Hi, I'm a new member. Joined up because I'll be working in Yokohama from April on this year.
I've done some martial arts growing up and would like to train in Japan. I was wondering if anyone knows how often you are expected to go to training in a Japanese dojo? Back home in Australia people think you're amazing if you go 3 times a week, but I got the impression that the Japanese expect a lot more. Just want to be prepared and know what I'm in for. Any feedback is much appreciated.
Not unusual for high school kids to training morning and night five days a week and once each day on weekends..
3 times a week would be a minimum..
basically, if there is a session on - we should be there.
