Any advice? I need some. I want it because it really important to me. Thanks.?
Question:I take karate and it's REALLY important to me. I take it once a week and this week and Monday - 4/9/07 - will be probably the only two days that I have taken it twice a week. I got a new belt (I was tested for it and the test was ULTRA SUPER MAGA hard (Okay not that hard but it was hard) and the test for it will just keep geting harder.
I want some advice on how to go to karate more than once or twice a week with an almost full schedual. Also my sensei (karate teacher) takes the day off on one day I am free and the other day I'm free his day is full. I also have to make it work with my sparring partner who takes lessons with me.
Mon- 3 different things at different times
Tues- Hebrew school
Wed- Tennis and a lot of homework
Thurs- 1 thing that is about 5 hours (but suprisingly seems short)
NOTE: The days not on are the days that are either
A) My sensei doesn't work
B) My sensei's days are full or
C) I already do that day.
Thanks a bunch for helping me!
If it's truly important to you, you'll drop something else. Or you'll find a studio with a better schedule. Or you'll get a training schedule from your teacher.
It's not rocket science. Everyone has 24 hours in their day, you just have to decide how to spend your hours.

Depending on your partner perhaps trade tennis for Karate.
Tennis is great for fitness,so is Karate.But Karate has the bonus of self defence.Thats a good bonus.
kicks..fron...side.round... a kick 2 practice just cuz its fun.inside swing-roundhouse is my favorite.well u dont exactly hav to do alll of these things but it does make a slight difference and when i go to karate (well rely its a mix of a loota things like jitsu.tae kwon do,and kun fu) and im n a rely bad mood..i concentrate all of my anger and focus it into HYPER-ACTIVE ENERGY! which it does work but if u can try to go n a good mood so just n case u wont slip a sour note 2 ur sensei..when it cums 2 practicing sparring without a sparring partner , try to hav a dummy(call him bob...lol) around so u can practice on him to make sure things like ur elbow stike r clean, quick, and accurate.if there iz none n site then using a pillow...it may not be of much assistance but it will help a tiny bit and thats wat's important.
I HOPE IVE HELPED^_^
My god your a busy girl aren't you!
When i first looked at this question i thought is was some sort of maths test. lol
Seriously 3 times a week is enough to train for any martial artist. Train one day and take the other off that's the best way to train!
Too much of a good thing and you will start to hate what you love the most. Constant practice doesn't make perfect just permanent.
I love it when people think they need to be at the dojo to train! There's loads of things you could be practicing at home or outside.
Speak to your instructor and get him to make up a training program with things you can practice on your own.
Sometimes you have to discover the principles of the techniques for yourself. I don't mean try to learn them without your instructor just try to polish what you already know!
Serious budo's no fun and you only learn when your having fun!
The title of the movie was "The Karate Kid":-) If you think you need to find extra time to practice your Karate, then find creative ways of incorporating your Karate training while working or doing your chores. Think "Wax on, wax off" and you just might be surprised at how much time you can save by hitting 2 birds with 1 stone. There are other aspects of Karate training that can be easily incorporated in your daily activities like breathing exercises, stances, balance, timing and stamina. It's up to you to think of the ways. As the saying goes..."Necessity is the mother of inventions."
