I have a no-brainer situation here -

Club A - where I currently attend to is far away for me (30 minutes drive to and from), cost $180 per month, have 1 instructor (who is a top shape guy and ain't that bad as an instructor, but probably trained into this specific MA for maybe a year or two at most - although he trained in other MA for decades, and also he might be good at picking some things, but he's also lacking some good explanations upfront on how things have to be done), it has fairly limited options for classes - morning ones are available only on tuesday and thursday during the week and are fairly late (i have a fairly flexible working arrangement, but that particular time slot between 8am and 9am is very uncomfortable), and only 1 slot - 6.30-7.30 in the evening (which is also not very comfortable for me).

Club B - 15 minutes drive, cost $100 per month, 3 or 4 different instructors (so - even if there's some deficiency in one of them, others might pick it up and correct), multiple classes (some are reserved for more advanced students), non-MA related fitness options (body fit, boot camp, yoga, etc) - that I can supplement my training with and other MA classes too - boxing, muay thai, and just punching bag exercise classes (i guess it goes into the fitness category) - so I can find a class of interest for each day.

So, imho switching clubs is a no-brainer... Why do I feel bad about it? And how best I shall approach the subject with the Club A owner/instructor (who is really a good guy btw and is trying to build up his business).

Honesty is the best policy

Just tell him, the new club offers much more at a lower rate and is closer to home. Tell him you appreciate him but need to do what's best for you.
