I had to do a Undergraduate degree which took a similar time commitment for three years in England but four in other countries.

    However I couldn't achieve either of these qualifications without the ability to read, write and an understanding of basic functional maths which is a significant period of time. Especially if the person is Dyslexic like me
    My masters is 4 quarters per year full time (12 credits) for two years. So that's a thing.

    There are certainly people who have spent 10,000 hours doing something and still suck at it.

    Hypothetical question here:

    If I spend 10KH trying to suck at something, and still suck at sucking, does that means I've actually gained competence?

    This is very, very important.

    I'd take 5000 hours of quality instruction, practice, and top notch partners over 10,000 crappling hours any day. Besides that, being a knucklehead yourself may greatly reduce the effectiveness of your practice.

    Your mileage may vary.

    This is true, the caveat is you need to spend those 10,000 hours practicing right.

    I would suggest that if someone spent 10,000 hour rolling with only white belts will get really good at beating white belts but not much ever.

    I just did the math for myself. I'm at approximately 5,600 hours after 13 years of BJJ. That's 12 hours a week for two years when I started, 8 hours a week for the next nine years, and 6 hours a week for the last two years. I'm surprised by how low my total is.

    Hmm, I need to find a way to train more.
