Grr! Lateral Training

Question: Do any of you train in other martial arts in unison with your current style. If so does your dojo and its members know? And if so what is thier reaction? do they frown upon it or do they like that you train in another martial art.

I just moved dojos, so I don't train any other arts currently, but previously I did train Hakutsuru Karate. And yeah, since my dojo cho also taught the Hakutsuru classes, they all definitely knew about it. We have quite a few dojos in the organization that teach other forms of martial arts, I know of 2 Hakutsuru/Aikido dojos, 2 that do Arnis as well as Aikido, and 1 that also includes Tae Kwon Do classes. What they teach depends on the dojo cho's preference though. Additionally, the organizational rules require one year of solid training in one or the other martial art before cross training both to avoid confusion and other possible issues.

Re: Lateral Training

Not currently - but when I did it was actively encouraged. Go out young man and get thee a judo shodan. On the same tack anyone who came in for a little extra aikido training to supplement what they were doing were welcomed with open arms. I figure you can't have it both ways.

Re: Lateral Training

I used to train in other arts at the same time but I have less time for training now so I'm mainly just studying aikido. I think it is a good thing to train other arts and I would actually be concerned if your dojo or classmates frowned upon it.
