Re: Training frequency?

In my opinion the number of weekly practices matters less than the dedication and attention you put into each class. I have seen some practicing steadily 2 or 3 times a week for years without improving much, and I have myself mannaged to improve through times with only one weekly practice.

Basically what you put in you'll get out.....

That said one weekly practice is not a good strategy in the long run. I would settle for 2-4 practices each week based on what is possible for you, and the add a small handfull of seminars ranging from 2 to 7 days with 2-3 practices each day. Of course you could also go for the big '10 practices a week strategy' - but that is only possible if your life permits it. It's all a question of creating a good ballance in your life. Aikido should be a wonderful addition to your life and not a heavy burden
