    This was one of the things that I was thinking about. I was thinking of either going to their houses/place of choice or using my mates garage which has some mats. A bit budget and cheap I know.

    Plus the 5 price is just a number off the top of my head.

    I haven't done any proper price checking but I think , most gyms would cost at least 50 to hire out a room with mats.

    I got some cheap-ish mats off of ebay a few years ago and I knew someone who got a stack of them from asking around schools.

    I would say do it in your garage (borrow your mates mats), for convenience sake. 5 is silly money. 10 is a reasonable minimum. Any less than that and they won't appreciate what they're paying for and you'll have to work a morning just to be able to take your girlfriend to the cinema and Mc Donalds afterwards.

    Remember you'll also need to get insurance. If someone you're teaching/rolling with suffers an injury then you'll probably have personal liability.

    A lot to think about for 5 quid an hour.

    I just want to echo that as long as you are honest and clear this with your instructor/coach then all the best. on the same note, why don't you discuss a mat-fee with your coach? you can charge 10 per hour (which is still very reasonable if not cheap) and pay your coach/academy owner half. That way, I think at least, you'd benefit from a professional mat and gym-insurance.

    of course, the first thing you need to do is discuss this with him/her.

    A waiver is just helpful if you get sued. Something you can show to prove the person knew there were risks. A person cannot waive their rights, no matter what they sign.

    I trained in trad JJ for ten years and whilst I have now left that to dedicate myself only to BJJ, I have been going back couple times a year to teach BJJ.
    I'm not a BJJ instructor but it is great fun running your own session and getting newbies to see the beauty of our sport.
    Good luck!
