Isn't the brighton club not new but, in fact, an old one? :roll:

Also your site seems to have exhausted itself already.

Is it just me that thinks £10 for an hour and a half session is a bit much?

Seems like a standard mechanism to persuade you to pay monthly.  At that monthly price, if you turn up to every session, it would be less than £2/session.

Both the clubs (one Kempo, one medieval fencing) that I train with operating something similar - although sadly neither trains 8 times per week.

But the price is the same if you can only (like many) only train once or twice a week..... In which case your still looking at about £8 a session for training twice a week not including holidays and down time (which would push the cost per session up again).

£810 a year...

two minds about this.  To be honest, £10 for an hour and half of any activity which you are being taught these days is pretty cheap.  Especially if you consider that hall/dojo rental can often run to £30-£50 for the session depending on venue which they have to pay, whether or not they get a full club training.  That is before the instructor takes a wage/salary.  I think most of us here are sometimes stuck in the "student" view of training where everything is as cheap as chips.  
What would be a good salary for a decent instructor?  I was paid £20 per hour to teach Jitsu back in 1990 by Loughborough University (which was £20 more than I have had before or since :) )

Most MA's in London cost around £8ph. TJF is cheaper than most; it's a selling point. £10 for 90 mins is not unreasonable, particularly if the instructor is doing it professionally. A Personal Trainer would cost you more.

When I started it was £1 per session which was theoretically two hours, but with JSJ teaching it was essentially till we got thrown out of the dojo :)

That sounds familiar... Getting kicked out by security guards happened with frequency. Then they'd have to wai while we put the mats away and showered.
