Wondering how much people train (in a school/dojo with an instructor, not practicing at home or by yourself--that's for another thread!). Would also like to know what people think is optimal? I know I would train everyday if I could! Also, do your sessions last 1 or 2 (or other) hours?

One and a half hours twice a week, one hour once a week. In a perfect world I would train four or five times a week with an instructor.

Currently one session of two to three hours one on one tuition, plus we're always discussing concepts etc while doing stalls and stuff. I have a great instructor (don't tell him I said so though) so he always gives me a lot of ideas to work on by myself.

two to three times a week for an hour and a half. would like to get in more, but am pretty busy and my dojo is an hour away. My eventual goal is to attend every class in a week (5 classes).

They only run classes 3 times a week I'm there for 2, cause yeah it the first two night's are meant to be for competition players, but I've been doing judo for eight years; so I've well above everyone in the club except the other coachs; and it's hard at the moment to get time and money to travel to other clubs for better training.
I normally do weights training 2 times a week, when I have the time I often find myself in their at any chance trying to improve my body. I'm doing the bets I can. Doesn't seem like it's getting me anywhere at times...

I usually train 3 times weekly(in class) and everyday at home, although these days I have lightened up as I have an injury that requires surgery to fix. I plan on picking up my schedule again once I have healed.
