    165 per month

    You can't think about cost if you dont also think about value. Would I pay $165 bucks a month for martial arts lessons? I don't know. Would I pay $165 for my life to be enriched? Definitely. Jiu Jitsu has increased my confidence, decreased my body weight, and increased the length of my life. My buddies that I have met doing Jiu Jitsu are my friends for life. My wife is friends with their wives and gf's. What would you pay for a life style?
    Another way to think about the cost is the recategorization of your budget. True, I might pay $165 per month for Jiu Jitsu, but I go constantly. How many times have you thought about going to "happy hour"? But, you headed to Jiu Jitsu. If that happens 4 times a month you have saved yourself money.
    Don't get caught up with cost if you havent evaluated value.

    He is right. I know Ryan and he is an excellent instructor. If you don't mind driving to HB then you can train where I do at Todd Medina's gym. If staying inthe southbay area is better, then I would definently train with Ryan. Good luck. :D

    The gym is located in the MetRx gym off of 17th st and Newport Ave. It is called the fight school. I am there a few nights a week. Come on in and get a work out in. I teach the stand up (Thai-boxing) and Todd teaches the ground fighting. I am there almost every Monday for sure. Stop on in.

    If you choose to stay in the southbay area then Ryan is awesome on the ground. He is a great person and a excellent instructor. Kibun holds alot of respect for Ryan.

    Im on the east coast and only pay 95 a month for BJJ, judo, karate, and MMA classes........I get so much out of the classes I'd pay 95 a class!

    It's worth it, especially if your gonna be training under a Gracie.

    I guess then all my choices are going to be expensive because the only academies I can go too are: Gracie Academy in Torrance, Rickson Gracie Academy, Jean Jacques Machado academy, and Rigan Machado. no of them are cheap:(
