Has anyone else ever reached a point on their path through MA when they have for whatever reason either lost interest or motivation or have completely stopped training. I don’t mean the occasional "oh its cold and raining I won’t go training tonight". I am talking seriously lost all motivation.
I decided to leave the Shotokan club and instructor I was training with (3 times per week in addition to doing another system once a week and personal training in the gym). The reason for my leaving was that I came to a realisation that as I had no respect for the association then why would I want to attain 1st dan with said organisation. My old instructor was supportive of this decision (he has had many grievances with said association over the years) but was sad to loose me a student / club member.
I spent the following 3 months visiting and training at numerous clubs in London where I work and across Kent, some good, some not so , I even sampled other styles Kyokushinkai, Goju, and Wado to name a few, however none seemed to tick all the boxes. I have’nt attended formal class training since January, I keep saying and meaning to get back on the horse but like Austin Powers I seem to have lost my mojo.
