How We Find the Best Gyms: Methodology

Defining the true “best” Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gym is an unrealistic goal. Instead, we do our research to find the best gyms that can serve a wide variety of people. Some people want to find a gym for themselves or their children, some people want to train BJJ and other martial arts or some people want to try it without much of a commitment. Some gyms are even more women-friendly than others. The most important part of finding a BJJ or any martial arts gym is to find one that fits your needs, but also promotes a positive learning culture. This resource is to help make your search easier.

FAQ

The average cost of BJJ in Baltimore will be between $150 and $250 per month. The total price depends on the gym you are attending and whether you are taking other martial arts at that gym. Some schools offer short term contracts or are month to month so there are no long term commitments.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is generally safe when proper precaution is taken. Those with existing medical issues should speak to their doctor before taking BJJ which can put strain on many different parts of the body.
You don’t need much to get started with Jiu Jitsu. The gym you are attending should have a starter Gi to loan you before buying your own. If you are attending a no-gi class, a spandex shirt with shorts will be good enough to get you through your first class.
