    Serra Jitsu?

    I have been wanting to start learning brazilian jiu jitsu for quite some time now. I have a wrestling background also. I was looking for some gyms in the nassau county area and i cldnt find any until i found Matt Serra's one which is 5 miles away. I was just curious on how much the average bjj gym is monthly? Does anyone know how much Matt's is?

    I believe Matt Serra charges $140 a month for 2 lessons per week and $180 per month for unlimited classes. For that price, I'd recommend you go to Thai Sport. They're a full MMA school with a cage (I think they actually have two full cages), a ring or two, jiu jitsu mats, weights and instructors for every aspect of fighting (wrestling, kickboxing, jiu jitsu). I think they're $176 per month.

    There's the Extreme gym which is a Gracie Barra school. I think they charge a ****load too. BJJ is disgustingly overpriced just about everywhere on the island. Expect to pay at least $140 or $150 a month. You should check out Judo Sports Inc. in Massapequa. Check out their Combat Judo program. It's two days a week, half stand up, half ground fighting, one of the guys trains under Matt Serra and they only charge about $75 a month for two classes per week.

    I never even thought about that. The prices I listed are from a year ago. He may have raised them since then.

    Serra is still 140 for the 2 per week...

    Storms of War, I live on LI in Deer Park. I used to train in Staten Island at Zenbu Ryu Jujutsu (http://www.zenbujujutsu.com/home.html). I want to find a great gym to train at closer to me. Is this Judo Sports - Combat Judo class a legit class that will challenge me with skills and cardio or is it geared more for a beginner?

    Do you guys think it is worth it for the jiu jitsu?
    I've always been interested in martial arts but never had the chance to do it. I do have a high school wrestling background though. I'm thinking about taking boxing at the gym i go to but i always favored grappling because of my short reach and the fact that i'm 5'6.

    How much do you guys normally pay for whatever martial arts you guys take?

    If you're looking for cardio, nothing beats boxing. Judo is decent but it's far from the best. It's more of a thinking man's game. You have to know when to execute which throw and when, so it's not very fast paced. On the ground, that will get your blood pumping a bit. It is definitely a legit class. There are about 5 black belts teaching the class. Right now, classes are very small. I don't think this class has been running too long to be honest, but the guys teaching are damn good. See for yourself-

    http://www.nationallyranked.com/inde...setSeason=2006

    Look for Mark Staniszewski. He's number two in the gi division, not sure about the no gi division though. He's extremely good though. I'm a white belt, there's another white belt, there's a yellow belt and then there's a female green belt. They aren't going to have you mop the floor with people and not help you to progress farther. The black belts would definitely help you. I'm terrible as I've only done 3 classes or so (I had to take the last month off) but they're great. They usually stay after too, so it's closer to 2 1/2 hours than 2 hours. Stop in and check out a trial class. Worst that happens is you don't like it.

    That's the Extreme gym or whatever the hell it's called

    http://www.thaisportusa.com/

    That's Thaisport. Apparantly they're a Miletich school. I didn't know that.

    The combat judo class teaches a lot of ground fighting, but you can check out Shoot fighting too if you want-

    http://www.shootfighting.com/schools_isfa.html
    Scroll down to NY (Obviously)
    Just a heads up, but any BJJ place on the island is going to rape you financially. It's disgusting to see how much these people can charge.

    Hmm so judo does have alot of groundwork? Compared to other grappling arts, how do you guys compare judos effectiveness with the others?
    I'm an ex highschool wrestler so grappling sort of appeals to me more. Besides, im not very well built for a striking art. I'm 5'5-5'6 so that leaves me with a short reach.

    Im about to see how much this gym by me is. It's sponsered by Mitech Fighing Systems. Full Contact MMA. It's the only one around where I live that would people would respect. Im hoping it's no where as expensive as that one. because 180 a month is just not gonna happen.
