Re: I need advice (opinions)
I am big believer in cross training, but I think there would be a very clear conflict in your situation. You could supplement with another martial art if that is something that interests you. As for getting students and/or sensei to show up early...unfortunately others don't have the same committment or are willing to go at it. The training fees are just part of the contract, so it is not an issue. If you can afford it, go for it, if not, don't bother. I love to train as well, but I give 100% for the full training time and am usually satisfied. If I'm not..."I'll gice 110& next class. Quality,not quantity.
