My oldest son (19) teaches and trains BJJ 6 days a week. He teaches and takes morning, afternoon and evening classes, plus trains MMA, does fitness training and is currently learning some boxing.
My younger two (12 and 13), train 5 days a week (they have the opportunity to train 6, but I make them take a day off midweek).
My 13 year old son assists in teaching some classes and trains a minimum of 2 classes 5 days a week.
My 12 year old daughter trains just the single class 5 days a week.
I encourage my younger two to walk to and from school, as I think walking is a great way to maintain a general fitness and stamina.
I have seen questions about the minimum training a student should do. Given my children's ages and the fact the oldest does it full time for a living; can too much training affect performance?
My younger two have taken a break from comps for six months, but will resume next year; is there a regime that maximises comp performance?
