Practicing in 2 Dojos?
 
What do you think about practicing in 2 Dojos guys?
Im just concern leaving my first dojo where I started...I dont like to hurt them or sort of cause any issues -- when I seem to likely transfer to a new dojo which I find better ....

Ideas are appreciated so I can transfer smoothly...
=)

Depends on the wishes of your two instructors. Some would take offense, others would encourage it. If styles are much different, it could get confusing, as well. Opinions will run the gamut.

Yeah..this is what Im really concern now..bec the other new dojo has modifications on the techniques ..and I find them better and so effective....plus I can sense the great involvement of instructors to their students...

It's little sad. But I guess I have to just move on and learn BUDO and of course the techniques in the best way I find it.

Really, your path is entirely up to you. Accepting the consequences is also up to you. Good luck. In gassho.

I think you should tell your dojo and just be honest but not too honest. I wouldn't say anything like that the new dojo is better or anything because that only pricks up the hairs on men. We had someone leave our dojo to go across town and train. A bunch of us took offense to it but only really because we were bummed he left and he didn' say anything to us 'til after he had left. It really isn't a big deal but when you train with a certain group of people for a while it's just a respect thing. This only my opinion so take it for what it is an good luck.

You can't have two masters.

I was always told that training in two separate schools was not acceptable by my Shihan.

I asked to do this once and was told that either pick the other one or stay where I am but don't do both because people contradict each other and he does not want to hear about it.

Also I believe it is kind of an insult.

So pick the one thats best for you.
Besides why pay for both?

Just make sure the new one is what you relly want.

Good luck.

Josephine, kumusta kabayan?
How long have you been practicing? What makes the second dojo "better" than the first?
Mabuhay!

Hi Cito! I started few yrs back around yr 2000 i think...but i stopped unfortunately for some busy work at school... And i decided to come back to the mat earlier this year ... =)

Both dojos are very good. I mentioned above that the new dojo though has modified techniques and involvement of instructors are also good... honest way of saying it, the new dojo makes the practices jst little more personalized to whatever level you are in.

I am not saying I don't have fun with the first dojo -- I owe it to them my first techniques...and I still pay respect to all my dojo-mates especially my Senseis. =)

Hope I can transition smoothly soon. :p

Thanks all for your inputs.

=)

Actually that works only where mom and dad get along.

"You can't have two masters."

Unless you're a dog I don't recommend having one. Teacher, mentor, guide, yes - master no. We're not in Star Wars either.

Oh course some of this issue is just a matter of language - personally the word rings of collars to me. Agree with teh basic point, "God and Mammon" and all that.

You're going to find pros and cons for each case. Arguments FOR staying with your old school, for going to the new school and for going to both.

In the end it's your time, your money and your aikido.

I agree with Andrew Mendes. Training in two different schools won't double your learning rate or something.

Also, who calls their Sensei their "master"?

That is why I don't have masters. I have teachers. You can always have more teachers.

Josephine tanong lang :)

sa Pilipinas ba ang lilipatan mong dojo? or are you abroad?

Because I've trained in 3 different dojos and under 4 different sensei (because I moved a lot Quezon City > Mandaluyong > alabang) Anyway I think most Filipino schools would view this from a business standpiont and just take it as a normal transfer. but of course, add the respect part hehehe

btw where are you transferring to? would it be the _____ dojo in cubao? just asking :)

Re: Practicing in 2 Dojos?

Hope there was better way out of this. Hehe
Guess not.
