I have to disagree strongly here. Aside from taking a few lessons in each to get the feel and understand where you want to be - it is a big mistake for a beginner to do this. You'll end up being confused and annoying your teachers.

Later on dojo visits and seminars are all part of the progression but save yourself a serious headache and become a beginner in only one dojo.

How about training at both clubs. It will be a bit confusing at the start as, Sensei X will explain techniques differently to Sensei Y & you will wonder which is the correct way. Once you realise that both are correct (I.E they are just variations of the same technique) you'll reap the benefits of having two different prospectives/explainations.
