Training hours...

    Wed, 2006-10-04 17:26 — Gerald Rhoades

    How many times a week do you guys train?? and how long each session??
    Cuz ive heard about some people training like 2 or 3 times a day 5 to 6 days a week, and i was like damn!!
    I train in Monterrey Mexico (im currently finishing my medical training over here...dying to be finished so i can head back to the states...lol) And there is only 1 place to train BJJ at, so its my only option, and we have 2 classes a week with instructor (last about 2 to 3 hours) and a 3rd class on fridays no instructor, just rolling. Is that weak, or ok ?? this is one of the reasons i was thinking about getting one of those dummies...

    Hey, twice a week is better then no training. I have missed months at a time and trained 6 days a week at others. Enjoy what you have and keep learning. :cool:

    Dang, i feel like crap now, i am only able to get one day a week in, because of work and school schedule.

    How much do you guys pay monthly to train?
    I pay right $30 a month for one day a week, hopefully when my schedule changes i can go up to four times a week for $75 a month.

    I pay 500 pesos a month, which is something in between 50 to 55 dollars...its 2 days a week with instructor and 1 day just students rolling....i know what you mean cshudson...i always feel like crap too when i hear about other guys training more than one time a day and shit...lol
    although, today i just found out that at my university there is a BJJ class in the gym....i couldnt believe it, i had never heard of it and it was right under my nose...So im gonna go check it out, hopefully there on different days than those that i currently train so that way i can get more training in during the week...

    training hours

    hello,

    no training hours here. not a grappler yet. just wondering. is it ok to train two or three schools simultaneously? assuming instructors are ok with it, does it usually work?

    help!!

    thanks.

    I would probably stick with one school to begin with. After you get some experience then you can bounce around some.

    I will try to cover them again I hope I do not mess up. Eddie Bravo is good, Ian Harris (Bodies in motion Santa Monica), Legends (Randy Cortoure), Machados, and possibly John McCarthy's. Also there is Chute Box USA in Holllywood.

    hello,

    just revistited this thread. guess the situation is a little different now. seems to work out to about six hours per week. figured that the advice of kibuninc is being followed. two training groups, but they all seem to have started out together (for the most part), so it is largely the same program.

    ratio of classes seems to be about 4 to 1 gi to no gi. at this point, since everything is new, seems a little haphazard, but have been assured there is a method to the madness.

    the classes (or gatherings) run as they have time for (some a bit shorter, some a bit longer). they also train longer if the subject matter is difficult for some.

    as fitness level improves, the number of classes and duration should increase. we'll see. hahahaha!!!

    thanks.
