All memberships require registration and all membership tuitions automatically renew at the same rate with payment due by the start of each time period. To make any downgrades to membership status, two weeks written notice is required. Re-establishing membership will likely require a re-registration cost.

All membership price quotes are for "cash amounts." Credit card checkout recoupment fee of 2.9% may apply. Payments may be made with cash, credit or debit cards, or PayPal. We can no longer accept checks.

Membership is for a set length of time. A monthly membership consists of essentially paying for 3 weeks and getting 1 week "free" each month. Attendance is the responsibility of the member. There are only a set number of membership spots available, and each member is considered to be reserving a spot for themselves. If a member misses a class during a week, they may attend another of the same type of class that week as a "makeup." Absences are not credited or refunded. If there is a significant health problem, membership can be paused.

We have the high honor of being an official Relson Gracie Association! Our head instructor, Greg Bartman, is a direct student of Relson Gracie, son of Helio Gracie. Greg earned his Black Belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu from Relson himself. Therefore all Bartman MMA & Self-Defense Jiu-Jitsu students are part of the direct official lineage from Helio Gracie and Relson Gracie. Thus all our student's ranks are recognized and honored around the world!

We have the privilege of hosting Relson Gracie when he visits, and learning Self-Defense and Jiu-Jitsu straight from the purest source. As such, our members join the Relson Gracie Training Association and renew annually to be a part of this great and rare opportunity.

Required Association dues are paid to Relson Gracie in exchange for his unique knowledge, technical assistance, and official rank recognition. We are very proud to say that our Association Membership allows our students to be personally trained in Relson Gracie's highly acclaimed system and become part of a worldwide community! Members are welcomed as family at every Relson Gracie Association across the globe. When our members travel, they are regularly granted a free training session and loaner uniform at other Relson Gracie affiliated academies.

Mandatory dues per calendar year are as follows:

Co-Ed Jiu-Jitsu: 57
Kick Ass Class only: 28
Kids Jiu-Jitsu: 28

Association dues are to be paid before the 3rd month of student membership.
