    I have started Judo few months ago I love it but I would like to add more training because I only train 3 times a week now. I wanted to add kickboxing but I think my age is working against me I started pretty old (23) and I think that doing kickboxing and judo for each 3 times a week I wouldn't get really good at anything.

    So my question is would it be better for me to just focus on Judo and add 2 or 3 days a week to my training so I'll be training 5/6 days a week pure grappling and worry later about striking?

    If yes does anyone train the same art in 2 different gyms? Would this benefit me to have 2 teachers?

    I do not see the problem at training Judo at 2 gyms.

    It might get confusing because each instructor tends to teach their style.

    But it does not really matters.

    I would expect the adults class to be pretty advanced anyway where most the students would be shodan anyway.

    There's nothing even remotely like the "creonte" stereotype in Judo. There's an expectation that you will train with pretty much anyone who was available.

    I believe that the general judo etiquette is that you pick one club as a 'home' club that tracks your promotions. Then you inform coach at that home club about your intention to train at another club. When you come to the other club you inform them that you train elsewhere.

    And yes, we have kids in our club who train elsewhere as well.

    I think you should spend the other two days further developing your career and socializing with women. No reason to grapple 5 days a week.

    Hahahahahahahahahahahaha.




    Oh you're serious?

    Well, I train more than that and I still have time to meet women, don't have time for anything serious though. But yeah, I'd rather be grappling anyway.

    My gym has at least 3 instructors. Also the two head instructors have the same first name but each one is built different and have taught me different ways to do same throws so I would say it is pretty prevalent even within the same club.

    I like to drop into different places to train. My own gym is pretty small so im sparring the same guys all the time, and most arent great, so i travel elsewhere to get beat up off really good guys. Cant be a bad thing challenging yourself.
