Hello all I need some help. Where I live is totally barren of FMA schools, but it's a style of combat that I have always wanted to study. A member of this site kindly suggested an instructor (who teaches Lacoste) who lives 'out in the sticks' that had started a new school. I promptly went along and started training there, however over time I am starting to get a bad feeling of 'should I be doing this?' And here's why; The class is once a week and is 45 minutes long. I have asked if the class would be made longer at any time - but was told no as it is a village hall that really is in the middle of nowhere, and it has to be closed at a certain time. The class is a 60 mile round trip, so if I know I could be 10 minutes late, there is no point in going as the class is strictly 45 minutes long. I also have a sizeable fuel bill as a consequence of the distance each month. Also due to the class length I am concerned at what standard I would be at the classes black belt level. I am concerned that 45 minutes is too short to take much information in and get dextrious at the drills. However on the flipside I do like the instructor and I am keen to learn FMA and the only other class (who does teach longer classes in Warriors Eskrima) is a 70 mile round trip. So it appears that it's this or nothing; which is really frustrating me. So if you was me what would you do? Quit? Stick with it? Or just look for a good instructor closer - even if it's a different style of martial arts?
