Hey f12, just wanted some input. My gym cancelled the afternoon classes and now only have night classes. So the bjj instructors only teach at night classes. I been going to this gym for about 4.5 years. I got my blue belt at this gym. I been lucky that a buddy has been opening the gym for us at the afternoon, and he can come most days, but there has been times that he or everybody is busy. This has been going on for 4 months. Due to my job changing I won't be able to train at night. Night time classes is where all the upper belts train. I'm left to basically train myself through books and videos and drilling. In terms of training partners during the afternoon I am the biggest guy and most of the time the most experienced guy. (The buddy opens the gym is more experienced, but sometimes he is busy, so he opens the gym and leaves to do errands. )There are like 5 or 6 that train in the afternoon, but the most we had was 4 people. Basically it's an open mat. Why I am still there is because of loyalty. But I feel to progress I need to find other training partners, and to get some coaching. There are the rare times a purple belt will come, but that's far in between. The only dilemma I face is that the only other gym in town offers bjj two times a week during the afternoon, and whereas the current gym I'm at I can potentially get four open mats a week. I don't have the funds to join two gyms. Just wondering what you guys thought and do in my shoes. And I do plan to compete as well, havnt done it at blue belt level. Been blue for 1.5 years.
