"Maybe it is my disdain for structure, but I would count my loss of time a much greater loss than the fees.  I, personally, thrive by learning things myself, and benefit greatly from taking on a task outside of the structure of a classroom.…"

I am a person that you might consider "book smart." Recently I've had this desire to learn a trade or skill that is not for the office environment. I want to learn something using my hands but the problem is I never was a handyman/car/construction guy. I graduated with a history/economics degree and a teaching certificate and now I work in an office 9-5 where I'm always on the computer. I love my job but want to learn a blue collar skill.I am considering doing either welding or pipe fitting.…See More

"Finding martial arts for cheap is tough. I was part of Renzo Gracie for awhile, but it was pretty costly if I remember correctly. Well, maybe $600 every 6 months isn't all that bad, but the YMCA is cheaper than that, and have plenty of classes."

"Shop around. I was able to take a community college course for free, a benefit of being an adjunct for 10 years. I took fencing. Then I found a fencing club where I pay about $15 a week. There are bargains out there."
