Here’s me, but this changes week to week, but last week-
With my instructor, about 6 hours, over three lessons.
By myself, about 2 hours over the week. I usually practice my hyung (patterns) every day, this takes maybe 10-15 mins. Longer if I get something wrong and repeat them.
Also I throw random punches and kicks throught the day. Does that count as practice?
Strength- 2-3 hours a week over two days.
Conditioning- Not enough, usually skipping and some bag work for speed at the end of my strength sessions… I know… I know…
Stretching/Mobility- Also not enough, prob. 1-2 hours over the week, partly as part of my lessons, also at the end of strength work…
Time spent thinking/talking about martial arts- 10-12 hours a week.
Time spent in combat sports section of T-Nation- 15-20 hours a week. (mind you, most of that is while I am work…not being slack, I’m a projectionist and there tends to be alot of free time…perhaps I should spend more of that time practicing, shadow boxing and stuff…)
So total, about 10-12 hours, if you don’t include thinking/talking and T-Nation time
Thanks for starting this thread, it’s made me want to practice more. I know I need it.
Will let you know how it’s going, hopefully next time I post I’ll be up around 20ish hours…
Oh and xen- you machine you! I’m guessing- no day job? So, you want to be a pro fighter, I’m guessin, not just a trainer or instructor or what-ever.
I know that irish an kmc really seem to like you, and i’m getting to like those guys… know a little bit about them, but nothin about you…
How old are you man? (if that aint a rude question)
What’s your MA background, like, first art, age started, that kinda stuff.
You been doin amateur fights?
Where do you train, is it a mma place, or do you do dif. arts at dif. places?
What striking art are you practicing?
Ok, enough with the questions, you can ignore my fan-boy questions if you wish. Just been pretty happy to have a few good guys to talk to on here about trainin and stuff, cause, you know, my fiance loves me and all but there’s only so much discussion about “fighting” that she can handle
