    What is the average amount of time you spend in the dojo/gym/studio?

    I'm currently practicing Teoul Moon Kung Fu and I spend about an hour and a half 5 days a week in practice. My practice consists of streches, kicks, punching set, stances, then forms (weapons and open hand) unfortunatly I'm away from my school of origin so I am currently practicing alone.

    I'm 2 belts/slashes away from my black, and I was wandering how other students spend their time in practice?

    Right now I spend about 1-2 hours 3 days a week practicing with my club in the evening (depending on when I finish my art class). And I spend about 45 minutes to an hour practicing on the off days. Actually going to rework my workout routine to make it more efficient and focus on strength training.

    I don't really count much stretching as part of my workout time since I can do that while watching tv, doing homework, etc. at various times throughout the day separate from my structured designated workout time (along with some other small exercises).

    Strength Training: Monday, Wednesday, Friday
    M-Back, Legs, & Abs
    W-Chest & Abs
    F-Bi, Tris, Abs
    Lifting takes about 1 hour and usually do a 2 mile jog on the tread mill afterwards.


    Kung Fu: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
    I teach class and do basics, stance training, forms, and sparring with my students as much as I can when I am not teaching and correcting. Class is 6-8pm. My workout before that consists of this:

    2-3 minute rounds on the double end ball
    3-3 minute rounds on the thai bag
    2-3 minute rounds boxing (all hands)
    1-3 minute round thai bag (kicks alone)
    1-3 minute round throwing dummy (shuai jiao throws, takedowns, ect.)

    Also will get in some mitt work and Thai mitt work if I have someone to hold for me. Saturday is my open gym day at the school so I usually get a great workout in on that day.

    Including cleaning it or using the treadmill?
    Kung Fu is good for you.
