I am starting this thread to gather perspective on my experience with changing martial arts clubs. I'd been with the same instructor for 3 1/2 years before moving and was unprepared for how difficult it is for me to adapt. Please note, my new instructor is a really impressive martial artist and I know I have a ton to learn from him. There are a lot of factors: difference in instruction methods, differences in the work out, differences in techniques, issues of changing loyalty, to name a few. Have any of you changed clubs after a significant amount of time? Was it difficult for you? If so, how long did the hard part last? Do you have any advice on how to make it easier? Thanks.
