Anyone do it/recommend it?

Been thinking about getting into it lately,
sent this bloke an email at Krav Maga Birmingham,
he's sent me one back with prices and stuff;
£20 induction program,
£45 membership for the first year,
and then I think you also have to pay;
£35 a month for once a week classes.

So is this too steep?
Worth it?

Cheers,

Joe.

Sounds like a money grabber... I wouldn't bother! Just learn jujitsu and kickboxing... it's basically the same.

For that price I would expect 3-4+ classes a week and still consider it steep, you're much better off trying either MMA or some kind of combination like boxing and Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai and Judo or something.

Yea, defo money grabbing there with different fees for everything.

Where I go kickboxing, it was a one off £20 to get insurance stuff sorted. Then £3.50 a session.

Cheers for the replies,
looks like they are ripping people off,
might try something else,
possibly muay thai,
or boxing,
what's MMA?

Sounds like a "McDojo"

Just in it for the money, then extra costs when you have to have gradings, club T-shirt and all the rest of it.

Be wary.

Where is the club you were looking at?

If you do have a look at MMA, then Stevie B's gym in Acock's Green area of Birmingham is a top club.
A lot of very switched on people train there in grappling, boxing, thai boxing etc and compete in uk mma events. (MMA - the stuff you see on UFC combining stand-up striking at all ranges with stand-up grappling and then submission grappling and striking on the floor.)

MMA is mixed martial arts, usually a mix of boxing, kickboxing, muay thai and groundwork in one place, it's great for self defence and fitness.

joe, if they're any good they'll let you have a look in on a lesson for free, or participate. if not, what are they hiding? but as has been said might as well fo tc, tried krav maga for a while it's just MMA without the no biting rules etc.
