    Sorry if this is in the wrong area. I am curious how far you guys travel to train? Any of you take public transportation?

    I take public transportation (Metro) and it usually takes me just under one hour each direction.

    30-40 minutes car ride.. all depends on traffic..

    i'd like to train closer than that but i'm used to the gym, coaches and people I train with.. I don't see my self moving to a closer gym :(

    I wouldnt travel any more than that... unless you speak about a couple months trip to thailand.. that would be awesome, some day..

    I ussually trian close to home (<20 minutes) however twice a month I travel 2.5 hours (1 way) to train with group of black belts from a number of different styles. We ussually spend 4 or 5 hours together hence the 2.5 hour trip is worth it.
