Style: Muay Thai / BJJ
Just wondering how many different clubs you train at and how often at each.
I'm up to 3. One for each style. I could go to an MMA club and do them all together but like the experience of going to a strictly boxing gym for boxing, Muay thai club for Muay thai. I do BJJ at an MMA club since there is no strictly BJJ clubs here. It is pricer this way but I find the clubs smaller and you get more attention, build a repoire with the owners and students. The MMA clubs in my area are fairly large so you get lost in the sea of students.
I'm at Muay Thai 5x a week

That's a lot of training, how do you fit it in with work and family (if you have such a thing).
I only train at one club, in an ideal week I'll get
Same as Tuesday
Dirty boxing 1hr

I'm lucky to have an MMA club across the street from my work so I do BJJ during my lunch hour. The boxing gym and Muay thai clubs are close to my house. I only double on one day boxing/muay thai training. I'm never home later than 7pm. Thats another reason I like the seperate gyms they offer more classes (earlier). I find the MMA gyms (in my area) tend to do BJJ classes, rolling class, then Muay thai/boxing technique, then sparring so it takes you late in the evening in consecutive order.
I feel like you eyeballin' me, dawg!

Style: Judo, BJJ
3 different judo clubs, depending on the day. I will be starting at a SAMBO club once a week and may be doing BJJ at another judo club.
I feel like you eye-bawlin' me, dawg!

As of this evening, three! I had no idea until last week that the hapkido joint near my workplace had an evening BJJ class, but then they put up a sign offering a deal for new students, so I went tonight and had a lot of fun. (I'm a sucker for convenience, and small classes.)
Anyway, my schedule:
Saturday morning, 9-12: push-hands club. (biweekly and not a school; people just come and play)
Sunday morning, 10-1:30, taiji.
Sunday afternoon, 3-5:30, shuai-chiao
Thursday: 7-8:30, BJJ.
Friday: 7-8:30, BJJ. (we'll see if this sticks)

3 clubs. I host a Balintawak FMA club 2x a week sometimes 3. I also train with a Serrada FMA group 2-3 times a week and just started up muay Thai once a week. All this training is a delicate balance of work school and family time.

@ Rivington: A Sunday class! Cool. Thats the only day all my clubs are closed therefore only day I don't train (would go if they had classes). I usually make it a running day.
It's Friday which means sparring (boxing) day! Can't wait!

Sunday morning open mat :)
I'll be the tall, skinny white dude with his wife and kids rolling around everywhere.
You probably saw my wife at BJJ for Jake. She's the sassy puerto rican chick (white belt).
Don't tell her I said that. She's dangerous now.
