Re: How much training per week?
Mike Sigman - Really enjoyed your post and will ponder that for a while tonight at work I'm sure.
Presently due to my work schedule seriously conflicting with my training schedule I get 2 hours a week to train in the dojo, 1 hour on Tuesday morning and 1 hour on Thursday morning.
This isn't nearly enough to keep me satisfied;
When I worked days and had my nights free I trained a minimum of 5 hours every week in the dojo and often times as many as 7-9 hours in the dojo.
I also do practice at home with weapons and my wife is gracious enough to allow me to use her to practice basic technique on as well.
