    FHW (fighting hours per week)

    Do tell.

    That's randori only, y'all. Drilling, intense conversations, etc. don't count.

    During winter break, I go 10+ hours easily. During a more normal week during the school year, I'm lucky to hit 4.

    Not counting time spent stretching, talking about MMA, or mocking each other. Counting time spent doing drills (like maintaining the mount, or person on bottom tries to sweep or submit, person on top tries to pass).

    That's 2-3 times a week, from around 7, 730 to around 9, 930.

    I'm not talking about drills so much as free-fighting.

    Should I have made the wording clearer?

    4 is the least I ever get (which is about 50% of the time). Sometimes I can get up to 10 or 12 though... depends on the week.
    I chose 4 hrs.

    I voted 3-4, by the way. On a bad week, I'll only get in 1 or 2, but on a good week (which is maybe 1 in 3), I'll get in 5-6.

    Personally, I'd really like to increase the amount of time I spend training in this manner. Unofortunately, I'm one of those guys who doesn't generally get a whole lot out of seeing techniques described or even demonstrated; I really need to experience them for myself.

    I train Judo 3 times a week, Aikido 4 times a week, and spar with friends on the weekends.
    Time spent sparring all up? At least 5 or 6 hours..

    3-4 seems to be popular, which is good cuz I picked it! Soon it will be more as I prepare for a tourney.
