I love the sport and MMA myself but I know a lot more people that would come could they afford it.
If you want to do BJJ in Brum but can't afford the 60 -90 monthly fee or 12 pay as you go fee then join a judo club.

Birmingham has loads of strong clubs and you can usually train for 2.50 to 5 per session.

The following have the larger adult classes:

Erdington

North Birmingham

Samurai (Kidderminster)

Wolverhampton
http://www.wolverhampton-judo-club.org.uk/

World BJJ Champ Carlos Lemos (when in the UK) used to train at Erdington, and North Birmingham is still frequented by Roleta affiliated BJJ black belts. Both have quality ne-waza randori (ground sparring).
