Re: training at multiple dojos?

what do you feel about the issues of loyalty to one teacher/dojo affecting one's training?

note here i'm not talking about irregular visits, dojo hopping, or seminars, but a situation where you attend everyday classes at more than one dojo regularly for the indefinite future.

I trained at two different dojos a few years ago and I personally found it confusing. I have seen one person who was doing this and he made the mistake of trying to do another style in the wrong dojo. Nobody much appreciated it.

Unless you make double-dog sure both instructors of the different dojos give you a big thumbs-up I would not do it, myself. At least until I had a shodan in one style.

As you know, depending on your instructor, there can be other issues to consider: money, professional jealousy, etc. good luck.
