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.

Harmony does not mean that there are no conflicts,
for the dynamic spiral of existence embraces both extremes.
