I wanted to hear your thoughts and experiences with this situation.
I have been training for 6 years at a Yuishinkai dojo and tested recently for shodan. However, for the past 1.5 years I have been training at a USAF dojo with a teacher I highly respect. This is due to my school location and class schedule completely conflicting with training at my home dojo (Yuishinkai).
I was taught to train in the style of the dojo you are visiting and have a "when in rome" philosophy out of respect to the visited dojo but when at home to do things "our way."
So the problem? I feel I'm really picking up the USAF style and now I feel like an alien in my dojo when I visit home. My technique and ukemi are different and I try to forget the new style while there but it is difficult.
I have loyalty and love for my home dojo and my wonderful sensei but also feel a big pull towards my awesome USAF sensei.
I am finding it can be mentally and physically challenging to train in two styles. I have almost 2 years of school left near the USAF dojo.
Eventually I need to choose. But when?
