That is a good plan. In a majority of cases the time spent in the dojo/school is at least somewhat structured and always limited. There is only so much that can be done in a one or two hour session. Home/solo training and practise is best spent on refining specific techniques, and whatever there isnít enough time to do in the school/dojo such as basics, strength etc..

Solo training from a senior perspective needs to be tweaked as too much of one thing seems to be neglecting another.

Therefore my solo training will never be the same from one week to another, being creative and innovative seems to keep me motivated, being open minded, finding other martial art styles and systems fascinating works also.

As my solo training starting a new week will be based on a theme, dividing my time on dry land/gym and dojo and water/swimming pool and water spa.

As doing kicks and techniques/katas, stretching in water gives a whole new perspective to training methods usually done on dry surfaces/land.

With my usual 7 hrs a day, divided in to 2 training sessions, it will be interesting for me personally to see how if any improvements are made by training wet and dry on a daily basis.

This is part of training to win methodology.

Thank you RW.

Isometrics works perfectly with the ABC principle
