What do you guys think about studying a martial art at the local YMCA, community college, or rec center for someone new to the martial art?
Might be an affordable way for some people to get a taste of the martial art.
What are some of the pros and cons?
Cheap and affordable.
Know any other cheap alternatives for the beginner? Garage dojos? Parks?
My taiji instructor; over 50 years in taijiquan, and a student of Tung Ying Chieh, teaches as a community center.
Heck the first few times Chen Zhenglei held seminars in my area it was at a community center
I know of a very good (Japanese) Judo teacher that has a rather impressive lineage that teaches at a local YMCA
The location does not matter, the teacher does.
