jiu Jitsu schools so expensive?
So, why is BJJ so expensive? Jiu Jitsu gym memberships and classes can be considerably more expensive than some traditional gyms. This is because you’re not paying to get fit or in shape, you’re paying to learn a skill that’s taught by a qualified instructor EVERY class you attend.
How do you know if a Jiu Jitsu school is legit?
If the instructor is a first degree black belt or above, you may also be able to find her on sites like Rate My BJJ Instructor or BJJ Tree. If she shows up on either of these two sites, she’s probably legit. And if she shows up on BJJ Heroes, the instructor is definitely legit.
Is jiu jitsu worth the cost?
Jiu-jitsu is quite expensive. The cost of doing jiu-jitsu is deemed worth it by those of us who train day by day, and if someone is using cost as an excuse not to train, offer them a list of the benefits of training and ask them what other hobby provides those benefits. Chances are, those options are highly limited.
How long does it take to become good at jiu jitsu?
Getting good at Jiu Jitsu is something that can take 6 to 10 years or so to accomplish. This won’t necessarily get you a black belt in BJJ, unless you’re putting in the work, being consistent, and competing regularly during that time. Still, it should get you a purple or brown belt if you’re diligent.
What’s better Judo or Jiu-Jitsu?
Almost all of the most common submissions in BJJ derive from Katame-Waza, but most Judo schools may dedicate less than 20% of class time to those techniques. Thus, if you want to improve your ground game, then BJJ is for you. If you want to learn how to hit people with the Earth from standing, then it’s Judo.
How much are kids Jiu-Jitsu classes?
