Re: Training Frequency
An idealized benchmark: I've read of Okinawan karate-ka training two hours a day, 14 hours a week, after working full days in their farms.
A more realistic target for me is about 7 hours a week, but when I used to compete, as a young man, I trained 20 hours a week and I still wasn't very good, but almost always made to semi-finals, at least.
Shaolin Temple "professional" martial monks train six to eight hours per day, everyday, but not sure how much time was also devoted to cultivating ch'an (samadhi meditation).
