    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    How much MA training do you do?

    I train 1 Martial Art (Wado) twice a week for three hours at a stretch, then supplement with alternating running/weight training regimen on other days with one day totally off.

    I still feel like I'm just starting to 'get it' when it comes to my technique and sparring. After years of sitting on the couch, my body is just getting back into shape now. I know a lot of people here are mixed MMA guys who train two or three arts at once. My question is: how much time do you put in to each art, and how hard is it to integrate them?

    Arrgh! I tried searching under "Training+Frequency" and a few others, and couldn't find anything. Thanks for pointing it out.

    No problem. I found it with the phrase "much train", but I'd read that thread before so I knew what I was looking for.

    Anyway, for shits and giggles, I train BJJ 1 hours every weeknight (5 in a row). So about 7 hours a week. I'm going to be adding in a 1 hour Muay Thai class soon, since one of the guys at BJJ teaches one class of it a week.

    On a note related to MUT's question, I was searching for an old (long) thread asking Bullshido members what their jobs were that allowed them to train.

    Anyone know where that thread is? I've tried all kinds of searches.
    MY NAME IS ANTAGONY I SUCK AT COMBAT SPORTS KTHX

    "blahblahblah, but I don't think I'm going to train tonight."
    "Fag."
    "Well if that were true, then I'd really REALLY want to come train!"

    Don't know abouyt the thread, but I'll answer the time question.

    I get up early. I run, stretch and do weights or bagwork, and some calisthenics. I get up at 6:00 am and I'm showered and ready to go by 8:00 am. I can be in my office by 9. I'm self employed so I can show up when I want, so it works out well most days (unless I have meetings).

    My classes are in the evenings on Monday and Friday, so I try to get out of the office by 5, so I can be there for 6. Doesn't always work, and I miss sometimes. I also help teach kids on the occassional Tuesday evening and Saturday mornings. It works out well because my kids are both involved. It's been a great way to keep close with my kids.

    wado is a branch off of shotokan, its founder Hironori Ohtsuka was one of Gichin Funakoshi's senior students, however, Hironori drew most of his potential for wado
    from ju-jutsu thus incorperating hip movement for a faster and more powerful punch and
    unlike shotokan, wado prefers evasion and or countering attacks rather then taking the full force of a blow head on, wado is considered by many to be one of the fastest of all karate styles,

    i also only study wado, however i practice at least 2 hours a day outside of class if not more
    that includes my lunch break at work lol :ninjafigh

    wado sucks


    at the moment my only actual MA training consists of getting up at 8am on saturday mornings with a tequila hangover after being up til 4am that morning, stumbling across town, and helping teach a beginners sparring class. the students are becoming aware that loud noises, sunlight, or cheerful behavior are not welcome or appreciated.

    still do weights during the week though
