"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."
